Constellium has achieved Certification to the ASI Performance Standard for its Singen casting and rolling facilities in Germany, demonstrating its commitment to environmental, social and governance performance. The company’s Singen facility is one of Constellium’s largest sites and serves the automotive and the packaging markets.
Aluminium Stewardship Initiative (ASI) today announced that Constellium’s Singen casting and rolling facilities have been successfully certified against ASI’s Performance Standard for responsible production, sourcing and stewardship of aluminium. The plant has high-grade cold mills and an integrated hot/cold rolling line.
The ASI Certification program was developed through an extensive multi-stakeholder consultation process and is the only comprehensive voluntary sustainability standard initiative for the aluminium value chain. The independent, third-party audit of Constellium was carried out by GUTcert (AFNOR Group).
Fiona Solomon, Chief Executive Officer at ASI, said “We congratulate Constellium and the Singen team for this certification, a clear tribute to their longstanding engagement in ASI and dedication and engagement to implementing sustainable practices in their business. As a founding member of ASI, Constellium has greatly contributed to defining responsible production and stewardship standards for the aluminium industry. We are excited to know that they plan to continue their ASI certification journey, and support suppliers and customers in their responsible sourcing efforts.”
“Singen’s certification is an important milestone in Constellium’s sustainable journey. It demonstrates our commitment to produce high value-added solutions in a responsible and sustainable way,” said Catherine Athènes, Vice President Group Sustainability at Constellium.
“The certification inspired us to take a holistic approach towards sustainability in operations at Singen. We are now working to certify our casting and rolling operations against the ASI Chain of Custody Standard, and expect to complete this certification by the end of 2019,” said Robert Gabor, Plant Manager Packaging & Automotive Rolled Products Singen. While pursuing certification of its operations, Constellium also helps its key metal suppliers with their certification processes, in order to offer its customers ASI certified products.
