Jiangsu Zhongji Lamination Materials Co., Ltd, has achieved Certification to the ASI Chain of Custody for its facility in Jiangyin City, China. The certification includes post-casthouse activities related to their aluminium foil production.

Aluminium Stewardship Initiative (ASI) today announced that Jiangsu Zhongji Lamination Materials Co., Ltd, facility for aluminium foil production has been successfully certified against ASI’s Chain of Custody Standard. The same facility was also recently certified to the ASI Performance Standard.

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 Jiangsu Zhongji was carried out by DNV GL.

Fiona Solomon, Chief Executive Officer at ASI, said “Warm congratulations to Jiangsu Zhongji for achieving CoC Certification soon after their Performance Standard Certification last month.  The commitment of foil suppliers to ASI supports the focus on sustainability and responsible sourcing by downstream customers in the packaging sector and other foil-using sectors.”

Zhu Hongyu, general manager of Jiangsu Zhongji Company, said, “We are very happy to pass the ASI CoC Certification, and we are very grateful for the management of DNV and ASI that strongly supported us during the certification process. In the future, we will continue to support ASI.”
