    Jupiter Aluminum Corporation has become the first facility in the United States to achieve Aluminium Stewardship Initiative (ASI) Performance Certification. The company’s Hammond, Indiana, USA facility has received Certification demonstrating its commitment to environmental, social and governance performance.

    The facility melts scrap aluminium to produce common alloy coils for North American markets.

    The ASI Certification program is the only comprehensive voluntary sustainability standard initiative for the aluminium value chain. The independent, third-party audit of the Jupiter Aluminum facility was carried out by DNV GL.

    Fiona Solomon, Chief Executive Officer of ASI said: “We are delighted to congratulate Jupiter Aluminum Corporation on their ASI Certification, the first to be achieved in the USA. Their passion and commitment to sustainability as a recycler is testament to the importance of a circular economy approach for aluminium. We are very proud to have them as ASI members and see them achieve the first US-based ASI Certification.”

    Paul-Henri Chevalier, CEO of Jupiter Aluminum said: “We are very honoured to be the first facility in the United States to achieve certification to the ASI Performance Standard. The purpose of our business, recycling aluminium, is based on our philosophy that waste can be dramatically reduced when scrap is recycled to be re-used under new applications.”

    “We are proud of the fact that a comprehensive external audit of our business operations has acknowledged and confirmed our longstanding efforts in responsible aluminium production. This ASI certification means a lot to every Jupiter Aluminium employee as its principles and ambitions have been anchored in the company’s DNA since day one. We see the ASI certification not as an objective, but as a baseline for continuous improvement towards a more sustainable aluminium world.”
