Commitment to ResponsibleSteel

ArcelorMittal has taken a leading role in forming and committing to ResponsibleSteel™, the steel industry's first multi-stakeholder global certification initiative.

ResponsibleSteel™ was set up in 2015 as a non-profit organisation to drive a more responsible future for the steel industry. It has built the first global certification program and standard for the entire steel value chain from mining, to production processes, to final stage sales and distribution. Certification standards include the following areas:

  • Climate Change & Greenhouse Gas Emissions
  • Water Responsibility & Biodiversity
  • Human Rights & Labour Law
  • Local Communities & Business Integrity



Explaining ArcelorMittal’s commitment to ResponsibleSteel™, Alan Knight, Global Head of Sustainable Development, said: "Responsible production techniques and high ethical and business standards are becoming increasingly important to our customers, and ultimately to their customers and consumers. We want to get to a point where steel users and purchasers have total confidence in their choices. ResponsibleSteel™ provides us with a fantastic opportunity to do this and to create the world’s first certification programme for the industry."

ResponsibleSteel™ is a membership-based organisation currently comprising 22 members including steel producers, car manufacturers (BMW Group and Daimler), finance providers such as HSBC, industry organisations and NGOs. The scheme formally launched its certification standards following a rigorous accreditation process. The final version of the ResponsibleSteel™ certification standard has been published in November 2019, following a two-year consultation process. ResponsibleSteel™ expects to rapidly grow its membership base with the aim of becoming the industry-recognised standard around the world.
