Cevher Jant A.Ş. has achieved ASI Performance Standard V2 (2017) Certification with a focus on Material Stewardship for the production of automobile wheels at two facilities located in Izmir, Turkey. The Cevher company has an annual wheel production capacity of two million aluminium alloy wheels.
Aluminium Stewardship Initiative (ASI) today announced that Cevher Jant A.Ş. (CEVHER) has been certified against the Performance Standard (V2) 2017 at its automobile wheel production facilities in Izmir, Turkey. CEVHER is a co-design partner with automotive OEMs, and brings the in-house capacity to design, develop, manufacture, and validate the wheels produced.
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. ASI Performance Standard certifications focusing on ‘material stewardship’ address issues such as product design, life cycle assessments, management of process scrap and collection and recycling of products at end-of-life.
The independent, third-party audit of the Cevher Jant A.Ş. facilities was carried out by Libero Assurance.
“ASI congratulates CEVHER on achieving Performance Standard Certification with Material Stewardship focus at its two Izmir, Turkey production facilities. Increasing aluminium use in the auto industry is often perceived as being for lightweighting in the body structure and panels. However, aluminium wheels also lighten overall vehicle weight, and with aerodynamic wheel design, improve a vehicle’s efficiency. CEVHER’s Performance Standard Certification provides assurance of its aluminium material stewardship approach for its wheel production activities.”
– Fiona Solomon, Chief Executive Officer at ASI
“One of the significant milestones of Cevher’s sustainability strategy was to be officially certified to the ASI Performance Standard, as proof of our commitment to the material stewardship of aluminium, and show our support for responsible production and sourcing throughout the value chain. We are proud of receiving this certification and this encourages us to pursue our sustainability goals even more eagerly. “
– Mr. Oguz Ozmen, Cevher Group COO and Executive Committee Member
