Yunnan YunLv Yongxin Aluminium Co., Ltd. has achieved ASI Chain of Custody Standard V1 (2017) Certification at its aluminium smelting and casting operations in the Yangjie Industrial Park, Yunnan Province, China. The facility achieved Performance Standard Certification in September 2021.

Aluminium Stewardship Initiative (ASI) today announced that Yunnan YunLv Yongxin Aluminium Co., Ltd., part of the Chinalco Group and controlled by ASI Member Yunnan Aluminum Co., Ltd., has been certified against the ASI Chain of Custody Standard. The facility has an annual production capacity of 300,000 tonnes of primary aluminium based on hydro power. The main products include electrolytic aluminium liquid, remelting aluminium ingot, casting aluminium alloy, and aluminium bar.

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 Yunnan YunLv Yongxin Aluminium Co., Ltd. operation was carried out by SGS-CSTC Standards Technical Services.

“We congratulate Yunnan YunLv Yongxin Aluminium Co., Ltd. on achieving ASI Chain of Custody Certification for their smelting operation at the Yangjie Industrial Park. We are pleased to see this facility also achieve Chain of Custody Certification, following the dual ASI Certification of the company’s joint-venture, Yunnan Yongshun in 2021.  This enables Yunnan YunLv Yongxin Aluminium to respond to customer expectations for both responsible production and sourcing of aluminium.”

– Fiona Solomon, Chief Executive Officer at ASI

“I am glad that Yunlv Yongxin has successfully passed the ASI Chain of Custody (CoC) Standard Certification. This is ASI’s recognition and affirmation of our company’s adherence to the path of green and low-carbon development. The company always adheres to the concept of green and sustainable development, implementing green manufacturing from the whole process of procurement, production and sales, actively performing social responsibilities, strives to achieve win-win results among enterprises, environment and society, becoming the leader of green development in the industry, making green development to be the company’s core competitiveness, and continuously improves the brand influence of ‘green aluminum in Yunnan Aluminum’ to achieve carbon peak and contribute to carbon neutralization goals.”
