ASI Certifies Slim Aluminium SpA in Italy
Aluminium Stewardship Initiative announced that Slim Aluminium S.p.A. has been successfully certified against the ASI Performance Standard for responsible production, sourcing and stewardship of aluminium at the Cisterna di Latina plant in Italy. The facility is vertically integrated, with casthouse, rolling mills and finishing lines, and manufactures flat rolled aluminium products with a gauge range of 6 µm to 6 mm in soft as well as hard alloys.
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 Slim Aluminium S.p.A. plant was carried out by Bureau Veritas Certification.
