The newly-issued certification is for the manufacture of aluminium and aluminium alloy foils. The plant, which is located in Shanghai, was previously certified under the ASI Performance Standard almost a year ago.
The Aluminium Stewardship Initiative (ASI) announced the certification of a Shanghai Shenhuo Aluminium Foil Co., Ltd aluminium foil production plant under the ASI Chain of Custody Standard.
ASI’s Performance Standard is the product of consultations with a multitude of stakeholders throughout the aluminium value chain, which ASI asserts is the sole comprehensive voluntary sustainability standard initiative in the aluminium sector. The certifications, which each last for three years, were audited by DNV GL of Norway.
The ASI is a worldwide organization dedicated to setting industrial standards and certifications in the aluminium industry. The association attempts to bring together the various stakeholders in the aluminium industry in order to achieve objectives including sustainable production methods, material chain-of-custody procedures, recycling, social impacts related to aluminium production, and production standards.
