Audi and Hydro: Joint Commitment To Sustainable Aluminum

source: Audi AG

  • Hydro supplies sustainable, ASI-certified aluminum to Audi
  • Compliance with environmental and social standards in entire chain of custody
  • Use in the battery housing of the Audi e-tron electric SUV

The supply chain of the Audi e-tron is becoming more sustainable: The aluminum producer Hydro now supplies sustainable aluminum for the battery housing of the first fully electric model of the company. The material is processed and manufactured along the entire process chain in an environmentally friendly manner and under socially acceptable working conditions. This has been confirmed by the Aluminium Stewardship Initiative (ASI) with a “chain of custody” certificate. The ASI already awarded Audi a certificate for the sustainable assembly of these aluminum components in October 2018. This means that the aluminum sheets processed in the battery housing of the Audi e-tron are now demonstrably produced in a responsible manner along the entire value chain, from the extraction of the bauxite raw material to the end product.
