Articles Grimshaw joins ResponsibleSteel initiative

Grimshaw has joined the ResponsibleSteel initiative as the first architecture/design practice to be part of its global objective to design net-zero carbon ready buildings and infrastructure by 2025, and deliver socially and environmentally regenerative buildings by 2030.

A not-for-profit organisation, ResponsibleSteel is the industry’s first global multi-stakeholder standard and certification initiative, welcoming members from every stage of the steel supply chain. Through a global standard and certification programme for the entire sector, ResponsibleSteel aims to ensure businesses and consumers can be confident that the steel they use has been sourced and produced responsibly at every stage.

On announcing Grimshaw's membership, Paul Toyne, Practice Leader for Sustainability at Grimshaw, said: “To address the climate emergency, we need participation from all parts of the construction supply chain. Steel contributes to global greenhouse gas pollution, so we are proud to join ResponsibleSteel in their efforts to support the steel sector to reduce emissions and ensure sustainability and responsibility in every stage of steel’s value chain.”
