BCSA Sustainability Charter Objectives and Application
The objective of the BCSA Sustainability Charter is to further advance steel as a sustainable form of construction including carbon reduction, structural efficiency, economic viability, social progress and environmental responsibility.
Charter Member companies are audited against a flexible set of requirements. The Charter can be awarded at four levels; Certified, Bronze, Silver and Gold. To achieve the charter at any of these levels a minimum number of mandatory points and additional points must be obtained.
Companies with BES6001 will automatically qualify for Charter membership, without the need to undertake the full charter application process as follows:
|BES 6001||SCSC Charter Level|
For more detailed information on the requirements and points please download the Steel Construction Sustainability Charter Toolkit Document
Details about the Charter requirements were explained in a webinar in May 2021, which can be viewed below.
