Detail

The Aluminium Stewardship Initiative (ASI) is a global, multi-stakeholder, non-profit standards setting and certification organisation that aims to recognise and foster the responsible production, sourcing and stewardship of aluminium. ASI is the result of producers, users and stakeholders in the aluminium value chain coming together with a commitment to maximising the contribution of aluminium to a sustainable society. Fiona Solomon, CEO of the Aluminium Stewardship Initiative (ASI) gives an insight into the company's current projects and plans for 2019 in the below interview:  

AlCircle: Congratulations on launching the certification programme for aluminium value chain in 2018! Please brief us on the ASI certification programme. 

Fiona Solomon: Yes it’s an exciting time for ASI!  2018 was our first year of implementation of a global certification program for the aluminium value chain.  ASI’s Performance Standard covers a wide range of sustainability topics for companies involved in bauxite mining, alumina refining, aluminium smelting, re-melting and refining, semi-fabrication, material conversation and other kinds of manufacturing and downstream use sectors.  ASI’s Chain of Custody Standard then creates a way to connect this performance with the flow of metal.  The program involves accredited independent third-party auditors assessing conformance with applicable requirements in ASI’s Standards, and issuing of a public Certificate where successful.
