CSR Europe Joins ResponsibleSteel

CSR Europe, on the behalf of Drive Sustainability, has joined ResponsibleSteel as Associate Member.

CSR Europe is the leading European business network for Corporate Sustainability and Responsibility and facilitator of Drive Sustainability, the partnership of 11 leading automotive companies. Together, they have the vision to lead the shift towards a more circular and sustainable automotive value chain by leveraging a common voice and engage with suppliers, stakeholders, and other sectors. As steel is one of the most relevant materials for the products in the automotive sector, joining forces with Responsible Steel represents a milestone in Drive Sustainability’s approach.

“Drive Sustainability, representing some of the major global car producers with a collaborative agenda towards a circular and sustainable automotive supply chain will be a great asset in helping ResponsibleSteel and our members to develop applicable approaches and tools” said Ali Lucas, Executive Director of ResponsibleSteel.  “We are delighted to welcome CSR Europe as an Associate member and benefiting from their insight and experience”, continued Ali Lucas.

Stefan Crets, Executive Director at CSR Europe, said: “Steel plays a very important role when it comes to reducing carbon emissions in the supply chain or striving towards circular production and sustainable business models. ResponsibleSteel, as a standard and certification initiative has an important role to play within this context. A sustainable steel supply chain is crucial for the companies involved in Drive Sustainability, as it contributes to reach the strategic ambitions of the partnership from a social and environmental perspective. CSR Europe is looking forward working with ResponsibleSteel to help the ecosystem of the steel supply chain, especially producers and their upstream supply network, to move towards more responsibly sourced and produced steel.”
