We are delighted to announce that ResponsibleSteel has recently been approved as an ISEAL Community Member, joining a growing group of members committed to supporting and improving sustainable practices.
ISEAL supports ambitious sustainability systems and works to help members improve these systems to achieve maximum impact. ResponsibleSteel joins several ISEAL Community Members from the mining, metals and minerals sector and looks forward to having the opportunity to share knowledge and experience in order to develop and support sustainable growth in the steel industry.
Annie Heaton, ResponsibleSteel’s CEO commented, “As the only global multistakeholder standard for steel, our aim is to be a driving force in the socially and environmentally responsible production of net-zero carbon steel. We strive to ensure that our ResponsibleSteel International Standard is the most trusted standard for responsibly sourced and produced steel and a leading authority on ESG issues in the industry.”
She continued, “Obtaining ISEAL Community Membership is a critical step on this journey and will help us improve our systems and our credibility as a global standard. We plan to work towards becoming ISEAL Code Compliant over the next few years. We look forward to working with other members of the community and sharing knowledge and experience in order to ensure our work has the greatest impact possible.”
As the only global multi-stakeholder standard and certification initiative for responsibly sourced and produced steel, we are committed to continuously improving our Standard, maximising steel’s contribution to a sustainable world. The ResponsibleSteel International Standard covers a range of sustainability issues: climate change, pollution, and human rights concerns by taking into account both direct and upstream greenhouse gas emissions, air and water pollution, pollution from mining coal and iron ore, labour standards, and more.
ISEAL’s Executive Director, Karin Kreider, commented, “I am very excited to have ResponsibleSteel join ISEAL as a Community Member. Their standards address climate change, pollution, and human rights in various stages of the steel supply chain — the world’s most widely used material. I look forward to a fresh perspective from a new member in the mining and minerals sector and working together in the coming months and years.”
ISEAL members are sustainability systems and accreditation bodies dedicated to delivering benefits for people and the planet. They are committed to continually improving their systems and impacts through learning and innovation; collaborating with stakeholders and peers; and are transparent and truthful about how their systems work and how they measure their impacts.
We are proud to become an ISEAL Community Member and look forward to joining a growing number of sustainability initiatives that are working to drive positive change for both people and the planet.back to news
