External
Partnerships

We participate in numerous associations and initiatives aiming at improving industry sustainability in our different markets. Through these actions, we engage with our customers, suppliers, regulators, and NGOs. Stakeholder engagement also happens through regular one-to-one dialogue, particularly with customers and suppliers, whom we expect to share our values.

We take strict measures to ensure responsible sourcing. Our initiatives have earned us external recognition from various bodies, including EcoVadis.

Sourcing and Suppliers

At Constellium, sustainability does not simply mean establishing our own social, environmental, and ethical standards, but also ensuring that our values are reflected across the supply chain. Our responsible sourcing policy relies on commitment, assessment, and progress.

Our Supplier Code of Conduct

We only want to work with suppliers who are as serious about sustainability as we are. We have a dedicated Supplier Code of Conduct aligned with UNGC principles. It applies to Constellium’s suppliers, subsidiaries, consultants, contractors, and affiliates.

Assessment of our Suppliers

We are evaluating all our key suppliers with the EcoVadis assessment. We also conduct on-site audits of suppliers identified as carrying the most risk.

Progress

Evaluations and audits are not a tick-box exercise but translate into specific actions by our purchasing team.

ASI

The Aluminium Stewardship Initiative (ASI) is a global, multi-stakeholder, non-profit standards setting and certification organisation.  It is the result of producers, users and stakeholders in the aluminium value chain coming together with a commitment to maximising the contribution of aluminium to a sustainable society.

Through extensive stakeholder participation and consultation, ASI has designed Standards that provide a shared platform to address key issues and create B2B incentives for their implementation.

ASI’s new Certification program will cover all stages of the value chain for aluminium, including bauxite mining, alumina refining, aluminium smelting, semi-fabrication, product design and manufacturing, and recycling. The ASI’s Performance Standard covers critical issues for the entire aluminium value chain including greenhouse gas emissions, waste management, material stewardship, biodiversity and human rights.  ASI’s Chain of Custody (CoC) Standard links responsible production with responsible sourcing and thus increases the emphasis on sustainability issues in procurement.

Constellium, as a founding member of the ASI is committed to have at least one of its site certified and will continue to foster ASI certification among its metal suppliers. 

Conflict Minerals

Constellium complies with Section 1502 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, which requires certain publicly-traded companies to trace the origins of tin, tantalum, tungsten, and gold (3TG) used in their products. Our policy is to ensure that our products remain free of any conflict minerals, and we regularly update our conflict mineral disclosure form after due diligence investigations of our supply chain.
