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
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
