Sustainable Constructional Steel Certification Scheme
What is the Sustainable Constructional Steel
The Sustainable Constructional Steel (SCS) Certification Scheme ensures that construction steel entering Australia and New Zealand from anywhere in the world meets the highest global environmental, social and ethical standards, using independent certification of ESG criteria and performance indicators. In so doing, it seeks to improve the environmental, social, and economic management of steel producers and processors, as well as improving the performance of products.
The Scheme aligns to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals and measures and monitors a comprehensive range of criteria through the global supply chain, including ethical business practices; modern slavery, human rights and labour conditions; environmental impacts (including circular economy and climate change); fair supplier treatment and the socio-economic impacts of the steel value chain. Launched in 2009, its 9th version was released in 2020.
