Novelis aluminium facilities ASI certified
Novelis Inc announced that its European aluminium manufacturing facilities serving all automotive and beverage can customers have been awarded the Performance Standard and Chain of Custody Certification by the Aluminium Stewardship Initiative (ASI).
This follows the ASI certifications Novelis announced last year for its plant in Ohle, Germany and its joint venture Alunorf.
The recent certification of Novelis’ seven European plants in Sierre, Switzerland; Göttingen, Nachterstedt Recycling, Nachterstedt Rolling, Germany; Latchford, UK; Pieve and Bresso, Italy strengthen the company’s ability to meet the increasing needs of its customers for independently certified, sustainable aluminium.
In addition, ASI certifications underline Novelis’ ambition to be the world’s leading provider of low-carbon, sustainable aluminium solutions while reducing its carbon footprint 30 percent by 2026 and being net carbon neutral by 2050, or sooner.
“Receiving ASI certifications for both the Performance Standard and the Chain of Custody
for seven further sites represents an important next step in Novelis’ long-standing commitment to sustainability, transparent reporting and customer-focused achievement,” said Emilio Braghi, Senior Vice President & President Novelis Europe.
“This achievement demonstrates to our customers that we are committed to delivering ASI Aluminium and shows our commitment to realizing a more sustainable future.”
The ASI Performance Standard defines environmental, social and governance principles and criteria with the aim to address sustainability issues in the aluminium value chain.
The ASI Chain of Custody Standard complements the ASI Performance Standard, certifying not only the plants and their practices but also the physical metal that is produced and processed through the value chain.
Certification by both ASI standards means that Novelis will be able to supply independently certified sustainable aluminium products to its customers.
