The Aluminium Stewardship Initiative (ASI) is a standards setting and certification organisation that recognises and fosters the responsible production, sourcing and stewardship of aluminium. As a member-based, global initiative, ASI is the result of producers, users and stakeholders in the aluminium value chain coming together to build consensus on ‘responsible aluminium’.
Elval fully committed to the principles of sustainable growth, joined ASI on April 2019 and on July 2020 became a Certified Production & Transformation member. Through its participation, Elval certified its operational processes of responsible aluminium production and confirmed its commitment to the principles of environmental protection, social responsibility and responsible corporate governance.
In 2021, Elval became the first Greek aluminium manufacturer to certify its production facilities against the ASI Chain of Custody Standard (CoC). The ASI Chain of Custody Standard, complements the ASI Performance Standard, and sets out requirements for sourcing and production of ASI-certified aluminium in the entire aluminium value chain. The ASI CoC certification allows Elval to offer its customers ASI-certified aluminium products, ensuring that they originate from material that has been sourced and processed responsibly, in conformance with the criteria set out by the ASI standards, in every stage of their manufacturing process. The ASI CoC certification, confirms Elval’s commitment to responsible production and development.
