In the September newsletter edition:

  • ASI membership hits 100!
    • With the addition of Greatview Aseptic Packaging as a new Industrial User member, we are delighted to announce that ASI membership has reached 100 members in September 2019. Since starting with only 13 members at incorporation in June 2015, ASI’s ongoing growth reflects a shared commitment to maximising the contribution of aluminium to a sustainable society.
  • New ASI Governance Handbook V2
    • ASI is committed to developing and implementing good governance practices on behalf of its multi-stakeholder membership. During 2019, ASI has been conducting a formal Governance Review, to identify opportunities for improvement and clarification in our processes. This month, the ASI Board approved a new version 2 of the ASI Governance Handbook.
