Novelis Inc. has achieved ASI Chain of Custody (CoC) Standard V2 (2022) Certification at its Novelis Aluminum (Zhenjiang) Co., Ltd rolling facility in the Jingkou Industrial Zone, Jiangsu Province, China. The facility achieved ASI Performance Standard V2 Certification in August 2022.
Aluminium Stewardship Initiative (ASI) today announced that Novelis Inc. has been successfully certified against the ASI CoC Standard V2 (2022) for the production of rolled aluminium products including high-strength structural plate products for aerospace and commercial plate applications.
The ASI CoC Standard V2 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 CoC Standard also confirms that appropriate policies and due diligence process are in place to identify and address critical issues, such as corruption, human rights abuses, materials originating from conflict-affected and high-risk areas in the supply chain and support responsible sourcing.
The independent, third-party audit of the Novelis Aluminum (Zhenjiang) Co., Ltd. facility was carried out by DNV Business Assurance Services UK Ltd.
“We congratulate Novelis on achieving certification against the new ASI CoC Standard V2 at its Novelis Aluminum (Zhenjiang) Co., Ltd. rolling facility. Aerospace manufacturers require lightweight materials without compromising strength or structural integrity. They are also increasingly prioritising sustainable and ethically sourced materials, seeking partners who align with their values. By achieving ASI Chain of Custody Certification, now at all its manufacturing sites in Asia, Novelis demonstrates its commitment to responsible sourcing and production, providing customers with the assurance that their aluminum products adhere to rigorous sustainability standards.”
