In the April edition of the ASI Newsletter:

  • Understanding ASI’s outcomes and impacts
    ASI Certification is not an end itself – ASI’s vision is to maximise the contribution of aluminium to a sustainable society. This will mean practices and performances in the value chain need to keep improving. How will we know whether ASI is helping to contribute to a better world?
  • LME Responsible Sourcing Consultation

A new round of market-wide consultation by LME, open until 30 June 2019, seeks feedback on their proposed rules for all LME-listed brands. LME will be presenting on its proposals at the ASI AGM Week in Norway in early June.
