Gränges is since January 2019 a new member of Aluminium Stewardship Initiative (ASI). ASI is a global, multi-stakeholder, non-profit standards setting and certification organisation which works to maximise the contribution of aluminium to a sustainable society. ASI defines global standards for sustainability performance and material chain-of-custody for the aluminium value chain. ASI also works to promote measurable and continual improvements in key environmental, social and governance dimensions and to implement a credible assurance and certification system.

“In all things we do, we have a strong focus on sustainability as an integrated part of our business. We strive to minimize the environmental impacts of our operations, uphold ethical business practices and provide a safe and good work environment. Our technical expertise in material properties and performance helps customers and the whole value chain to improve its sustainability performance. We support ASI’s commitment to promote greater sustainability and transparency in the aluminium value chain”, says Gränges’ CEO Johan Menckel.

As part of the membership, Gränges agrees to seek certification against the ASI Performance Standard for at least one facility or product line within two years of joining ASI.
