BlueScope’s COLORBOND® steel for exterior roofing and walling 0.42mm and 0.48mm in our 22 standard colours, Welded Beams and Columns and XLERPLATE® steel have gained Global GreenTagCertTM GreenRate certification.

All of these products have achieved the highest rating, ‘Level A’.

GreenRate™ is a robust and comprehensive third-party verified ecolabelling program aligned with the ISO 14024 standard for environmental labels and declarations. It evaluates products against a range of sustainability attributes, including health and ecotoxicity of materials and availability of environmental footprints (water and carbon). The program also evaluates the manufacturer’s environmental and social responsibility performance across a range of criteria, including environmental management systems, and ethical labour and supply chains.

“The achievement of GreenRate Level A for a number of our key products is a significant milestone in BlueScope’s product sustainability journey. Certification demonstrates BlueScope’s long-standing commitment to developing innovative, sustainable products and services.”
John Nowlan, Chief Executive, Australian Steel Products, BlueScope

GreenRate™ certification is recognised by the Green Building Council of Australia and the Infrastructure Sustainability Council of Australia.
