London, September 13th, 2017
Steel producers, steel customers & civil society representatives came together in London in September for the first time to give input and support to the development of the ResponsibleSteelTM initiative.
The level and diversity of participation highlighted the importance of multi-stakeholder standards and certification for the global steel industry.
Matthew Wenban-Smith, Executive Director at ResponsibleSteelTM commented:
It has been a productive time at ResponsibleSteelTM. We have received some really encouraging feedback and we are delighted with the progress we are making. It was pleasing to see so much commitment, intellectual firepower and energy in the group. The formulation of our Interim Council is an important step and fundamental to our multi-stakeholder approach.
Key actions and decisions made at the meeting to bring the ResponsibleSteelTM initiative to the next level included:
1. Organisational development
2. Developing a draft standard
3. Membership development
The first Interim Council meeting will be hosted at DNV’s London offices on December 8th 2017.
