Constellium SE (NYSE: CSTM) today announced its automotive structures operations in Gottmadingen and Dahenfeld, Germany, and its extrusion operations in Singen, Germany, have achieved certification according to the Aluminium Stewardship Initiative’s (“ASI”) Performance and Chain of Custody Standards.
Certification against both ASI standards means that these facilities have the capability, combined with the sourcing of ASI metal, to supply to their customers independently certified, responsibly sourced and sustainably manufactured aluminium extruded products and structural parts.
“We are very proud of this achievement. This certification responds to demand for sustainable solutions from our customers and from society,” said Philippe Hoffmann, President of Constellium’s Automotive Structures and Industry business unit. “This certification is in line with our ambitious sustainability strategy to expand our low-carbon offering and to improve the overall environmental and social footprint of the aluminium supply chain, while adding more value for our customers and our business.”
Fiona Solomon, Chief Executive Officer at ASI said, “We warmly congratulate Constellium on their Chain of Custody certification at these new three facilities. We’re pleased to see the company continuing to expand its ASI Certifications, following on from their dual-Certification of casting, rolling, finishing and recycling facilities in December 2020. This is a strong demonstration of Constellium’s commitment to supplying their range of customers with responsibly produced aluminium, and to addressing sustainability challenges more broadly.”
Constellium is an industry leader in the sustainable production and recycling of aluminium products, a metal that combines strength, light weight and endless recyclability. The company is dedicated to promoting the overall sustainability of the aluminium supply chain. Constellium continues to pursue ASI certification at other facilities and is also collaborating with its key suppliers to support their ASI certifications.
Constellium’s Gottmadingen, Dahenfeld and Singen facilities supply the automotive market with advanced structural components. With one of the largest extrusion presses in the world, Singen also serves the rail, electrical and mechanical engineering market with extruded products.
The Aluminium Stewardship Initiative (ASI) is a global, multi-stakeholder, non-profit standards setting and certification organization. It works toward responsible production, sourcing and stewardship of aluminium following an entire value chain approach. To this end, ASI launched its Performance Standard and Chain of Custody Standard in December 2017.
ASI’s 140+ members include leading civil society organizations, companies with activities in bauxite mining, alumina refining, aluminium smelting, semi-fabrication, product and component manufacturing, as well as consumer and commercial goods, including the automotive industry, construction and packaging, as well as industry associations and other supporters.
