Aluminium Stewardship Initiative announced that Constellium has been successfully certified against the Chain of Custody Standard for German extrusion plant Singen and two automotive structure production sites Gottmadingen and Dahenfeld which manufacture car components from extruded profiles. In addition to their use in automotive structures, extruded products are also destined for rail, electrical and mechanical engineering markets.
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 Constellium plant were carried out by GUTcert (AFNOR Group). The facilities were audited as a ‘desktop’ exercise, in accordance with the ASI Interim Policy regarding Audits, Audit-Related Travel and Coronavirus.
