On June 25, 2015, Aluminium Stewardship Initiative was incorporated as a not-for-profit entity to develop and launch the ASI certification program. Between 8 and 12 September, ASI join our Members and stakeholders in celebrating our first five years as a multi-stakeholder standards body and the accomplishments we have achieved together!

In 2009, a global group of stakeholders from the aluminium industry, civil society, research and policy organisations, and industrial users of aluminium products started the ball rolling on what would become ASI by joining together to assess challenges, opportunities and needs. In March 2015, ASI appointed its first Executive Director, and in June 2015 the Aluminium Stewardship Initiative Ltd was incorporated as a non-profit entity for the purposes of developing an independent, third-party certification program.

Since our incorporation in 2015, we have been collecting data to capture the outcomes of our work. We do this through our members at the time of their application, during the certification process, annual surveys and case studies, as well as from our learning program educationAl. As more companies join ASI, we will collect more in-depth data and evidence to fully understand the change to which ASI and its Members are contributing.

Since the launch of the ASI Standards, we have been collecting anecdotal evidence and feedback from ASI Members as to how their implementation of the ASI Standards and process of certification has created change in their activities and real impact on the ground. This evidence is continuously being assessed, refined and expanded through on-site investigation and interviews. The results are used to create the Stories of Change

ASI’s standards are applicable to all stages of aluminium production and transformation, specifically: bauxite mining, alumina refining, primary aluminium production, semi-fabrication (rolling, extrusion, forging and foundry), material conversion, and refining and re-melting of recycled scrap, as well as material stewardship criteria relevant to downstream users of aluminium. The links below provide more details on the current certifications.
