Guangyuan Linfeng Aluminum & Electricity Co., LTD, has achieved ASI Performance Standard V2 (2017) Certification for its aluminium smelting activities at the Yuanjiaba Industrial Park, Guangyuan Economic and Technological Development Zone, China. The facility has an annual output of around 250,000 tons of aluminium in liquid and ingot form.

Aluminium Stewardship Initiative (ASI) today announced that Guangyuan Linfeng Aluminum & Electricity Co., LTD has been certified against the ASI Performance Standard. The facility’s aluminium smelting operation is based on the abundant hydropower available in Sichuan province. Its products are destined for the production of aluminium strip and foil as well as automotive wheel manufacturing.

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.

The independent, third-party audit of the Guangyuan Linfeng Aluminum & Electricity Co., LTD operation was carried out by SGS-CSTC Standards Technical Services.

“We congratulate Guangyuan Linfeng Aluminum & Electricity Co., LTD for achieving Performance Standard Certification for its aluminium smelting activities facility in Sichuan Province, China. The carbon footprint of the facility’s production process benefits from local renewable energy via hydropower with the further integration of low-temperature, low-voltage aluminum electrolysis technology. ASI Performance Standard Certification goes beyond carbon footprint to address a full spectrum of sustainability criteria, demonstrating the company’s commitment to responsible production practices.”

– Fiona Solomon, Chief Executive Officer at ASI
