The first AMAG aluminum certified to the ASI International Chain of custody standards will be delivered to the famous car manufacturer Audi in Neckarsulm. Produced under strict sustainability standards, the material is used for the exterior leather of the A6 Avant’s tailgate. For AMAG, headquartered in Ranshofen, this order is not only related to the first sale of ASI-certified materials, but also represents the entry into the field of exterior leather supplier for this model series.
The ASI standard sets out the requirements for creating a responsible aluminum supply chain, according to AMAG. This relates to all steps of the value chain, from production from secondary bauxite or aluminum to processing in the foundry and in the rolling mill to the final product. “I am delighted that we can intensify our collaboration with Audi with sustainably produced AMAG aluminum. For years we have relied on resource-efficient production of recycled aluminium, which has been expanded through certification to ASI standards,” said the CEO of AMAG. Gerald Mayer.
The goal of the ASI initiative is responsible production and procurement of aluminum along the entire value chain. The ASI Performance Standard sets out principles and standards in the areas of environment, social affairs and corporate governance. Among other things, it defines the requirements for establishing a chain of due diligence for the materials that are manufactured and processed across the entire value chain in the various downstream sectors.
AMAG is a leading supplier of high quality cast and coil aluminum products that are used in a variety of industries such as the aircraft, automotive, sporting goods, lighting, mechanical engineering, construction and packaging industries.
