Committed to sustainability

Steel plays a critical role in the sustainable development of our society. 

Our steel products and services are continuously evolving and improving to ensure we contribute all we can to the opportunities and challenges created by society’s move towards a lower carbon economy. We know that to deliver true long-lasting value and meet the expectations of all our stakeholders, our business must continue transforming on all fronts.

Always guided by Our Bond and our Guide to Business Conduct, we are determined to do what’s right. We act in the best interests of our business, people and stakeholders, behave ethically and honour our environmental and economic responsibilities. Our determination to do what's right bolsters our resilience no matter what the challenge. 

BlueScope’s Statement on Human Rights sets out our human rights commitments to our people who work with us.  Importantly we recognise that our partnerships with suppliers are crucial in ensuring the social, environmental and ethical risks inherent in our global supply chains are managed according to the values inherent in Our Bond.

Our Responsible Sourcing Standard has been designed to ensure we have sustainable sourcing practices that create, protect and grow long-term environmental, social and economic value for all those involved in bringing BlueScope’s products and services to market. 

BlueScope is an active member of various industry associations.  Membership allows BlueScope and peer companies to jointly address long term, global issues such as lower-emissions steelmaking technology. More information on BlueScope and industry associations is available here.
