The ASI’s objects are:
- To define globally applicable standards for sustainability performance and material chain-of-custody for the aluminium value chain
- To promote measurable and continual improvements in the key environmental, social and governance impacts of aluminium production, use and recycling
- To develop a credible assurance and certification system that both mitigates the risks of non-conformity with ASI standards and minimises barriers to broad scale implementation
Aluminium production is set to increase with the mineral demands of green economy technologies, making it more important than ever to improve practices and define and implement effective certification programs.
