Luoyang Wanji Aluminium Processing Co., Ltd. has achieved ASI Performance Standard certification for its rolling facility in Luoyang City, China. The facility’s main outputs include foils for use in a wide variety of sectors such as transportation, packaging, building supply, intermediate materials for home appliance, electronics, communications, pharmaceuticals, and printing among others.
Aluminium Stewardship Initiative (ASI) today announced that Luoyang Wanji Aluminium Processing Co., Ltd. has been successfully certified against the ASI Performance Standard for responsible production, sourcing and stewardship of aluminium. The facility’s main processes include rolling, straightening, trimming, annealing, slitting and packaging.
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 audit of the Luoyang Wanji Aluminium Processing Co., Ltd. facility was carried out by China Quality Mark Certification Group.
Fiona Solomon, Chief Executive Officer at ASI said, “ASI congratulates Luoyang Wanji Aluminium Processing Co., Ltd. on the Performance Standard certification of their rolling operations. The certification demonstrates the company’s engagement in applying sustainability principles to their production activities for aluminium foil, which is a key input to so many downstream applications. More generally, we are pleased to note that China-based ASI Members currently represent nearly a quarter of the 47 members certified against the ASI Performance Standard and more than a third of the 20 members certified against the Chain of Custody Standard, which shows that ASI’s engagement in China is gaining momentum.”
Jun Wu, General Manager of Luoyang Wanji Aluminium Processing Co., Ltd. said, “We are pleased to have been certified to the ASI Performance Standard and thank ASI for recognizing our work in the responsible aluminium supply chain. Obtaining ASI Performance Standard certification will provide more sustainable development for our aluminum products. It is also the only way for us to realize sustainable development. Through ASI, we are honoring our commitment to environmentally, socially and economically responsible production, we look forward to working with more ASI members to build a responsible and sustainable aluminum supply chain.
