Gränges’ Shanghai site achieves ASI certification

18 Jul 2019 | GROUP RELEASE

Gränges’ production facility in Shanghai, China, has successfully been certified against Aluminium Stewardship Initiative’s (ASI) Performance Standard. This was announced by ASI today, see link.

“Achieving this ASI certification is an important milestone in our sustainability commitment and ambitious sustainability agenda and it is a great recognition for our sustainability efforts. The certification verifies that our aluminium products are produced responsibly and sustainably and it is a first step towards being able to offer certified aluminium products to our customers. It also provides assurance to our customers and other stakeholders that we are committed to meet the increased sustainability requirements. We now intend to achieve certification for our other facilities, to promote responsible production and sourcing practices in the aluminium industry”, says Gränges’ CEO Johan Menckel.

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. The ASI Performance Standard defines environmental, social and governance principles and criteria, with the aim to address sustainability issues in the aluminium value chain. The independent, third-party audit of Gränges production facility in Shanghai was carried out by DNV GL.
