Changes to Green Star Steel Credits came into effect from 29th April, 2010. Changes to the Green Star Steel Rating System now mean that two points are no longer awarded for the use of reinforced content of reinforcing steels. For eligibility for points, a base criteria is now in place including 95% by mass of structural steel and reinforcing steel used in the building is sourced from Steel making facilities that have a currently valid ISO 14001 Environmental Management System (EMS) and Steel is sourced from steel makers who are members of the World Steel Association’s Climate Action Programme. In addition, for up to two credit points to be awarded additional initiatives must be undertaken, these include energy reducing processes (PIT), steel meets or exceeds 500 MPa and offsite fabrication techniques.

Green Star® Letter - Polymer Injection Technology Reinforcing Projects - May 2010
A recent review by the Green Building Council of Australia (GBCA) has developed a new set of criteria for Green Star™ credits to encourage environmentally responsible production, design and fabrication methods that result in efficient use of steel as a building material. The changes recognise and reward the role of both steel manufacturers and reinforcing processors. A new prerequisite for achieving Green Star credits on steel is that the steel must come from a manufacturer that is both a member of the World Steel Association’s Climate Action Programme and has a valid ISO 14001 Environmental Management System (EMS). Liberty OneSteel Market Mills meets both compliance criteria.
