About ResponsibleSteel and the certification

RS was established first in 2019, and is described as the global steel industry's multi-stakeholder sustainability standard and certification program. The RS program is designed to ensure customers, stakeholders and consumers can be confident that the steel they use has been sourced and produced responsibly and as sustainably as possible. 


The RS 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. 


To gain certification is a rigorous process, and has taken years for BlueScope to acquire. Though a lengthy process, Bluescope says it ensures the integrity of the company's processes and product in an ever-changing industry. 


Congratulations to all involved with the acquisition of this award! If you would like to find out more about the certification, click here or watch the video.
