ASI certifies Constellium’s Singen facility against ASI Chain of Custody Standard
Constellium has achieved Certification to the ASI Chain of Custody Standard for its Singen casting and rolling facilities in Germany, demonstrating its commitment to environmental, social and governance performance. The company’s Singen operation is one of Constellium’s largest sites and serves the automotive and the packaging markets.
Aluminium Stewardship Initiative (ASI) today announced that Constellium’s Singen casting and rolling facilities have been successfully certified against ASI’s Chain of Custody (CoC) Standard for responsible production, sourcing and stewardship of aluminium. These facilities also received ASI Performance Standard Certification in July 2019.
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 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 independent, third-party audit of Constellium was carried out by GUTcert (AFNOR Group).
ASI Chief Executive Officer, Fiona Solomon, said “We applaud Constellium for their commitment to ASI’s mission since joining as a founding member, and for achieving ASI Certification for both ASI Standards at its Singen facilities. Certifying against both standards is critical to support market choice for responsibly produced aluminium.”
“We are very proud of this key milestone in our sustainability journey,” said Peter Basten, President, Packaging and Rolled Automotive Products business unit at Constellium. “This full certification demonstrates our strong commitment to operate in a sustainable manner, and to respond to our customers and society’s request for responsible aluminium solutions.”
