Sustainable Steel Council
The Sustainable Steel Council (SSC) was formed in 2009 to promote the use of steel as a sustainable building material to the various stakeholders within New Zealand's building and property industries.
Once Metals NZ was formed, SSC became part of MNZ.
NZ Metal Roofing Manufacturers Inc was a founder member of SSC and the Sustainability Sub- Committee of NZMRM is linked to SSC.
In 2012, SSC developed its own website, www.sustainablesteel.org.nz and this was launched at the Metals NZ 2013 Conference in May. While this has been a while in the making, we now have an attractive and useful website. We invite all readers of Scope/Members of NZMRM to check it out.
One of the intentions is to publish case studies of sustainable building projects incorporating steel and to become a site which is referenced by those looking for sustainable design. If you have any suitable projects please contact SSC via the website. You can also sign up for regular newsletters.
