April newsletter highlights
We just sent out the April 2019 ASI News! Some highlights from this month’s issue:
- Understanding ASI’s outcomes and impacts
ASI Certification is not an end itself – ASI’s vision is to maximise the contribution of aluminium to a sustainable society. This will mean practices and performances in the value chain need to keep improving. How will we know whether ASI is helping to contribute to a better world?
- LME Responsible Sourcing Consultation
The London Metal Exchange (LME) last week announced the next phase of development of new responsible sourcing standards for their listed brands, including aluminium. A new round of market-wide consultation by LME, open until 30 June 2019, seeks feedback on their proposed rules for all LME-listed brands. LME will be presenting on its proposals at the ASI AGM Week in Norway in early June.
