Kunshan Aluminium Co., Ltd. has achieved ASI Performance Standard Certification for its rolling facility in Kunshan City, Jiangsu Province. The facility’s operations include the development and production of ultra-wide and ultra-thin aluminium foil and non-ferrous metal composite materials.
Aluminium Stewardship Initiative (ASI) today announced that Kunshan Aluminium Co., Ltd. has been successfully certified against the ASI Performance Standard for its Kunshan City operations, which produces double-zero aluminium foil destined for diverse sectors including food, cigarettes, medicine, daily necessities, cosmetics and other high-end packaging foil and high-grade foil for the electronics industry.
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 Governance, Environment and Social, which address key issues such as biodiversity, Indigenous Peoples’ rights, and greenhouse gas emissions.
The independent, third-party audits of the Kunshan Aluminium Co., Ltd. facility was carried out by DNV GL.
Fiona Solomon, Chief Executive Officer at ASI said “We warmly congratulate Kunshan Aluminium Co., Ltd. on their ASI Performance Standard Certification. The broad range of downstream products for which the company’s foil is destined makes it a valuable point in the value chain to demonstrate responsible production practices.”
General manager of Kunshan Aluminum Co., Ltd. Yuan Bi Sheng said:”As a professional manufacturer of high-quality aluminum foil, we are pleased to be a member of ASI and are honored to be certified against the ASI Performance Standard. In the future, we will continue to work with ASI to further promote the responsible procurement and production of the global aluminum industry chain, and contribute to the application of aluminum foil and the sustainable development of the global aluminum industry chain.”
