Responsible products and supply chains

Outcome 3 Responsible Products And Supply Chains

We actively seek to partner with suppliers who share the core values expressed in Our Bond and take a similar approach to looking after their employees’ health, safety and mental and financial wellbeing.

Responsible products and supply chains is one of five sustainability outcomes that matter most to our stakeholders and drive our success. View our video summary, or read our FY2020 Sustainability Report.

CASE STUDY: SHARING AND LEARNING WITH OUR SUPPLIERS

BlueScope businesses regularly engage with supply partners around the globe, hosting events and attending conferences to address key sustainability challenges.

NS BlueScope’s Phu My site in Vietnam hosted its first supplier sustainability conference during FY2020, bringing together over 50 guests, mostly suppliers, to discuss key issues for South East Asia and outline our Supplier Code of Conduct and assessment process.

New Zealand Steel’s Glenbrook site hosted the 2020 Health and Safety Supply Chain Partner Conference, bringing together around 150 employees, customers and suppliers to discuss and share ideas around the theme ‘People are our Solution’.

BlueScope representatives from Singapore, Thailand and Australia attended the 2019 CSR Asia summit, Asia’s largest sustainability conference, to explore supply chain challenges such as migration, human rights and the move to a more circular economy.
