Slim Aluminium S.p.A. and Aluminium Bahrain have joined the Aluminium Stewardship Initiative (ASI) as Production and Transformation members, bringing the total number of ASI members to 81.
Slim Aluminium S.p.A. is a vertically integrated plant with cast house, rolling mills and finishing lines, manufacturing flat rolled aluminium products. Based in Cisterna di Latina, near Rome, the company has been active for over 50 years. With a maximum capacity of approximately 92,000 tonnes per year, Slim Aluminium S.p.A. supplies a large number of companies with products offering a gauge range of 6 µm to 6 mm in soft as well as hard alloys.
“We are glad to join this association with the aim to receive support and offer our contribution as we believe that as part of a global group we can be stronger in spreading the sustainability of aluminium in all its uses and applications along its whole lifecycle”, commented the Slim Aluminium S.p.A. team.
Aluminium Bahrain is one of the largest industrial companies in the Middle East and is currently expanding to build the world’s largest single site aluminium smelter with a production rate of 1.5 million metric tonnes per year within the next five years. The company joins the ASI after achieving full compliance with the most recent ISO certification and implementation of International Finance Corporation protocols.
“Joining the ASI is a great stride for Alba but as we have a rigorous audit process ahead of us, we need to be extremely prepared as the only easy day was yesterday. To become more sustainable, we must continue to take extreme ownership in everything we do, and to streamline our processes and procedures to be aligned with the ASI requirements,” said Aluminium Bahrain’s chief Tim Murray.
The ASI, which was created in 2012 to promote several sustainability standards from environment to health and safety throughout the entire aluminium supply chain, allows its members to benefit through their association with ASI’s multi-stakeholder work program and directly contribute to enhancing sustainability in the global aluminium sector. The current 81 members include aluminium companies, industry associations and wildlife NGOs.
