«Elval became a member of the international initiative ASI (Aluminium Stewardship Initiative), the standards setting and certification organization that unites leading aluminium companies towards sustainable growth and responsible aluminium production»
Elval announces its membership to the Aluminium Stewardship Initiative (ASI)
, aligning its efforts towards sustainable growth along with 85 companies in the aluminium sector, worldwide. ASI is a global, non-profit organization that sets standards for sustainable development and certifies production facilities throughout the entire aluminium supply chain.
Through its participation, Elval aims to certify its operational processes of responsible production and confirm its commitment to the principles of environmental protection, social responsibility and responsible corporate governance.
The ASI organization has been formed by companies and institutions from the entire aluminium value chain, namely Industry Associations, Civil Societies, Supporters, Final Industrial Users that manufacture aluminium-based products as well as aluminium Production and Transformation manufacturers from the entire supply chain range, from mining up to the manufacture of consumer products.
Nowadays, ASI issues two standards:
- The ASI Performance Standard that incorporates environmental, social and corporate governance criteria throughout the aluminium life cycle. The objective of this standard is to comply with a set of standards common to all stakeholders in the aluminium supply chain in order to ensure the sustainable development and the rational material stewardship.
- The ASI Chain of Custody Standard, offers the link between companies that have certified their operations against the ASI Performance Standard, ensuring that the material integrated in the supply chain, has been processed according to ASI’ principles of sustainable growth.
Elval started its certification process in the ASI Performance Standard, aiming with the highest priority to the immediate completion of the project. The certification audit to the ASI standards will be conducted by prestigious international Αccredited Auditing Firms.
