Aluminium Stewardship Initiative announced that Trimet France has been successfully certified against ASI Performance Standard for responsible production, sourcing and stewardship of aluminium. The wire rods, slabs and ingots cast from primary aluminium at the Castelsarrasin and Saint-Jean-de-Maurienne plants primarily supply the energy, transport, construction, and packaging industries. The combined total annual production capacity of the plants is around 150,000 tonnes.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 (ESG), which address key issues like biodiversity, Indigenous Peoples rights, labour rights and safety, gender, and greenhouse gas emissions.The independent, third-party audit of the Trimet France facilities was carried out by Dekra Certification.
