Trade group Aluminium Stewardship Initiative announced this week the certification of Yunnan Haoxin Aluminum Foil Co., Ltd.’s Yunnan Haoxin Aluminum Foil plant under its Chain of Custody Standard Certification for its aluminium re-melting, refining, and semi-fabrication activities.
The plant, which achieved Performance Standard Certification in August of last year, is located in Kunming, Yunnan Province. It boasts a nameplate capacity of 200 thousand metric tons of aluminium sheet and foil in several gauges. The plant primarily serves clients in the electronics, packaging, pharmaceutical, and HVAC sectors.
Fiona Solomon, Chief Executive Officer at ASI lauded Yunnan Haoxin for its achievement in a related press release.
“ASI warmly congratulates Yunnan Haoxin Aluminum Foil Co., Ltd. on achieving Chain of Custody Standard Certification for its aluminium foil rolling facility. ASI members are responding to a growing expectation from customers and stakeholders that the entire aluminium value chain becomes certified. Achieving ASI Chain of Custody certification in addition to their Performance Standard Certification is a demonstration that the company supports responsible practices and sourcing of aluminium in their upstream supply chain.”
ASI’s Performance Standard is the product of consultations with a multitude of stakeholders throughout the aluminium value chain, which ASI asserts is the sole comprehensive voluntary sustainability standard initiative in the aluminium sector. The certifications, which each last for three years, were audited by TÜV Rheinland Cert GmbH.
Chen Debin, Executive Director of Yunnan Haoxin Aluminum Foil Co., Ltd., expressed his firm’s excitement at its new certification from ASI.
“We are delighted to have successfully passed the ASI Chain of Custody Standard certification, which is an important achievement in our sustainable development plan. It will play a positive role in establishing the company’s image as a reliable and responsible enterprise for aluminium products and promoting win-win cooperation between the company and enterprises along the aluminium industry chain. We continually strive to be a global aluminium foil manufacturer with strong competitiveness.”
The ASI is a worldwide organization dedicated to setting industrial standards and certifications in the aluminium industry. The association brings together the various stakeholders in the aluminium industry in order to achieve objectives including sustainable production methods, material chain-of-custody procedures, recycling, social impacts related to aluminium production, and production standards.
