ResponsibleSteel publishes first-ever Annual Progress Report

Over the last eight years, ResponsibleSteel has gone from strength to strength. During that time, ResponsibleSteel has built up a thriving community of over 150 members and created the first-ever International Standard to drive the responsible production of net-zero steel, globally.

We’re driving industry progress

We now have certified sites in 14 countries employing over 220,000 workers and producing over 120 million tonnes of steel. In this first annual Progress Report, we take stock of the enormous strides ResponsibleSteel and our members have made to deliver on our shared mission and celebrate our collective achievements.

We also look forward as we build momentum toward some exciting announcements coming up this year. Version 2.1 of the ResponsibleSteel International Standard will be published this month and a new Downstream Chain of Custody Standard later this year. Most significantly, we expect the first steelmaking sites to achieve ResponsibleSteel certified steel this year, a global first for the industry.

We’re recognised globally

ResponsibleSteel continues to be recognised as a leader amongst sustainability initiatives, most notably by the IEA in their second report to the G7 on ‘Emissions Measurement and Data Collection for a Net Zero Steel Industry’ and more recently, Lead the Charge in their ‘Assessment of Third-Party Assurance and Accreditation Schemes in the Minerals, Steel and Aluminium Sectors’. And as more initiatives focusing on steel sustainability emerge, we’re playing a critical role in convening the sector and driving industry alignment to accelerate a net-zero future.

Come with us

This is only the beginning. We have a long journey ahead of us, but with the support of our members and stakeholders, we will continue to work to drive industry progress.
