The Aluminium Stewardship Initiative (ASI) is a global non-profit standards setting and certification organisation.
ASI’s objectives are to:
- To define globally applicable standards for sustainability performance and material chain-of-custody for the aluminium
- To promote measurable and continual improvements in the key environmental, social and governance impacts of aluminium production, use and recycling
- To develop a credible assurance and certification system that both mitigates the risks of non-conformity with ASI standards and minimises barriers to broad scale implementation
There are two main standards from The Aluminium Stewardship Initiative (ASI)
ASI’s Performance Standard: covers critical issues for the entire aluminium value chain, including greenhouse gas emissions, waste management,material stewardship, biodiversity and human rights
ASI’s Chain of Custody (CoC) Standard links responsible production with responsible sourcing and increases the emphasis on sustainability issues in procurement practices. The primary purpose of the CoC Standard is to drive implementation of the performance requirements defined in the ASI Performance Standard.
