ASI certifies Aludium Premium Aluminium against Chain of Custody Standard
The facility manufactures bright aluminum materials, catering to industries such as construction, automotive, transportation, packaging, and general engineering.
28 September 2023
Aludium Premium Aluminium (Aludium) has achieved ASI Chain of Custody (CoC) Standard V1 (2017) Certification at its cold rolling mill at its Aludium France SAS subsidiary in Castelsarrasin, France for the production of coils. Aludium has now certified all three of its production facilities to the ASI Chain of Custody Standard. Aludium France SAS achieved Performance Standard Certification in April 2023.
Aluminium Stewardship Initiative (ASI) today announced that Aludium France SAS has been certified against the ASI Chain of Custody Standard for its semi-fabrication operations. The facility manufactures bright aluminum materials, catering to industries such as construction, automotive, transportation, packaging, and general engineering.
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 CoC Standard also confirms that appropriate policies and due diligence process are in place to identify and address critical supply chain issues, such as corruption, human rights abuses, materials originating from conflict-affected and high-risk areas in the supply chain, and responsible sourcing.
The independent, third-party audit of the Aludium France SAS facility was carried out by DNV Business Assurance Services UK Ltd. The audit took place prior to May 31, 2023, thus enabling a Performance Standard V2 certification. No non-conformances were identified.
“We congratulate Aludium on achieving CoC Certification at their bright aluminium mill at Castelsarrasin, France. Through strategic investments in recycling capacity and preserving the quality of its materials through closed loops with customers, Aludium fortifies its important role in the circular economy. With all of its facilities now certified against the ASI CoC Standard, Aludium demonstrates to its customers that the company is implementing responsible production practices and policies, and that its products meet the ASI Standards.”
