apt Holding GmbH has achieved ASI Performance Standard V3 (2022) Certification for two of its European facilities: apt Extrusions GmbH & Co. KG facility in Germany and apt Holding GmbH’s apt Extrusions B.V. facility in the Netherlands. The Germany facility includes remelting and casthouse operations for extrusion billets, four extrusion presses, an anodising plant, and mechanical machining capabilities. The Netherlands facility encompasses two extrusion presses, an anodising plant, and mechanical machining operations.

Aluminium Stewardship Initiative (ASI) today announced that apt Holding GmbH has been certified against the ASI Performance Standard V3 (2022). apt Holding GmbH is a producer of extruded profiles, serving companies in the construction, transportation, automotive, and industrial sectors. The company’s current production capacities include 80,000 tonnes per year for extrusion presses, 7 million square meters per year for surface finishing, and 15,000 tonnes per year for mechanical processing.

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 Performance Standard V3 (2022) defines 11 principles and 62 criteria under three sustainability pillars – Environment, Social, and Governance – with the aim to address pressing sustainability issues in the aluminium value chain.

The independent, third-party audit of the apt Holding GmbH facilities was carried out by TÜV Rheinland Cert GmbH. A full listing of audit findings outlining evidence of conformances and minor non-conformances is available from page 5 of the summary audit report, linked below. One minor non-conformance is noted under Criterion 11.1b-e Occupational Health and Safety (OH&S) Management System – Reviews and disclosure. During the Certification Period, apt Holding GmbH will be implementing a corrective action plan, which will be verified in follow-up audits.

“We congratulate apt Holding GmbH on achieving Performance Standard Certification V3 (2022). As a producer of extruded aluminium profiles for a wide range of industries benefiting from the lightweighting, and corrosion resistance properties of aluminium, apt Holding’s Certification highlights the importance of sustainable manufacturing processes and demonstrates their commitment to fostering improved ESG outcomes.”

– Fiona Solomon, Chief Executive Officer of the Aluminium Stewardship Initiative


“For us, ASI Certification is confirmation that our initiatives to act in an ESG-compliant manner have been successful. Society will only accept energy-intensive production if companies make it clear that they are doing business sustainably on their own accord.”

– Michael Zint, CEO of apt Group
