The EMS Mentor guides you through 5 steps to Continuous Environmental Improvement!
Becoming a Charter Member
The fabricator / steelwork contractor is required to be a member of the Environmental Sustainability Charter and maintain an environmental management scheme. The ASI provides a mentoring scheme to BS 8555 through a web-based EMS which is designed for small to medium enterprises. Fabricators with ISO 14001 can use this to fulfil their obligations but must provide evidence through the web-based mentor and be working on an environmental improvement project.
International applicants must demonstrate that they purchase their steel from a steelmaker who is compliant with ISO 14001 and who is a member of the World Steel Association’s Climate Action Programme, then follow the normal process.
To become a charter member, please contact Margrit Colenbrander at the Australian Steel Institute on 02 8748 0190.
