Join us to drive change in the industry

We provide a forum for businesses and social and environmental organisations to work together, creating value that neither group can create on its own. As a member you will be at the heart of the ResponsibleSteel programme, ensuring we create value for your organisation.

Help us to develop our standards

Full members (business and civil society members) have the exclusive opportunity to participate in working groups to develop ResponsibleSteel standards and vote on the adoption of standards and the ResponsibleSteel Constitution.

Participate in special events and webinars

Engage with key industry stakeholders and sustainability experts by participating in technical working groups to develop our standards, speaking at exclusive in-person member meetings, and attending member-only ‘Meet the Expert’ webinars.

Demonstrate your impact

Achieving responsibly produced net-zero steel is a journey. We collaborate with ResponsibleSteel members to showcase pioneering sustainability efforts and demonstrate progress and impact across the value chain.

How can you become a member?


Review membership fees and commitments. All members commit to supporting ResponsibleSteel and promoting the responsible sourcing and production of steel. Steelmaking, downstream, and upstream members make further commitments relating to certification and procurement.


Complete and submit the ResponsibleSteel membership application form. The ResponsibleSteel Board of Directors reviews all applications prior to approval.


Following Board approval, new members will be notified by the ResponsibleSteel Secretariat and announced in ResponsibleSteel’s newsletter and on social media channels.

"Tangible action to decarbonise the global steel industry is ramping up, and with the ResponsibleSteel International Standard, we have clear requirements on both greenhouse gas emissions and responsible sourcing of input materials.”

Prabodha Acharya

"Many customers are asking about green steel, and I don’t know what they mean by green steel, but when they ask for ResponsibleSteel we have a definitive standard. This is going to be the gold standard."

Rob Jenkinson

Net Zero Programme Manager, SKF

“SKF joined ResponsibleSteel because steel is such an important part of our value chain and because we want to play our part in collaborating for increased sustainability within the steel industry. We are very proud to have been part of the process to develop the Standard.”
