Greenhouse Gas and Energy Policy

At BlueScope Steel’s two principal steelmaking sites in Australia and New Zealand – Port Kembla Steelworks and New Zealand Steel – a Greenhouse Gas and Energy Policy has been deployed.

The Industrial Markets Greenhouse Gas and Energy Policy commits the group to reducing greenhouse gas emissions and improving energy efficiency.  Specific commitments include:

Both sites are currently developing and implementing programs aimed at implementing this policy.

Greenhouse gas and energy consumption are also integral components of the Environmental Management System at North Star BlueScope Steel, our joint venture steelmaking plant in the United States.  Program management teams have been actively pursuing emission and consumption reductions through process improvements, new technologies, and innovative designs.

As large energy users, the Company’s Western Port, Port Kembla and Springhill operations are also currently producing energy efficiency plans in accordance with relevant State and Federal energy efficiency laws.
