Novelis Aluminum (Zhenjiang) Co., Ltd. has achieved ASI Performance Standard V2 (2017) Certification at its rolling facility in the Jingkou Industrial Zone, Jiangsu Province, China. The plant produces high-strength structural plate products for aerospace and commercial plate applications.
Aluminium Stewardship Initiative (ASI) today announced that Novelis has been successfully certified against the ASI Performance Standard at its Zhenjiang production facility in China. It is the second Novelis facility in China to receive Performance Standard Certification and its 19th certified facility globally.
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 Novelis’ Zhenjiang plant was carried out by DNV Business Assurance Services UK Ltd.
“We sincerely congratulate Novelis on achieving Performance Standard Certification at its Zhenjiang rolling facility. Aluminium applications for the Aerospace sector must meet stringent operational performance requirements for strength, ductility, damage tolerance, and fatigue, among others. This ASI Performance Standard Certification demonstrates the company is also addressing the increasing global focus on the environmental, social and governance performance of aluminium production processes and operations.”
– Fiona Solomon, Chief Executive Officer at ASI
“We are delighted that Novelis’ Zhenjiang plant is now certified to meet ASI’s environmental, social and governance standards. Driven by our purpose of Shaping a Sustainable World Together, we continuously dedicate ourselves to being the most trusted partner for our customers and to advancing the use of low-carbon, sustainable aluminum solutions to accelerate the transition to a circular economy in partnership with various stakeholders in China.”
