The aluminium company ST Extruded Products Group, STEP-G for short, has been an official member of the Aluminium Stewardship Initiative (ASI) since March 2022. With this membership, STEP-G is taking the next step in its comprehensive sustainability strategy.
For the last ten years, the Aluminium Stewardship Initiative (ASI) has been working to improve transparency and sustainability among aluminium processors and manufacturers. In the context of a sustainable production process, it identifies potential for improvement and evaluates the effectiveness of the company’s sustainability strategy. As a non-profit standardisation and certification organisation, ASI thus pursues the vision of making a sustainable contribution to our society through the use of aluminium. By becoming a member of the ASI, STEP-G is committed to this sustainable manufacturing approach along the added value supply chain within the aluminium industry.
The main focus areas for STEP-G are the use of sustainable energy, the consistent recording of its ecological footprint in all production and logistics processes, and the establishment of a corporate social responsibility management system. Ensuring 100 per cent recyclability of its products and procuring sustainably sourced aluminium as a raw material are key elements of STEP-G’s approach to sustainability.
The aluminium specialist STEP-G is thus aware of its corporate responsibilities. “We actively take responsibility for making a sustainable contribution to society and our environment,” says Markus Ogawa, Managing Director STEP-G. “Our sustainability strategy is based on protecting our environment – starting with procurement and including our in-house production process and deliveries to our customers,” adds Edgar Gebhart, Managing Director STEP-G.
By joining ASI, the STEP-G Group of Companies has committed itself to reaching the next step for certification in accordance with the ASI Performance Standard.
