Symetal joins the Aluminium Stewardship Initiative (ASI)

Symetal announces its membership to the Aluminium Stewardship Initiative (ASI), aligning its efforts towards a responsible aluminium value chain along with 96 world-class companies, associations and organizations in the aluminium sector. 
 
The Aluminium Stewardship Initiative (ASI) is a global, multi-stakeholder, non-profit standards setting and certification organisation. It is the result of producers, users and stakeholders in the aluminium value chain coming together with a commitment to maximizing the contribution of aluminium to a sustainable society.
 
In this context, ASI’s objectives are:
  • To define globally applicable standards for sustainability performance and material chain-of-custody for the aluminium value chain
  • To promote measurable and continual improvements in the key environmental, social and governance impacts of aluminium production, use and recycling
  • To develop a credible assurance and certification system that both mitigates the risks of non-conformity with ASI standards and minimises barriers to broad scale implementation
  • To become and remain a globally valued organisation advancing programs for sustainability in the aluminium value chain, which is financially self-sustaining and inclusive of stakeholder interests.
 
Symetal has joined ASI as a Production & Transformation member. Through its participation, Symetal aims to certify its processes of responsible aluminum production and demonstrate its commitment to environmental protection, sustainable development and responsible corporate governance. 
 
Symetal’s statement regarding ASI membership:
“Sustainability is a continuous necessity for Symetal. We have placed the principles of Sustainable Development at the heart of our business model. Thus, we are delighted to be a part of the Aluminium Stewardship Initiative. By joining ASI, we further engage ourselves in an ongoing effort to promote a sustainable future.”
