Here's a snapshot of our Sustainability Highlights for this past year (also provided below), and you can read more details on our progress and case studies in the FY2020 BlueScope Sustainability Report.
This year's Report arrives amidst the unprecedented challenge COVID-19 has presented to our business, the global economy and society at large. BlueScope people have responded with unwavering focus and pride to the large-scale challenge. From widespread facility and supply chain disruption, to reworked health and safety planning and rapidly implementing remote work arrangements, our people have truly shown strength and resilience to succeed through significant and rapid change.
In our Report, we proudly recognise the launch of Our Purpose:
We create and inspire smart solutions in steel, to strengthen our communities for the future.
Our Purpose speaks to who we are and what we value as a global team – ‘creating strength’ with confidence, optimism and working together; transforming BlueScope for the realities of a competitive and fast-changing economy, inspiring our customers with sustainable choices and supporting the global shift to a low carbon economy. In working to one BlueScope Purpose, every day, we aspire to achieve sustainability outcomes in the areas of sustainable and enduring business, safe and inclusive workplaces, climate change action, responsible products and supply chain and strong communities.
This year's Report is published alongside our first Modern Slavery Statement and our FY2020 Tax Contribution Report. BlueScope's Sustainability Report for FY2020 is prepared in accordance with the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) at a Core level, and introduces alignment to the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB) Standard. We aim to ensure our Company's governing processes and documents reflect BlueScope's relentless commitment to the highest standards of governance and business conduct.
"I thank everyone at BlueScope for their contribution to our sustainability outcomes this year. May we continue to inspire each other as we strengthen our business and build stronger communities for the future" (Mark Vassella, BlueScope Managing Director and CEO).
