Shangqiu Yangguang Aluminium Product Co., Ltd. has achieved ASI Chain of Custody Standard certification for aluminium casting, cold rolling, annealing and packing operations and related management activities. The company achieved ASI Performance Standard certification in January 2021 at its plant in Shangqiu City, Henan Province, China.
Aluminium Stewardship Initiative (ASI) today announced that Shangqiu Yangguang Aluminium Product Co., Ltd. has been successfully certified against the ASI Chain of Custody Standard. The company’s main products include aluminium and aluminium alloy plate, sheet and strip.
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 CoC Standard 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 independent, third-party audit of the Shangqiu Yangguang Aluminium Product Co., Ltd. plant was carried out by DNV Business Assurance Services UK Ltd.
Fiona Solomon, Chief Executive Officer at ASI said, “We warmly congratulate Shangqiu Yangguang Aluminium Product Co., Ltd. on achieving this Chain of Custody Standard Certification. ASI Members are responding to the growing demand by downstream aluminium users that wish to source ASI Aluminium for their products, and Chain of Custody Certification is a key milestone in meeting that demand.“
Mr. Pan Junpeng, General Manager of Shangqiu Yangguang Aluminium Product Co., Ltd. said, “We are pleased to get the Chain of Custody Standard certification of the Aluminium Stewardship Initiative. The certification of the Chain of Custody Standard is a further recognition and affirmation of our company’s green and sustainable development work. It will play a positive role in establishing a reliable and responsible aluminium product, corporate image, and promote win-win cooperation between the company and the upstream and downstream well-known large aluminium enterprises.”
