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 
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.
