The world is witnessing a sudden surge in the adoption of sustainable initiatives due to the impending effects of global warming and carbon emissions. Last week was a marvellous time for global standardisations as the Aluminium Stewardship Initiative presented certifications to various companies for meeting their performance standards in producing aluminium products. Ningbo Tuopu Group, Vimetco Extrusion, Constellium Muscle Shoals, and Befesa Aluminio have all received certification for their respective plants in China, Romania, Alabama, Kentucky, and Spain. The certifications cover various aspects of the production process, including casting, extrusion, recycling, and material conversion. There is a piece of great news for gadget freaks: Apple's new iPhone 15 lineup will feature a C-type charging port instead of the proprietary Lightning charger. The series is made from 75% recycled aluminium and other recycled materials, reflecting Apple's commitment to sustainability. The company aims to make every product carbon-neutral by 2030 and is focused on using clean electricity and low-carbon materials in production.
