ASI welcomes Qatalum as 193rd official member

Qatalum achieves another milestone as the newly recognized official member of the Aluminium Stewardship Initiative (ASI) organization

ASI is a global, non-profit standards setting and certification organization. Through ASI, producers, users, and stakeholders in the aluminium value chain are brought together with a commitment to maximise the contribution of aluminium to a sustainable society. Working together is also with the aim to collaboratively foster responsible production, sourcing and stewardship of aluminium.

After attaining membership with ASI, Qatalum’s follow through goal is to attain certification for both the ASI Performance Standard and Chain-of-Custody Standard which comes with the need in a new era of production. At Qatalum  all employees from junior staff to higher management are enjoined toact together as stewards of environment and sustainability in bringing Qatalum products to the world, including looking into the context of upstream and downstream processes of the entire Aluminum value chain.

There is now a paradigm shift in everyone's approach towards sustainability calling for an inclusive mindset of stakeholders' interests as consumers and the general public are becoming aware of, and demanding the need for responsible sourcing, circular economy and recycling, and sustainability performance.

​“With the increasing public awareness and to satisfy our customer’s requirement, Qatalum finds the need to showcase its long time efforts and commitment towards environmental protection and sustainability with the ultimate aim to have a balance among economy, ecology and environment.
We, at Qatalum, see that the better way to assure the public and our customers is for a non-partisan and reputable organization like ASI to validate and vouch for our company.

In Qatalum, we continue to strive that each one of us no matter what position or function in the organization is environmentally conscientious and having the sense and mind set of environmental stewardship.”
