Kaiser’s aluminium rolling mill gets provisional ASI certification

Kaiser Aluminium

Kaiser Aluminum Corporation announced that its rolling mill near Evansville, Indiana (the Warrick facility) has received the Performance Standard Certification with provisional status from Aluminum Stewardship Initiative.

It received the certification for its ingot casting centres, rolling mills and finishing production centres. 

The Warrick facility is one of only four dedicated rolling mills in North America for the packaging industry and is the first facility of its type in this market to achieve ASI Performance Standard certification for responsible sourcing and stewardship of aluminium.

“This is a very important milestone for our Warrick facility and for our customers, as we continue to support the growing sustainability trends and secular shift to aluminum in the beverage and food packaging industry,” said Keith A. Harvey, President and Chief Executive Officer. 

“At Kaiser Aluminum, we recognise that long-term excellence requires sustainable practices. Achieving the ASI certification reflects our commitment as a strong and proactive member of the industry to foster improvement in sustainability and promote responsible and sustainable practices throughout the aluminum value chain.”

The Performance Standard Certification with Provisional status was issued under the ASI Interim Policy regarding Audits, Audit-Related Travel and Coronavirus, which clarifies the reasonable accommodations that can be made to audit plans in consideration of the current situation relating to COVID-19.
