The Aluminium Stewardship Initiative (ASI) announced last week the joining of Nothing to its association as a Downstream Supporter member.
Based in London, England, Nothing is a tech company whose purpose is to remove barriers between technology and the people who use it. They are committed to ushering in the change needed in the industry of creating sustainable products.
The company’s credo is straightforward, notes ASI: “Take nothing from the earth to make our product, and leave nothing behind when it’s replaced.”
Tong Wu, Head of Sustainability at Nothing, said in a press release that joining ASI is a major milestone for the company.
“Joining the Aluminium Stewardship Initiative is a critical step towards responsible aluminium sourcing and improving the sustainability performance of our products.”
To date, Nothing has gone to 100 percent recycled aluminium for its phone. The firm says its activity with the ASI will aid it in bringing meaningful and sustainable change in the industry.
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.
