PARIS -- (Marketwire) -- 03/01/13 --  As a founding partner of the
Aluminium Stewardship Initiative (ASI), Constellium is  delighted to
welcome some of its key  customers Audi, BMW Group and Rexam as new
members. 
Paris-  1 March  2013 -  As  a  founding  partner  of  the Aluminium
Stewardship
Initiative  (ASI), Constellium is delighted to welcome
some of its key customers
AUDI, BMW Group and Rexam as new members. 
As  part of its active sustainable development strategy, Constellium
has engaged
into  a holistic approach in this domain  and has strongly
contributed to create
the Aluminium Stewardship Initiative that was
launched in September 2012. 
The  Aluminium Stewardship Initiative is a  unique aluminium value
chain program
that   will   define  and  deliver  the  first  global 
standard  for aluminium
sustainability.   Under the  coordination of 
the IUCN  (International Union for Conservation of Nature), it was
initiated by leading players on their respective
markets:
AMAG/Constancia Flexibles, Amcor Flexibles, Constellium, Nespresso,
Rio Tinto Alcan and Tetra Pak. 
The  ASI Standard will define environmental, social and governance
criteria that
can be applied to all stages of aluminium production and
transformation. It will
also  consider how  recycling and  material
recovery  from products that contain
aluminium  can contribute to
improving the metal's efficiency and minimising its environmental 
and social  footprint. The  ASI Standard  will be  supported by a
Chain of Custody system, which will aim to assure the provenance of
aluminium. 
"Sustainability is becoming more and more a driver of decisions in
our industry,
in  particular  in  the  fields  of  customer requests,
economic balance, public
affairs  and internal and external
communications.  It is becoming a "licence to operate"",  stated
Laurent  Musy, Chairman  of the  Constellium's
Sustainability
Council.  "Our first priority  was to expand  the
initial group  of founders and invite  new industry  players. We  are
happy  that new prominent companies among
which  some key customers
of Constellium have  responded and are now joining and we encourage
more of our customers to join. 
Constellium is already deeply committed to environmental protection
and resource
preservation.  Thanks to unique advanced  recycling
capabilities, the company is acting  through  many  initiatives  with
 business  partners  in  the packaging,
automotive or aerospace
markets.
