Cervejaria Masterpiece achieves ASI certification
Cervejaria Masterpiece has achieved ASI Performance Standard V3 (2022) with Provisional status and Chain of Custody (CoC) Standard V2 (2022) Certification for the manufacture of aluminium beverage cans at its facility in Niterói, Brazil.
The company operates a microbrewery producing a range of specialty beers packaged in aluminium cans and sold locally and internationally.
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 V3 and ASI CoC Standard V2 were launched in May 2022 following a multi-year revision process.
The ASI Performance Standard defines 11 principles and 62 criteria under three sustainability pillars – Environment, Social, and Governance – with the aim to address pressing sustainability issues in the aluminium value chain, such as biodiversity, Indigenous Peoples rights, circularity, and greenhouse gas emissions. The ASI CoC Standard sets out requirements for the creation of a Chain of Custody for material that is produced and processed through the value chain into diverse downstream sectors. The implementation of ASI’s CoC Standard links verified practices at successive steps of the supply chain – certified under the ASI Performance Standard – to the products produced by ASI Certified Entities.
The CoC Standard also confirms that appropriate policies and due diligence process are in place to identify and address critical issues, such as corruption, human rights abuses, materials originating from conflict-affected and high-risk areas in the supply chain and support responsible sourcing.
André Valle, Masterpiece CEO, said: “We recognise the profound impact our industry has on the environment. Our commitment to sustainability is epitomised by our achievement of the Aluminium Stewardship Initiative certification.
This certification underscores our dedication to responsible sourcing, ethical practices, and environmental stewardship.
We believe in brewing excellence with a conscience, and this certification is a testament to our relentless pursuit of a more sustainable and eco-friendly brewing industry.”
