Hydro’s aluminium extrusion plant in Denmark is now certified according to the Aluminium Stewardship Initiative Performance Standard and Aluminium Stewardship Initiative Chain of Custody Standard. Aluminium Stewardship Initiative aims to see sustainability and human rights principles increasingly embedded in supply chains. The certification of the Tonder plant covers the site’s production of aluminium solutions, including extrusion and fabrication activities, as well as surface treatment.
The Aluminium Stewardship Initiative’s Performance Standard recognizes the responsible production, sourcing and stewardship of aluminium. The Chain of Custody Standard sets out requirements for the creation of a chain of custody for CoC material, including ASI Aluminium, which is produced and processed through the value chain into the downstream sectors. It means not only that the sites and their practices are certified, but that the physical metal they process also is certified, when obtained from ASI-certified sources.
Hydro Extrusion Denmark develops and produces more than 25,000 tons of aluminium profiles annually with two extrusion lines. The plant also has an in-house fabrication line and offers surface treatment capabilities to its customers, who are located mainly in Denmark and Germany. In 2020, the company added Hydro CIRCAL and Hydro REDUXA to its customer offering. These low-carbon aluminium products help to enable customers to reach their respective sustainability goals and meet the demands of climate-conscious consumers.
