ASI Certifies Rio Tinto’s ISAL Smelter for Responsible Production
Rio Tinto's ISAL smelter in Iceland has been certified by the Aluminium Stewardship Initiative for meeting the highest internationally recognised standards for responsible aluminium production. The certification continues Rio Tinto’s leadership of the industry on responsible aluminium production from mine to metal, and means customers can be assured aluminium produced at ISAL meets independent environmental, social and governance standards.
ISAL has achieved ASI Performance Standard certification with provisional status, following an independent, third party ‘desk top’ audit by ERM CVS. An onsite audit will be completed when possible after the easing of COVID-19 travel restrictions.
Rio Tinto was the first company to offer ASI Aluminium in 2018. It has led the establishment of responsible production certification for the aluminium industry as a founding member of ASI, working alongside customers and a broad range of stakeholders.
