Constellium receives ASI certification for ethical credentials
Constellium has received the Aluminium Stewardship Initiative (ASI) Performance Standard certificate for its facilities in Muscle Shoals, Alabama, and Bowling Green, Kentucky.
The aluminium packaging manufacturer received the certification for commitment to sustainability in the aluminium supply chain. The certificate, verified by an independent third-party audit, means Constellium’s plants operate according to a strict set of governance, environmental, and social standards, including greenhouse gas emissions, biodiversity and labour rights.
Director of Environment and Sustainability at Constellium’s Muscle Shoals plant Fred Pearson said: “Receiving the ASI certification is an extraordinary achievement for our Muscle Shoals and Bowling Green facilities, and demonstrates our commitment to manufacture our products in a responsible and sustainable way.
“Our recycling capacity, coupled with this certification, is a step further to respond to the demands of our customers and society.”
Constellium’s Muscle Shoals plant is a major supplier of aluminium cansheet for the packaging market. The facility also produces aluminium automotive coils, which are processed at the Bowling Green plant. Muscle Shoals’ world-class recycling centre is able to recycle the equivalent of 20 billion aluminium cans per year. Constellium’s Bowling Green plant produces flat rolled aluminium Auto Body Sheet products for the automotive market, with a capacity to produce 100,000 metric tons annually.
Awarding body ASI recognised these credentials in awarding the certification.
Fiona Solomon, Chief Executive Officer at ASI said: “The company’s capacity to recycle the equivalent of 20 billion cans per year through its Element 13 facility underscores its key role in the circular economy of the region and beyond. Its ASI Performance Standard certification demonstrates that the company is committed to the responsible production of aluminium, and broader ESG outcomes.”
Constellium is dedicated to promoting the overall sustainability of the aluminium supply chain. Its facilities in Neuf-Brisach, Singen, Gottmadingen, and Dahenfeld are certified against the Performance and Chain of Custody Standards, and the company continues to pursue its ASI certification process.
