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.
