The ASI certifications are valid for three years and include the Juruti bauxite mine in Brazil, the Alumar alumina refinery near Sao Luis, Brazil, and the aluminum smelter in San Ciprian, Spain.
“We are honored that ASI has certified these three locations and recognized our sustainable approach, which drives how we operate our facilities, manufacture our products, and interact with our communities,” said Alcoa President and Chief Executive Officer Roy Harvey. “We consistently work to produce bauxite, alumina and aluminum in a responsible manner, and achieving ASI Certification is an important differentiator for our Company as a recognized leader in sustainability.”
