ASI’s Performance Standard recognizes the responsible production, sourcing and stewardship of aluminium.

“Many people have put a lot of work into this. I am very pleased. But we need to keep moving forward with ASI certification because we are seeing requirements that we didn’t see before,”  says executive vice president Egil Hogna, who leads Hydro’s Extruded Solutions business area.

“More customers want sustainable materials from certified suppliers.”
