Ningbo Tuopu Group Co., Ltd. has achieved ASI Performance Standard V2 (2017) Certification with Provisional status for its Light Alloy System 9th Unit, located in Ningbo, China. The facility’s processes include casting, semi-processing, aluminium remelting/refining, and material conversion.
Aluminium Stewardship Initiative (ASI) today announced that Ningbo Tuopu Group Co., Ltd. has been certified against the ASI Performance Standard with Provisional status. The company is engaged in the research, development, and manufacturing of power chassis systems, trim systems, and intelligent driving control systems for the automotive 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 V2 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, Indigenous Peoples rights, and greenhouse gas emissions. A certification with Provisional status provides a one-year certification period during which corrective actions can be undertaken, enabling the company to then achieve Full certification at its next surveillance audit.
The independent, third-party audit of the Ningbo Tuopu Group Co., Ltd. operation was carried out by TÜV Rheinland Cert GmbH. The audit took place prior to May 31, 2023, thus enabling a Performance Standard V2 certification.
“We congratulate Ningbo Tuopu Group Co., Ltd. on achieving ASI Performance Standard Certification with Provisional status. Adopting sustainability is an ongoing journey that entails consistently assessing and enacting change. ASI Certification enables companies to appraise their manufacturing methods through the lens of an ESG standard and provides a path forward for progress on the ground”
– Fiona Solomon, Chief Executive Officer at ASI
