New steel sustainability certification set to go

The ASI's new steel sustainability certification program for downstream steel businesses is nearing completion and expected to be operational in late 2022. An update of ASI's Environmental Sustainability Charter (ESC), the new Steel Sustainability Australia (SSA) certification program aligns with Green Building Council Australia‚Äôs (GBCA) recently revised and expanded Green Star rating tool. SSA will meet current and future expectations of multi-dimensional sustainability within the steel supply chain and support participating suppliers with a program that allows recognition of compliance. 

The development of SSA has already undergone numerous rounds of consultation and feedback with key industry stakeholders including the Green Building Council of Australia, environmental consultants, engineering firms, steel producers, steel processors, and suppliers.
