Within the IS rating tool, a number of opportunities exist to gain credits using BlueScope Steel products.
"We see the IS rating scheme as a landmark in sustainable infrastructure for Australia. With BlueScope Steel being an industry leader in environment and sustainability, with a dedicated sustainability team, we are proud to be a long-standing member of AGIC." said Mr Ross Davies, Relationship Manager - Sustainability of BlueScope Steel.
BlueScope Steel has been an organisational member with AGIC since its inception in 2008, and was a co-sponsor of the materials category of the IS rating tool, affirming the company’s commitment to sustainability.
Within the IS rating tool, a number of opportunities exist to gain credits using BlueScope Steel products. For example, the rating process aims to reward the reduction of life cycle environmental impact of materials. In addition, with an intrinsic scrap value and a well-established recycling sector, a lower percentage of steel ends up as landfill compared with other building materials, also assisting in meeting the IS criteria.
Mr Davies said, "As a member of AGIC, we are committed to ensuring our life cycle inventory (LCI) data is accurate and conforms to the requirements of the AGIC materials calculator."
Comprehensive LCI of BlueScope Steel products can be accessed through the Building Products Innovation Council LCI database.
