The Aluminium Stewardship Initiative (ASI) is working towards greater sustainability and transparency in the aluminium industry by addressing the environmental, social and governance aspects of the entire aluminium value chain. The initiative, which was launched in 2012, is a result of a multi-stakeholder engagement that started in 2009. ASI has developed a global standard for a sustainable resource management across the entire aluminium value chain, and a third party certification system was launched in December 2017.
Hydro is participating with other companies and stakeholders from the aluminium value chain in developing the ASI standard. Financial contributions are given as ordinary membership fees.
