The dual partners pursue sustainability as an critical idea in their corporate plan and together wish to revoke CO2 emissions from a use of aluminum. By 2025, Audi aims to revoke a CO2 footprint of a products via their lifecycle by about 30 percent compared with 2015. There is good intensity in a use of tolerable and responsibly extracted resources.

Certification by a ASI is a outcome of several workshops in that Audi and Hydro exchanged their imagination on effective measures for COreduction. “We wish to offer a business totally CO2‑neutral mobility by 2050 during a latest. To do that, we need a tolerable supply chain,” says Dr. Bernd Martens, Audi Board of Management Member for Procurement and IT. “We therefore find discourse with a partners and, together with them, wish to significantly revoke CO2 emissions along a whole value chain.” In late 2018, Audi started a CO2 program in buying and given afterwards has already carried out some-more than 20 CO2 workshops with aluminum suppliers.

Hydro is one of a initial aluminum producers to offer tolerable piece aluminum that is approved by a ASI. “We are really unapproachable to supply ASI-certified metal, generally for a Audi e-tron, one of Audi’s flagships. We are constantly operative on shortening a impact and that of a business on a environment,” says Einar Glomnes, Executive Vice President during Hydro. “This is an critical miracle in a plan of assisting a business to request a fact that they offer aluminum products that are procured and constructed responsibly along a whole value chain.”

ASI encompasses environmentally, socially and economically reliable criteria that request along a whole value chain, from a descent of a tender element bauxite to a processing, prolongation and recycling of aluminum. For example, it is assessed either a association uses a element in a resource-conserving manner, prepares holistic lifecycle analyses and considers a successive correct and recyclability of a products in a pattern phase.
