力拓集团Rio Tinto在澳大利亚和加拿大的系列运营设施–包括铝土矿开采、氧化铝精炼、铝冶炼到熔铸已经成功地获得了ASI的首个铝监管链(CoC)标准认证。全球首个ASI 铝监管链标准认证的颁布,意味着ASI铝将进入市场,而此时距ASI这一自愿性标准倡议的正式启动仅间隔6个月。 ASI开发了监管链(CoC)标准认证,以对铝价值链中的相关企业提供支持,这些企业希望为其客户和利益相关方提供涉及铝的负责任生产和采购的独立保证。 ASI铝的追溯,是由认证企业在生产过程中采用质量平衡模型进行的。被认证的铝熔铸厂及其产品,是监管链中可以提供ASI铝的第一个节点,它为正在寻找负责任生产的铝材料的下游客户提供了一个新的选择。 首个ASI铝监管链标准认证,涵盖了力拓位于澳大利亚戈夫的铝土矿开采业务,以及位于加拿大魁北克省的特定原铝生产企业。ASI 监管链标准认证的一个先决条件是,生产设施也要符合ASI绩效标准的认证,而在2018年4月,力拓的上述设施,即首次成功地满足了ASI绩效标准对认证的要求。在澳大利亚和加拿大进行的独立第三方审核,是由魁北克标准局(BNQ)实施的。 ASI首席执行官Fiona Solomon表示:“ASI的总体目标,是通过其监管链标准刺激ASI铝的供应和需求,并使其贯穿全球铝价值链。通过实施ASI的创新性标准认证计划,包括绩效标准和监管链标准,生产企业现在能够为铝的负责任的生产、负责任采购和公司治理理提供独立的保证。 “我们对力拓表示赞赏,感谢他们作为创始成员加入ASI以来所做的努力,也祝贺他们成为首家获得ASI绩效标准和监管链标准认证的企业。”这一铝监管链标准的成功认证,显示了ASI自愿性认证项目能够营造影响的更大潜力。我们期待着力拓等上游企业带来的积极案例,能延伸到汽车、建筑和包装等下游用铝企业。 力拓铝业总裁Alf Barrios说:“获得这一认证,体现了力拓对最高国际生产标准的承诺,并为客户提升了服务终端用户的能力,能使终端用户相信他们的产品是负责任生产的。” “从食品包装到建筑、飞机、汽车、手机和电脑等多种终端产品,铝作为一种可选择的材料,可以在减少碳排放和增加循环利用方面发挥着关键的作用。” 作为ASI的创始成员,力拓与客户和广泛的利益相关方一起工作,引领铝业建立了负责任的生产认证。 力拓铝业销售和市场营销副总裁及ASI董事会成员Tolga Egrilmezer表示:“我们认为,生产认证的可持续铝是力拓差异化经营的重要一点,因为客户对确保可靠的铝生产越来越感关注。ASI认证,将使我们能够为力拓和我们的客户创造价值,因为我们相信,市场对这些铝产品的需求将发生根本性的转变。 访问摘要报告...

新闻发布 2018年6月7日 English media release 铝业管理倡议(ASI)首次对铝箔和包材生产商进行绩效标准认证  隶属于Constantia Flexibles软包集团的Constantia Teich工厂位于位于奥地利Weinburg,从事铝箔轧制和铝箔深加工转化。它成为第一家获得ASI认证的铝箔轧制和包装材料生产厂,以及第一家通过涉及环境、社会和企业治理的ASI绩效标准认证的欧洲企业。 Constantia Flexibles集团向许多跨国企业和本地市场领导者提供其包装产品,涵盖食品、宠物食品、药品和饮料行业等。 铝业管理倡议组织(ASI)宣布,这是其针对新的铝产品负责任生产、采购和管理的标准发布的第三个认证。 Constantia Teich工厂获得的ASI认证,充分证明了Constantia Flexibles的运行水平符合业界最高标准。 Constantia Teich是欧洲软包装行业规模最大的企业,2017年,其960人的团队生产了11亿平方米的铝箔和6.7万吨包装箔。 Constantia Flexibles集团还是ASI的创始成员之一。 ASI认证计划是通过广泛充分的商谈后程制定而成的,是铝价值链唯一在自愿基础上全面执行的可持续性标准。针对Constantia Teich的独立第三方审核由Bureau Veritas Austria完成。 ASI首席执行官Fiona Solomon表示:“在ASI认证计划启动仅短短5个月的时间内 Constantia Teich就获得了ASI认证,这是非常重要的一项成就,ASI在此向他们表示热烈祝贺。铝包装是铝制品使用的关键领域,每天数十亿消费者会和相关产品有直接接触。供应链的每个环节都可在推广ASI标准方面发挥作用。能够看到Constantia Teich成为第二家获得ASI认证的铝箔轧制行业,我们由衷感到高兴。“ Constantia Flexibles集团可持续发展副总裁Thomas Greigeritsch认为,整个铝价值链中的广泛合作,是建立一个负责任采购计划的关键。“我们和ASI的成功取决于所有不同参与者的支持。这才能确保已推出的认证标准会被广泛采用和实施。在2010年,我们几个人从一些共同的想法开始讨论,这些想法成为了如今铝业管理倡议ASI。今天,我们非常高兴实现了第一个目标,那就是获得了ASI绩效标准认证。 更重要的是,我们正努力在不久的将来实施监管链认证。 我想对所有相关人员以及整个ASI团队的付出及努力表示衷心的感谢。” 阅读Constantia Teich的审核报告 ASI认证流程 ASI的标准适用于整个铝供应链,从采矿到所有在产品中使用铝的中下游行业。 包括“生产及转化加工”和“工业用户”在内的所有ASI成员将在未来两年内完成ASI认证。ASI会员列表  https://aluminium-stewardship.org/about-asi/current-members/ ASI定制的在线认证平台铝元素elementAI支撑着ASI绩效标准和监管链标准的整个认证工作流程。首先,由elementAI构成的面向用户的界面和工作流程,为公司在最初阶段的自我评估提供了支持。同时,所有数据受安全防火墙保护。只需轻松点击,公司就可以将他们相关的elementAI的信息提供给他们选择的审核员。审核员使用在平台上帮助公司完成审核计划,并进行现场验证和撰写审核报告。在审核认证和证书颁发之前,作为最终审核监控方,ASI将审核提交的审核报告是否符合ASI的认证程序。完整的ASI认证有效期为三年,通常在约第18个月时进行一次监督审核。 关于ASI...
