ResponsibleSteel™

ResponsibleSteel™

ResponsibleSteel™ is a global, multi-stakeholder, not-for-profit standard and certification initiative for the responsible sourcing and production of steel. Its vision is that steel’s contribution to a sustainable society is maximised.  Its mission is to enhance the responsible sourcing, production, use and recycling of steel by:

  • Providing a multi-stakeholder forum to build trust and achieve consensus;
  • Developing standards, certification and related tools;
  • Driving positive change through the recognition and use of responsible steel.

  • More than 90% of all the metal produced every year is steel. In addition, 20% of all tin and tungsten, 60% of all nickel and zinc, 75% of chromium and 85% of manganese and vanadium are used for steel coatings and alloys. More than 600 million tons of metallurgical coal is mined every year for steelmaking.

    The ResponsibleSteel™ standards system will cover the sourcing of raw materials used for steelmaking including iron ore, metallurgical coal, scrap metal and charcoal, as well as the production of steel. ResponsibleSteel™ will not certify mine sites itself, but will recognise materials certified under credible initiatives such as those of the Initiative for Responsible Mining Assurance (IRMA), and the Mining Association of Canada’s Towards Sustainable Mining programme.

    The ResponsibleSteel™ standard for steelmaking, approved in November 2019, addresses: Corporate Leadership; Social, Environmental and Governance Management Systems; Occupational Health and Safety; Labour Rights; Human Rights; Stakeholder Engagement and Communication; Local Communities; Climate Change and Greenhouse Gas Emissions; Noise, Emissions, Effluents and Waste; Water Stewardship; Biodiversity; Decommissioning and Closure. ResponsibleSteel™ currently has nearly 90 members representing all stages of the steel supply chain, Civil Society Organisations and Associate members from a wide range of interested organisations.
