Kunshan Aluminium Co., Ltd. has achieved ASI Chain of Custody Standard Certification for its production facilities in Kunshan City, Jiangsu Province. Kunshan Aluminium Co., Ltd. achieved certification against the ASI Performance Standard in February 2020.
Aluminium Stewardship Initiative (ASI) today announced that Kunshan Aluminium Co., Ltd. has been successfully certified against the ASI Chain of Custody Standard for its Kunshan City, Jiangsu Province facility. The facility’s products are destined for use in a range of downstream sectors, including food, cigarettes, medicine, daily necessities, cosmetics and other high-end packaging foil and high-grade foil for the electronics industry. The plant has a capacity of 25,000 tonnes of aluminium foil per year.
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 ASI CoC Standard sets out requirements for the creation of a Chain of Custody for material that is produced and processed through the value chain into diverse downstream sectors. The implementation of ASI’s CoC Standard links verified practices at successive steps of the supply chain – certified under the ASI Performance Standard – to the products produced by ASI Certified Entities. The independent, third-party audits of the Kunshan Aluminium Co., Ltd. facility was carried out by DNV GL.
Fiona Solomon, Chief Executive Officer at ASI said, “We warmly congratulate Kunshan Aluminium Co., Ltd. on achieving ASI Chain of Custody Certification. Aluminium foil producers can play an important role to communicate the sustainability benefits of aluminium products to a broader audience, simply because their foils are used in so many downstream applications, including a wide array of consumer products. When paired with appropriate upstream sourcing, the ASI Chain of Custody certification is an important step that enables this communication, through the use of on-product labels and statements.”
Mr. Yuan Bisheng, General Manager of Kunshan Aluminium Co., Ltd. said: First of all, we are very honoured to be certified by the ASI Chain of Custody. Thank you ASI for the official recognition of our company. In the future, Kunshan Aluminium Co., Ltd will continue to use its influence to further promote the active participation of suppliers for mutual benefit and contribute to the realization of global aluminium responsible procurement and sustainable development of aluminium.
