The company is mainly engaged in the research and development, production and sales of aluminum sheets, strips and foils.

Aluminium Stewardship Initiative (ASI) today announced that China Hongqiao Group Co., Ltd. has been certified against the ASI Performance Standard at its subsidiary Shandong Hongchuang Aluminum Industry Holding Co., Ltd. (and its subsidiaries Binzhou Hongbo Aluminum Foil Technology Co., Ltd., Zouping Hongcheng Aluminum Technology Co., Ltd., and Zouping Hongzhuo Aluminum Co., Ltd.).

The companies have an annual production capacity of 200,000 tonnes of roll-casting plate, 200,000 tonnes of cold rolled plate and 120,000 tonnes of foils.

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, labour rights, Indigenous Peoples rights, and greenhouse gas emissions.
