AWB Aluminiumwerk Berlin GmbH has achieved ASI Performance Standard V2 (2017) Certification for the production of aluminium extrusions and mechanical processing at its Berlin, Germany facility. The facility can process up to 22,000 tonnes of aluminium billets annually for its extrusion production.

Aluminium Stewardship Initiative (ASI) today announced that AWB Aluminiumwerk Berlin GmbH has been certified against the ASI Performance Standard. The extrusion facility’s products are destined primarily for use in the building and construction sector.

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 defines environmental, social and governance principles and criteria, with the aim to address sustainability issues in the aluminium value chain. It sets out 59 criteria under the three sustainability pillars of Environment, Social, and Governance, which address key issues such as biodiversity, Indigenous Peoples rights, and greenhouse gas emissions.

The independent, third-party audit of the AWB Aluminiumwerk Berlin GmbH operation was carried out by TÜV NORD CERT GmbH.

“ASI warmly congratulates AWB Aluminiumwerk Berlin GmbH on achieving Performance Standard Certification at its Berlin extrusion operation. Actions relevant to ASI’s biodiversity criteria are a positive highlight in this ASI Certification, even though the operations are in an industrial zone setting. We commend AWB Aluminiumwerk Berlin GmbH on their leading practice with formalized activities to protect an IUCN Red List lizard species whose habitat is on the facility’s site.”

– Fiona Solomon, Chief Executive Officer at ASI

“‘We live sustainable’ is our guideline at AWB Aluminiumwerk Berlin GmbH, and being officially certified to the ASI Performance Standard, one of the highest industry standards for sustainability and responsible practices in the aluminium industry, reflects AWB’s focus on sustainability in the complete aluminium value chain. We now look forward to achieving Chain of Custody Certification and offering ASI Certified Aluminium to our customers in the future.”

– Florian Bachnick, CEO at AWB Aluminiumwerk Berlin GmbH.
