Global rigid packaging supplier Crown Holdings has announced the achievement of its Aluminium Stewardship Initiative (ASI) certifications within the Asia-Pacific region.

This expansion comes as part of the company’s commitments highlighted in its ‘Twentyby30’ sustainability programme that aims to help in advancing responsible supply chains.

Crown Asia-Pacific president Carlos Baila said: “Achieving this ASI certification is another proof point of our dedication to maintaining reputable supply chain relationships and meeting the evolving needs of brands in the Asia-Pacific market.

“We are committed to operating ethically and remaining accountable to our own standards, as well as those of our partners, as we continue to serve customers around the world.”

Crown said that it has already achieved the ASI Performance Standard certification for its existing operations in Brazil and Mexico.

It has now received that same certification for its Nong Khae and Crown TCP beverage packaging plants in Thailand.

With these added two plants, the total number of Crown’s facilities to receive this credential has increased to 12.

Under its next steps, the company is now focusing to expand its responsible and ethical sourcing programmes to other locations, including in the Asian, European, and Middle Eastern regions.

The ASI is a multistakeholder, non-profit standards and certification organisation. It works to maximise the use of aluminium and its contribution to forming a more sustainable society.

The performance standards under the ASI mainly address environmental, social and governance factors for the aluminium value chain while ensuring that the recipient is using responsible production practices.

Crown said the recently held independent, third-party audit of its Thailand facilities was conducted by LiberoAssurance.

ASI CEO Fiona Solomon said: “By training employees around vital sustainability areas such as biodiversity, safety, and human rights, Crown is driving positive change within its operations.

“Through this latest certification in Thailand, Crown is extending its commitment to responsible practices and we look forward to the company’s continued pursuit of ASI certification across its global operations.”
