Responsible Steel in Australia

The Steel Stewardship Forum has been established to bring together all participants in the Australian Steel Supply Chain with the common goal of achieving sustainability improvements across the entire chain.

An early initiative of the Forum is the development of a certification scheme for Australia.

PE INTERNATIONAL is currently working with the Forum to develop the Business Case for this initiative. The project seeks to develop a clear and measurable sustainability certification process across the entirety of the steel supply chain, from mining to scrap recovery, and to measure progress in sustainability improvement against a set of agreed benchmarks.

The Steel Stewardship Forum’s goal is to develop a credible and independently verifiable steel certification scheme, to be known as Responsible Steel, which  seeks to minimise impact and improve performance throughout the steel value chain, and is recognised by the industry and external stakeholders.
