NS BlueScope achieves ResponsibleSteel certificate

NS BlueScope Vietnam’s factory in Phu My has been awarded the ResponsibleSteelTM certificate, becoming the first in Vietnam’s steel industry and the first alloy-coated steel plant in Southeast Asia to achieve this accolade.

Phu My factory is the third of its kind across BlueScope’s global production facilities to be named a responsible steel manufacturer.

In order to be eligible for this certificate, a business has to meet 12 strict criteria regarding environmental, social, and governance (ESG) that are specifically designed for the steel industry. These criteria enable businesses to have a common transparent roadmap applied globally for responsible steel manufacturing. NS BlueScope Vietnam’s plant in Phu My, particularly, meets most of these strict criteria, which is rarely seen in the industry.

In 2022, NS BlueScope Vietnam was also the first coated steel manufacturer and the only one of its kind in Vietnam to be certified by the Singapore Green Building Council. The company’s factory in Ba Ria – Vung Tau has also gained a LEED Gold Certificate. Being certified ResponsibleSteelTM will help NS BlueScope Vietnam to envision its roadmap in producing steel responsibly, but also inspire other businesses in the industry, partners, and suppliers to adopt ESG practices in accordance with ResponsibleSteelTM standards, thereby sharing ESG values and contributing to building a more sustainable steel community.
