Grupa Kęty S.A. has achieved ASI Performance Standard V2 (2017) Certification for its foundry and extrusion plant for the production of billets and manufacturing of aluminium profiles and components at its production facilities in Kęty, Poland.

Aluminium Stewardship Initiative (ASI) today announced that Grupa Kęty S.A. has been certified against the ASI Performance Standard at its facilities in Kęty, Poland. The company is the biggest Polish manufacturer of aluminium profiles and components with an annual production capacity of 90,000 tonnes per year. The foundry consisting of four lines can produce up to 50,000 tonnes of billets annually from a feedstock including aluminium scrap, which in 2022 amounted to 31,000 tonnes.

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 V2 (2017) 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.

The independent, third-party audits of Grupa Kęty S.A. facility was carried out by TÜV Rheinland Cert GmbH.

“We congratulate Grupa Kęty S.A. for achieving ASI Performance Standard Certification at its foundry and extrusion plant in Kęty, Poland. Using scrap in billet production requires less energy than using primary aluminium and further reduces the environmental impact of the production process. With a focus on energy reduction and through its ASI Certification, Grupa Kęty demonstrates its leadership in promoting responsible practices and contributes to a more responsible aluminium value chain.”

– Fiona Solomon, Chief Executive Officer at ASI

“In 2023, we celebrate 70 years of Grupa KĘTY S.A. ‘Strong Business – Sustainable Development’ is our anniversary slogan, which reflects both our efforts to build a strong business and prospects and challenges faced in the area of sustainable development, which are a signpost for the future of our company, including carbon footprint reduction by way of developing a range of easily recyclable, innovative aluminium semi-products. Obtaining the ASI Performance Standard certificate is therefore very special for us. It is a testimony to our deep commitment to comply with the concept of circular economy and aspirations for a climate-neutral future. We have made and will continue to make efforts to ensure the creation of a better society, retaining balance with protecting the environment.”

– Piotr Wysocki, Member of the Management Board, Deputy General Director
