Our Members include steelmakers, mining companies, buyers of steel from automotive and construction, as well as civil society organisations focused on labour rights, biodiversity, climate change, and many other important issues. We currently have over 130 members and nearly 13% of global steel production in membership.

Our people are at the heart of what we do and are our greatest asset. They deliver our success as an organisation through a combination of their professionalism, commitment, and the way they work together.
