We are a global not-for-profit multistakeholder standard and certification initiative. Our mission is to be a driving force in the socially and environmentally responsible production of net-zero steel, globally.

Building a sustainable steel industry requires cooperation and mutual commitment from companies at all levels of the steel supply chain, representatives of civil society, and other stakeholders. We provide the forum for this multi-stakeholder approach. Our members include some of the leading players in the industry working together to minimise the impact of steel manufacturing on people and the planet.

Dedicated to maximising steel’s contribution to a sustainable world by:

- Supporting the responsible sourcing and production of steel
- 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

Our work

The ResponsibleSteel™ International Standard is designed to support the responsible sourcing and production of steel. It covers a range of sustainability issues including emissions, pollution, responsible sourcing, human rights, labour standards, and more.

Through our global standard and certification programme, we will ensure businesses and consumers can be confident that the steel they use has been sourced and produced responsibly at every stage.


At ResponsibleSteel™, we believe in our mission to be a driving force in the socially and environmentally responsible production of net-zero steel, globally. We are a not-for-profit multi-stakeholder organisation that brings together business, civil society, downstream consumers, and other organisations, to provide a global standard and certification initiative for the steel industry.

We have built a consensus on what sustainability looks like for steel – including the impacts of mining, steel production, the scrap metal supply chain, greenhouse gas emissions, water use, workers’ rights, communities, and biodiversity. Our members include steelmakers, mining companies, buyers of steel from the automotive and construction industries, as well as civil society organisations focused on labour rights, biodiversity, climate change, and other important issues. We currently have over 130 members and around 13% of global steel production in membership.

Our people are at the heart of what we do and are our greatest asset. They deliver our success as an organisation through a combination of their professionalism, commitment, and the way they work together.

You would be part of shaping a growing organisation. We are recruiting colleagues that embrace our ambition and commitment and will benefit from our support of your learning and career development.
