CMS Jant Sanayi A.S. (CMS Jant) has achieved ASI Performance Standard V3 (2022) Certification with a focus on Material Stewardship for production of aluminium alloy wheels at its Çiğli-1, Çiğli-2, and Gaziemir facilities located in Izmir, Turkey. The facilities’ processes include melting and casting and the sale of wheels to vehicle manufacturers in Turkey. By attaining Material Stewardship Certification, CMS Jant has met the applicable criteria within Principles 1-4 of the Performance Standard V3 (2022).

Aluminium Stewardship Initiative (ASI) today announced that CMS Jant has been certified against Principles 1-4 of the ASI Performance Standard V3 (2022) for three of its Izmir facilities. The three facilities specialise in manufacturing automotive wheels, with a collective production capacity of around nine million wheels per annum.

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 (PS) V3 (2022) was launched in May 2022 following a multi-year revision process. It 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 Material Stewardship Certification is in a transition phase from the PS V2 (2017) to the PS V3 (2022) Standard, such that the first Certification cycle under the 2022 Standard will be against applicable criteria of at least Principles 1-4. These same Facilities will be required to demonstrate Conformance to all 11 Principles within 5 years after the launch of the V3 (2022) Standard.

The independent, third-party audit of the CMS Jant facility was carried out by CETIZION Verifica. A full listing of audit findings outlining evidence of conformances and minor non-conformance is available from page 5 of the summary audit report, linked below. Five minor non-conformances are noted under Criteria 1.2 Anti-Corruption, 2.4a-e Responsible Sourcing, 3.1a-b Sustainability Reporting, 4.1a Environmental Life Cycle Assessment and 4.1b-c Environmental Life Cycle Assessment -Disclosure. CMS Jant will be implementing a corrective action plan, the implementation of which will be verified in follow-up audits.

“We congratulate CMS Jant for achieving Material Stewardship Certification against Performance Standard V3 (2022) for the aluminium alloy wheel production at its Çiğli-1, Çiğli-2, and Gaziemir facilities in Turkey. Aluminium’s properties, such as its lightweight nature, corrosion resistance and strength have contributed to improved sustainability performance in the automotive industry, with wheels playing a key role in that improvement. By attaining this initial Material Stewardship Certification, CMS Jant demonstrates its commitment to addressing a growing number of ESG criteria in its production processes, and can continue to leverage the Performance Standard in its pursuit of more sustainable practices as it transitions to Full Certification.”
