Indigenous peoples advising mining standards

An introductory brochure has been released by the Indigenous Peoples’ Advisory Forum (IPAF) to the Aluminium Stewardship Initiative (ASI)*. The Advisory Forum is an indigenous-led body that provides governance and implementation advice to the ASI, a multi-stakeholder initiative to certify socially and environmentally responsible actors along the aluminium supply chain.

The IPAF is seeking new members from among indigenous peoples’ communities and organisations representing people impacted by or involved in any aspect of the aluminium supply chain. Please contact indigenousforumasi@gmail.com for more information.

The brochure is available in English, French, Spanish and Portuguese (see links below).

* The Aluminium Stewardship Initiative, or ASI, is a standards and certification body that oversees standards for the production, recycling and trading of aluminium which aims to ensure that aluminium is produced, recycled and traded to high social and environmental standards.
