The Aluminium Stewardship Initiative (ASI) is a global, multi-stakeholder, non-profit standards setting and certification organisation. It works towards responsible production, sourcing and stewardship of aluminium following an entire value chain approach. To this end, ASI launched its Certification program for the Performance Standard and Chain of Custody Standard in December 2017, and after a three-year revision process, published new versions of the Standards in May 2022.
ASI’s four priority sustainability issues focus its contribution to driving change in the aluminium value chain to 2030: climate change, circularity, nature positive and human rights. These high-level priority challenges for our global future are inter-connected and must be tackled together to support effective and just transitions that minimise unintended consequences and maximise positive impact.
