Flat and Long Steel


The production of flat and long steel has a considerable impact on the environment. However, it is a necessary product with no viable alternative.

Eco Choice Aotearoa’s standard for flat and long steel, aims to minimise harm through best practice and requirements around continuous improvement and the pursuit of sustainable innovations.

Priority issues around the production of flat and long steel are:

  • Energy consumption and emissions
  • Resource depletion
  • Water pollution

This standard is recognised by the Australian and New Zealand Green Building Councils.
