Vision

Customers trust that their steel meets clear environmental, social and governance standards.

Mission

Create, implement and operate a respected global steel supply chain certification standard recognizing the environmental, social & governance performance expected by its stakeholders.

Background

The standard aims to address changing customer and market expectations and regulatory dynamics that are driving an increased demand for greater transparency in product supply chains. More transparent supply chains allow stakeholders to:

  • Make more informed decisions regarding procurement of goods and services
  • Manage the growing awareness and impact of social, environmental, economic and governance risks
  • Identify and realise new cost efficiencies
  • Leverage opportunities for market differentiation through innovation and collaboration
