SC Vimetco Extrusion Srl has achieved ASI Performance Standard V2 (2017) Certification for the manufacturing of extruded aluminium profiles and shapes at its facility at Slatina, Romania. The plant is equipped with three extrusion lines, with the facility capable of producing up to 35,000 tonnes annually.
Aluminium Stewardship Initiative (ASI) today announced that SC Vimetco Extrusion Srl has been certified against the ASI Performance Standard. The company produces extruded products and shapes for the building and construction, solar, automotive and transportation sectors, as well as broader industry applications.
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, labour rights, Indigenous Peoples rights, and greenhouse gas emissions.
The independent, third-party audit of the SC Vimetco Extrusion Srl 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 Vimetco Extrusion for achieving Performance Standard Certification at its facility in Slatina, Romania. The company’s extrusion production caters to sectors such as transportation and building and construction. These industries leverage the lightweight, strength, and conductive attributes of aluminium. ASI Certification further highlights the company’s dedication to sustainability”
– Fiona Solomon, Chief Executive Officer at ASI
“Obtaining ASI certification is not just a step forwards towards a greener approach; it’s our commitment to sustainability. We do it for our customers, our employees, and all stakeholders because we believe that together, we can build a future where responsible choices today lead to a better world tomorrow.”
– Mr. Igor Higer, General Director at SC Vimetco Extrusion Srl
