ResponsibleSteel welcomes International Tin Association as a new Associate Member.
The International Tin Association (ITA) is dedicated to supporting discussion and action on important regional and global issues affecting the tin industry. ITA brings together the world’s major tin producers to ensure an innovative, competitive, and sustainable tin supply chain that contributes to sustainable development and improved quality of life.
ITA’s leading responsible sourcing initiatives, including ITSCI and the tin Code of Conduct, help companies source minerals by embedding Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) considerations into their decisions and practices.
Kay Nimmo, Head of Sustainability, International Tin Association, said: “Tinplate is an effective packaging material in which tin protects steel against corrosion and contributes to the preservation of food. We are delighted to partner with ResponsibleSteel in its mission to maximise steel’s contribution to a sustainable society. This partnership demonstrates the leadership of both organisations to inspire and drive sustainable and ethical production in the metal sector.”
Matthew Wenban-Smith, Executive Director, ResponsibleSteel, said: “It is important to collaborate with members from every stage of the steel supply chain and we welcome International Tin Association as a new Associate Member. We recognise ITA’s focus on responsible sourcing initiatives and the Code of Conduct, which complements the ResponsibleSteel Standard.”back to news
