December 17, 2020 (Pittsburgh, PA) – SRI Quality System Registrar joins ResponsibleSteel™ as a new Associate Member
SRI Quality System Registrar, an international assessment body headquartered in Pittsburgh, PA, with services accredited by ANAB, RvA, IATF, AA1000, GBCI and IWBI, assesses and assists in conformance to quality, environmental, health and safety, social responsibility, information security, green building rating systems, and other international standards.
SRI was founded in 1991 as Steel Related Industries Quality System Registrar, a part of the Steel Industry Supplier Audit Program (SISAP). SRI quickly became an industry leader and one of the world’s largest registrars to metals and materials companies. Over the last 30 years, SRI participated in writing standards and introduced the value of third-party assurance to many industries. SRI’s roots remain in quality and sustainability within the steel industry.
Steel companies are major suppliers to, and customers of, other leading industrial sectors. As a committed member of the global supply chain, SRI offers metal and materials clients the assessment services they need to improve, compete, and succeed responsibly in the marketplace today. This includes a dedicated sustainability practice focusing on CSR/ESG performance.
“Part of SRI’s own evolution has been to update its sustainability goals to better reflect the business market of today and the future. Working to achieve goals such as Net-Zero by 2030 and joining ResponsibleSteel, allows SRI to learn, share, and help advance sustainability in the steel industry and beyond,” remarks SRI President, Christopher Lake. “We hope to contribute by lending three decades of sustainability and assessment expertise in our collaboration with ResponsibleSteel and stakeholders from every part of the steel supply chain, as we all work towards advancing steel’s contribution to a sustainable society.”
“ResponsibleSteel is excited to welcome SRI as an Associate member.” said Ali Lucas, Executive Director – ResponsibleSteel. “SRI’s deep knowledge and expertise in the field of international standards will be a powerful addition to many of the projects and programmes that ResponsibleSteel is currently developing and working on, and we are really looking forward to sharing ideas, knowledge and experience over the coming months and years.”
A not-for-profit organization, ResponsibleSteel is the steel industry’s first global multi-stakeholder standard and certification initiative. Its mission is to maximize steel’s contribution to a sustainable society through cooperation and mutual commitment by companies at all levels of the steel supply chain, representatives of civil society and other stakeholders. ResponsibleSteel provides a forum for a multi-stakeholder approach and is committed to open dialogue with all stakeholders and to collaboration with the best equivalent schemes wherever possible to help achieve the mission. Welcoming members from every stage of the steel supply chain, ResponsibleSteel developed an independent certification standard and programme via a process that aims to align with the ISEAL Codes of Good Practice.
