Capral Aluminium has achieved ASI Performance Standard V3 (2022) and Chain of Custody (CoC) Standard V2 (2022) Certification for the manufacturing of aluminium extruded products. Capral Aluminium is the largest producer and distributor of aluminium profiles in Australia.

Aluminium Stewardship Initiative (ASI) today announced that Capral Aluminium has been certified against the ASI Performance Standard V3 and Chain of Custody V2 for the extrusion, warehousing and distribution of aluminium product and services. The certifications apply to all of Capral’s 26 facilities, composed of mills, distribution centres and trade centres, which are spread across every state and territory in Australia. The company’s range of geometric extrusions, machine rod, plate and aluminium sheet products are destined for use in a wide range of industries including residential and commercial construction, transport, marine, and general engineering. Capral Aluminium is the first extruded product manufacturer in Australasia to achieve ASI Certification.

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 and ASI CoC Standard V2 were launched in May 2022 following a multi-year revision process.

The ASI Performance Standard 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, such as biodiversity, Indigenous Peoples rights, circularity, and greenhouse gas emissions. 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 issues, such as corruption, human rights abuses, materials originating from conflict-affected and high-risk areas in the supply chain and support responsible sourcing.

The independent, third-party audit of the Capral Aluminium operations was carried out by DNV Business Assurance Services UK Ltd.

“We warmly congratulate Capral Aluminium for achieving dual ASI Certification at its 26 facilities across Australia. For companies like Capral that are in the downstream part of the aluminium value chain, traceability is critical for identification of potential environmental and social risks, which enhances accountability and helps to identify any non-compliance or unethical practices associated with the upstream supply chain. Capral’s ASI Certifications demonstrate that it supports responsible sourcing, transparency, accountability in its own operations and along the entire aluminium value chain.”

– Fiona Solomon, Chief Executive Officer at ASI

“As buyers become increasingly conscious of the environmental impact of products, Capral’s ASI certification is a significant achievement and reinforces our position as a responsible and sustainable business. It has been a difficult journey; these standards set high benchmarks and are assessed rigorously by third-party auditors. We can proudly hang our hat on the fact that we are the first Australasian aluminium extruder to achieve certification under the ASI Performance and Chain of Custody standards. Our management systems developed over many years helped us achieve this in less than twelve months – a phenomenal effort by our team.”

– Tony Dragicevich, CEO at Capral
