The ASI Environmental Sustainability Charter (ESC) membership is open to companies with structural steelwork fabrication or processing facilities in Australia.
The Environmental Sustainability Charter (ESC) was established for steelwork fabricators, processors and contractors to run their businesses more sustainably, demonstrate environmental responsibility and to fulfil steelwork sustainability requirements where a project specifies this commitment as a contractual requirement.
ESC member companies formally declare their commitment to a set of environmentally sustainable principles and operations. The ESC member demonstrates environmental responsibility and continual improvement to carbon footprint reduction through project initiatives such as energy efficiency, scrap management and recycling and capital upgrades, whilst at the same time making cost savings.
An ESC member company’s commitment and performance to environmentally sustainable operations are assessed and monitored via an annual audit against a range of environmental requirements as managed by ASI’s online Environmental Management System (EMS) compliant to BS 8555.
The company is certified to one of levels of performance (below) under the Charter, and is issued with an ASI ESC certification certificate and ESC logo that can used as proof of certification and displayed on company promotional material.
A joining fee and an annual fee are payable, which covers the introductory mentoring session, an annual audit and administration costs
