Golden Aluminum achieves ASI certification
Golden Aluminum has achieved ASI Performance Standard V2 (2017) Certification at its Fort Lupton, Colorado rolling facility.
The rolled products manufactured at the facility are used in downstream packaging, automotive, building and construction, and electronics sectors.
The ASI Certification program was developed through an extensive multi-stakeholder consultation process and is the only comprehensive voluntary sustainability standard initiative for the aluminium value chain.
The ASI Performance Standard (2017) defines environmental, social and governance principles and criteria, with the aim to address sustainability issues in the aluminium value chain. It sets out 59 criteria under the three sustainability pillars of Governance, Environment and Social, which address key issues such as biodiversity, Indigenous Peoples rights, and greenhouse gas emissions. ASI launched a revised Performance Standard in 2022.
The independent, third-party audit of the Golden Aluminum plant was carried out by Bureau Veritas Certification.
Fiona Solomon, Chief Executive Officer at ASI, said: “We sincerely congratulate Golden Aluminum on achieving ASI Performance Standard Certification. The company has a long history of leveraging aluminium’s excellent recyclability properties to make new aluminium sheet from used beverage cans.
“Golden Aluminum has successfully built on this circular approach with a broader commitment to ESG issues, as demonstrated by its ASI Certification.”
Jeff Frim, Chief Executive Officer at Golden Aluminum, said: “Golden Aluminum was founded with a sustainability mindset, focused on recycling and continuous casting to minimise the environmental impact of producing flat-rolled aluminium sheet products.
“We are very proud to join the other esteemed companies that have successfully achieved ASI Performance Standard Certification.
“Being a member of the Aluminum Stewardship Initiative and achieving ASI Performance Standard Certification is a meaningful milestone and assists us in continuing our legacy of sustainability and overall sound ESG practices, doing our part to contribute to a better world.”
