Sustainability AMAG Receives ASI Certification for Comprehensive Sustainability Activities
AMAG’s strategic focus is on special products and sustainability. The confirmation of compliance with comprehensive sustainability standards by independent third-party institutions plays a crucial role for the assurance of transparency and quality.
Since the certification of the Ranshofen plant against the ASI Performance Standard in 2018, AMAG guarantees the compliance with strict environmental, social and governance criteria. With the recently completed certification against the ASI Chain of Custody Standard (CoC) AMAG takes its sustainability activities up to another level by extending its efforts beyond the confines of the Ranshofen site. AMAG supports the application of the same strict standards and criteria to which the company has submitted itself voluntarily among its pre-material suppliers. With the involvement of the whole supply chain, from the mining of Bauxite to the AMAG product, AMAG is now ready to offer ASI certified aluminum to its customers.
„AMAG has already been focusing on responsible and resource-conserving production of aluminum for many years. Particularly, our competence in recycling is acknowledged throughout the world. The ASI Chain of Custody Certification enables us to expand our range of specialties by adding sustainably sourced products. Even before the official launch of sales, ASI certified aluminum stirred up great interest amongst customers of the automotive and packaging industries”, says AMAG CEO Gerald Mayer.
Fiona Solomon, Chief Executive Officer at ASI said, “We warmly congratulate AMAG on their ASI Chain of Custody Certification. Having a scrap utilization rate of 75-80 % already gives the plant a good foundation for offering a relatively low-carbon product to their downstream customers and supports the circular economy. With their dual certification now in place, this gives their aluminum outputs additional sustainability credentials that will add important value to the key downstream sectors that they supply.”
