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 (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 facility’s extruded products and aluminium alloy ingots serve a wide range of downstream industries.

The company’s Performance Standard Certification offers its customers independent verification of the extent of the company’s adherence to environmental, social, and governance criteria in its production practices.”
