Sustainable aluminum for battery housing of Audi e-tron

Sustainable aluminum for battery housing of Audi e-tron
  • Audi is the first automobile manufacturer to achieve sustainability certification issued by Aluminium Stewardship Initiative (ASI)
  • Performance Standard Certification for material stewardship of aluminum and sustainable manufacture of the battery housing of the Audi e-tron
  • Board Member for Procurement Bernd Martens: “Audi stands for sustainability along the entire supply chain” 

Audi is the first automobile manufacturer worldwide to receive a certificate from the Aluminium Stewardship Initiative (ASI). With the Performance Standard certification, the ASI confirms that Audi meets the ASI requirements for industrial users of aluminum and sustainably designs and manufactures the aluminum components of the battery housing of the Audi e-tron. For the assessment, independent third-party auditors carried out audits at the Audi plants in Győr, Neckarsulm and Brussels. As the next step, Audi intends to ensure the sustainability of these components also in its supply chain. To those ends, the company plans to work specifically with partners that are also certified by the ASI.
