Aluminium Stewardship Initiative certifies REAL ALLOY plant and European Headquarters against ASI Performance Standard.
REAL ALLOY has achieved ASI Performance Standard certification for the recycling of aluminium scrap and production of recycled Aluminium alloys at its Deizisau, Germany plant, as well as at its European Headquarters in Grevenbroich, Germany. The plant produces alloys to specification by converting aluminium scrap into liquid metal which is delivered directly to customers´ foundries.
Aluminium Stewardship Initiative (ASI) today announced that REAL ALLOY has been successfully certified against the ASI Performance Standard for responsible production, sourcing and stewardship of aluminium at its plant in Deizisau and European Headquarters in Grevenbroich, both in Germany. The plant delivers specified recycled aluminium alloys directly as molten metal to a range of customers, primarily from the automotive industry sector.
The ASI Certification program was developed through an extensive multi-stakeholder consultation process and is the only comprehensive voluntary sustainability standard initiative for the aluminium value chain. The ASI Performance Standard defines environmental, social and governance principles and criteria, with the aim to address sustainability issues in the aluminium value chain. It sets out 59 criteria under the three sustainability pillars of Governance, Environment and Social, which address key issues such as biodiversity, Indigenous Peoples rights, and greenhouse gas emissions.
The independent, third-party audit of the REAL ALLOY plant and European Headquarters was carried out by TÜV Rheinland Cert GmbH.
Fiona Solomon, Chief Executive Officer at ASI said, “We warmly congratulate REAL ALLOY on their ASI Performance Standard certification. The REAL ALLOY plant’s furnaces enable it to recycle a wide range of scrap and makes it a valuable link in the circular economy bringing aluminium back into productive use. Achieving ASI Certification gives their customers the assurance that the plant’s production processes meet industry-leading sustainability criteria.”
Russell Barr, Executive Vice President and Managing Director, Europe said, “We are proud to have achieved this first certification according to the ASI Performance Standard, especially since it includes not only our Deizisau site but also the central functions, policies and processes administered by our European HQ. Since we joined ASI it has become more and more important for us to understand and properly manage our sustainability footprint. Preparing for and going through the audit was both challenging and inspiring. And we see it as another successful step on our to-be-continued sustainability journey.”
