Audi involved in standard for sustainable aluminum

Audi ultra-lightweight construction
Audi ultra-lightweight construction: The body of the Audi A8 was designed as an Audi Space Frame- (ASF) structure and consists largely of aluminum. As a result, it weighs approximately 40 percent less than a comparable steel structure.
  • AUDI AG is a new member of the Aluminium Stewardship Initiative, which is developing a global sustainability standard.
  • Board of Management Member for Procurement Dr. Martens: “Acting responsibly in the supply chain is an important goal at Audi.”
  • Ultra-lightweight construction: Aluminum is an element of an intelligent material mix.

AUDI AG is joining the Aluminium Stewardship Initiative to help develop a global standard for sustainable aluminum. As a pioneer of unitary aluminum car bodies, the company is taking the opportunity to influence the entire value chain of one of its most important materials – one of the objectives of Audi’s corporate-responsibility strategy.
