JW Aluminum, a South Carolina-based producer of high-quality flat-rolled aluminum products, announced earlier this month that it had achieved Aluminum Stewardship Initiative Performance Standard Certification across its entire operations. 

JW Aluminum announced in a June 4 news release that its South Carolina and Arkansas plants are the first continuous cast rolling facilities in the U.S. to be certified to ASI's latest Version 3.0 standard. The company serves the building products, HVAC, and transportation markets. 

JW Aluminum’s South Carolina and Arkansas locations are the U.S.'s first continuous cast rolling facilities to be fully certified to ASI’s Performance Standard V3 (2022).ASI is a global, multi-stakeholder nonprofit certification body that sets standards to promote sustainability throughout the aluminum value chain.

JW Aluminum said it underwent rigorous third-party audits to assess its adherence to the ASI Performance Standard's environmental, social, and governance requirements and practices. ASI's Performance Standard V3 defines principles and criteria for sustainability factors like production and sourcing, including greenhouse gas emissions, waste management, material stewardship, human rights, and more.

"We are extremely proud to have achieved ASI Certification across all of our operations," said Ryan Roush, COO at JW Aluminum. "As a domestic aluminum rolled products producer, our business model is inherently circular, and our corporate culture fosters integrity and accountability in every facet of our operations. Customers in our core markets and our stakeholders share these values.”

Fiona Solomon, chief executive officer of the Aluminium Stewardship Initiative, said, "We congratulate JW Aluminum on achieving Performance Standard Certification V3 (2022). With products that are destined for several key downstream industries, this Certification demonstrates JW Aluminum's commitment to responsible manufacturing processes and their important role in fostering improved environmental, social, and governance outcomes across the [aluminum] value chain."
