Capral receives first Chain of Custody-certified shipment

Manufacturing News

Capral Aluminium has announced the achievement of what it says is a “significant milestone in sustainable sourcing” this month, receiving its first Aluminium Stewardship Initiative (ASI) Chain of Custody (CoC)-certified shipment from Aluminium Bahrain (Alba.) 

According to a statement from Capral, the certification assures that the aluminium in its products has been responsibly sourced and produced to the highest environmental, social, and governance standards. 

Capral joined ASI last year and last month announced certification in ASI Performance Standard V3 and Chain of Custody (CoC) V2 for extrusion, warehousing and distribution of aluminium products and services, applying to all 26 of Capral’s Australian facilities.

“Capral embarked on the journey of ASI Performance and Chain of Custody Certification to offer Australian manufacturers, engineers, architects and builders who are working with our product confidence regarding the origins of their aluminium,” said the company’s Luke Hawkins.

CoC certification is described as a globally recognised standard for responsible production, sourcing, and use of aluminium, guaranteeing that all stages of the production process, from the extraction of raw materials to refining, smelting and production of primary aluminium billet, have been carried out responsibly and transparently.

Bahrain-based Alba is a global aluminium smelter, a member of the ASI since 2019, and announced CoC certification in May.

Alba’s CEO Ali Al Baqali said, “This is our first ASI CoC shipment into Australia, following an industry-leading move by Capral to achieve their own ASI Chain of Custody certification.”
