Aluminium Stewardship Initiative (ASI) has announced that Henan Zhongfu High Precision Aluminium Products Co., Ltd. has been successfully certified against the ASI Performance Standard for responsible production, sourcing and stewardship of aluminium.
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 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.
The independent, third-party audit of the Henan Zhongfu High Precision Aluminium Products Co., Ltd. facility was carried out by SGS-CSTC Standards Technical Services.
Fiona Solomon, Chief Executive Officer at ASI said, “We warmly congratulate Henan Zhongfu High Precision Aluminium Products Co., Ltd. on achieving ASI Performance Standard certification for their remelting, casting and rolling operations.
