Aluminium Stewardship Initiative announced that Audi has been successfully certified against the ASI Chain of Custody Standard for its Neckarsulm and Ingolstadt facilities, where rolled material press operations create automotive body parts from aluminium sheet material.
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 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 independent, third-party audits of the Audi facilities was carried out by DNV GL.
