The Aluminium Stewardship Initiative (ASI) has successfully audited the RONAL GROUP with a focus on materials stewardship at its production site RONAL POLSKA Sp. z o.o. in Wałbrzych (Poland) and at the RONAL AG headquarters in Härkingen (Switzerland). These sites are now certified to the ASI Performance Standard; other plants will follow in the coming months. ASI Performance Standard certification focuses on “materials stewardship” and addresses topics such as product design, life cycle assessments, process waste management, end-of-life product collection and recycling.
We as the RONAL GROUP joined the ASI as a Downstream Supporter Member in 2018 and transitioned to an Industrial User in September 2020. We are proud to announce that we have now taken the next step of achieving Performance Standard Certification. Our success in achieving initial certification is a significant milestone in our sustainability strategy directed towards responsible production, procurement and handling of resources and raw materials. We support the goal of the ASI in promoting transparency and accountability in the sourcing and production of aluminum.
The ASI certification program is the only comprehensive voluntary initiative for recognition of responsible production, sourcing and use of aluminum in the aluminum value chain. The independent third-party audit of RONAL GROUP operations was conducted by TÜV Rheinland Cert GmbH.
We already source 100% of our aluminum from ASI members, of whom 90% are certified.
