Alcoa’s bauxite mines and alumina refineries in Western Australia have received certification from the Aluminium Stewardship Initiative (ASI). ASI’s Performance Standard certification process requires a comprehensive, third-party audit, which was completed successfully at the Huntly and Willowdale bauxite mines and the Kwinana, Pinjarra, and Wagerup alumina refineries.
“This recognition validates the strong commitment we have to responsible and sustainable production and to working with our stakeholders to deliver long-term value,” said Michelle O’Neill, Alcoa’s executive VP and head of External Affairs. “It is additional evidence of our commitment to advance sustainably, one of our strategic priorities and a key differentiator for our future.”
ASI is a global sustainability certification program for the aluminium industry, representing both upstream producers and downstream manufacturers, with participation from a broad spectrum of civil society organizations.
In total, Alcoa now has nine locations in four countries certified to ASI’s Performance Standard with additional locations undergoing the review process.
