Aluminium Stewardship Initiative has announced that AWB Aluminiumwerk Berlin has been certified against the ASI Performance Standard. The extrusion facility’s products are destined primarily for use in the building and construction sector. AWB Aluminiumwerk Berlin has achieved ASI Performance Standard V2 (2017) Certification for the production of aluminium extrusions and mechanical processing at its Berlin, Germany facility. The facility can process up to 22,000 tonnes of aluminium billets annually for its extrusion production. 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 Environment, Social, and Governance, which address key issues such as biodiversity, Indigenous Peoples rights, and greenhouse gas emissions. The independent, third-party audit of the AWB Aluminiumwerk Berlin GmbH operation was carried out by TÜV NORD CERT GmbH.
