The Aluminium Stewardship Initiative (ASI) announced yesterday the certification of two of Eurofoil’s plants against the organization’s Performance Standard and Chain of Custody Standard. The twin plants produce aluminium foil for packaging, container foil, household foil, and aluminium wrap for a variety of industrial applications.
Eurofoil’s two certified plants are rolling mills in Rugles, France and Dudelange, Luxembourg. The mills serve customers in a variety of industrial sectors, including packaging, automotive, and construction.
The plants were each audited by independent third-party auditors DNV GL.
“We warmly congratulate Eurofoil on their dual ASI Certifications,” said ASI’s CEO Fiona Solomon.
“Packaging sector companies continue to achieve ASI Certification in order to be able to offer aluminium foil products that are produced responsibly and support the growing sustainability focus from downstream use sectors. Aluminium foil-based packaging often ends up in the hands of the end consumer, including in its simplest form as household foil, and ASI Certifications can help extend broader awareness of aluminium’s sustainability credentials.”
“Eurofoil companies intend to become a world-class manufacturer of aluminium foil and we are committed to applying the highest standards applicable to our business activities,” noted Yann Sauvage, Quality System Manager at Eurofoil.
“As a manufacturer of high-quality aluminium foil, we are pleased to participate in ASI as an active member, because we thoroughly believe ourselves about the overall benefits of ASI’s program. We’re proud that ASI Performance Standard and Chain of Custody certifications have been granted to us and we will continue to follow the relevant ASI guidelines to improve our global management system. All environmental, social and governance values are a part of our business strategy in order to offer to our customers aluminium products that are sourced and produced responsibly along the entire 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.
