Ardagh Metal Packaging certifies against ASI Performance Standard
Aluminium Stewardship Initiative (ASI) today announced that Ardagh Metal Packaging (AMP) has been certified against the Performance Standard (V2) 2017 for its centralised operational functions, global support functions and quality assurance at the regional research center in Bonn, Germany, and for the manufacturing of beverage can bodies and ends across its European operations.
Additionally, AMP has been certified against the Performance Standard (V2) 2017 for its Ardagh Industria de Embalagens Metalicas do Brasil Ltda facility. The certification covers the production of beverage can ends at the Manaus, Brazil facility, as well as management activities for centralised operational functions, global support functions and quality assurance at its regional central organisation in São Paulo, Brazil.
The ASI Certification program was developed through an extensive multi-stakeholder consultation process and is the only comprehensive voluntary sustainability standard initiative for the aluminium value chain. ASI Performance Standard certifications focusing on ‘material stewardship’ address issues such as product design, life cycle assessments, management of process scrap and collection and recycling of products at end of life.
The independent, third-party audit of the AMP operations was carried out by DNV Business Assurance Services UK Ltd.
"AMP is delighted to receive this latest recognition of our sustainability performance,’’ said Oliver Graham, Chief Executive Officer. “We are committed to the sustainability leadership of aluminium beverage packaging and ASI certification across a number of our global facilities is confirmation that we are progressing on this journey. It demonstrates the strength of the beverage can as the answer for a Circular Economy and AMP as the right partner for our customers and communities in achieving shared environmental, social and governance goals."
