Trimble Joins ResponsibleSteel to Further Sustainability Efforts in the Steel Industry
First Software Technology Provider to Join Industry Organization
Trimble is also the first
With owners and operators of both building and infrastructure assets increasingly expecting their construction partners to choose sustainably sourced materials, there is a growing opportunity and urgency for the steel industry to minimize its environmental impact. With Trimble's Tekla software solutions, engineering, detailing and construction firms and fabrication workshops can more effectively calculate and plan the use of steel in steel structures and in steel reinforcement in concrete structures.
Tekla's Embodied Carbon Calculator enables designers and detailers to assess the potential environmental implications of designs to quickly compare various structural options' carbon impact. Additionally, a plugin to Tekla Structures enables the upload of material quantities in a design to One Click LCA, a lifecycle assessment software that helps users calculate and reduce the environmental impacts of their designs.
"Thanks to its industry-wide nature, ResponsibleSteel has the ability to bring about impactful change to the way steel is created, sold, sourced and applied," said Päivi Puntila, director, Business Development and Sustainability Lead for the Structures Division at Trimble. "As one of the key players in design software for steel structures, Trimble solutions have contributed to making construction more sustainable by raising efficiencies, helping avoid waste during construction, and enabling data reporting on the climate impact of projects. Our membership of ResponsibleSteel is further proof of our commitment to helping protect and build a better world to drive a sustainable future."
"Companies, through industry associations, are uniting to advance sustainability to empower collective action. Associations provide opportunities to share best practices, collaborate on challenges important in their industries and set standards on GHG emission and the sourcing of input materials," said
In 2022, Trimble received approval for its emissions reduction targets by the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi), a coalition of the CDP, the United Nations Global Compact, the
ResponsibleSteel's purpose is to maximize steel's contribution to a sustainable world. It aims to be a driving force in the socially and environmentally responsible production of net-zero carbon steel, globally. For that mission, it has developed an independent certification standard and program via a process that aims to align with the ISEAL Codes of Good Practice. Businesses from every part of the steel supply chain, civil society groups, associations, and other organizations with an interest in a sustainable steel industry from anywhere in the world are welcome to join.
