SIG achieves another milestone in its ambition to go Way Beyond Good as a responsible company by offering ASI-certified aluminum as standard for all carton packs in North America. With this certification, SIG cartons will proudly display ASI-labels on new carton pack designs starting late September.
SIG is reportedly the first in the beverage carton industry and one of the first industries at all to obtain certification to both the ASI (Aluminum Stewardship Initiative) Performance and Chain of Custody standards. It is also the only aseptic carton producer to offer cartons with the ASI-certified label.
Certification to the Aluminum Stewardship Initiative (ASI) reportedly aims to enhance traceability and responsibility in the aluminum supply chain through audits against strict standards on ethical, environmental and social criteria. SIG has a tracking system in place that is regularly audited to maintain the certification.
SIG’s commitment to responsible sourcing is central to its company values. Partnerships with suppliers that support SIG’s Way Beyond Good and net positive goals are essential to SIG. ASI-certification strengthens SIG’s commitment to responsible sourcing.
First FSC™ label used started in 2009, and, since 2016, all SIG cartons can have the FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) label confirming that wood from FSC-certified, responsibly managed forests and other controlled sources is used for the manufacture of the unprocessed cardboard.
“SIG is steadfast in developing solutions and offering customers responsible packaging. We are able to enhance the environmental credentials of our cartons through the new ASI certification on the responsible production, sourcing and stewardship of aluminum,” said Eduardo Gatica, president and CEO, SIG North America.
