Last week the Aluminium Stewardship Initiative welcomed California semi-fabricated specialty aluminium producer Kaiser Aluminum to the fold as its 166th Industrial User member.
Kaiser says that sustainability is a major ingredient for long-term excellence, and it strives to achieve success in a responsible manner. The firm says it plans to continue to find ways to improve efficiency and quality that are environmentally responsible not only for themselves, but also for their clientele
“Kaiser Aluminum Corporation is a leading North American producer of highly engineered aluminum mill products focused on demanding applications for aerospace, defense, packaging, automotive, and other industrial end markets,” commented Keith Harvey, Kaiser Aluminum’s president and CEO, in a related press release.
“The aluminum mill products we produce are part of the carbon solution facilitating light weighting and increased fuel efficiency in transportation and due to the infinite recyclability of aluminum, the material of choice for the beverage and food packaging industry. Each of our facilities comply with environmental standard ISO 14001 and joining ASI reflects our commitment as a strong and proactive member of the industry to foster improvement in sustainability and promote responsible and sustainable practices throughout the aluminum value chain.”
The ASI is a worldwide organization dedicated to setting industrial standards and certifications in the aluminium industry. The association attempts to bring 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.
