Australian Steel Institute 2 mins read

Sustainable use of steel in building and construction projects has never been more important.

 

With this in mind, the steel industry’s peak body for locally made steel the Australian Steel Institute (ASI) has launched the Steel Sustainability Awards to recognise exemplary achievements in sustainable design and use of steel.

 

If you have a project or initiative demonstrating exemplary sustainable steel performance, enter NOW and see your work recognised and rewarded nationally. Entries close 31 October 2023.

 

The new awards will showcase the sustainable achievements of the end-to-end steel supply chain across two broad focus areas:

•          the use of steel in building and construction projects.

•          company steel sustainability initiatives.

 

The awards are open to everyone in the steel supply chain eg, architects, designers, engineers, steel manufacturers, distributors, fabricators, processors, builders or constructors.

 

Categories

The awards will feature four categories, with a fifth presented if warranted to recognise an overall exemplary entry. Winners will be announced online in early 2024.

The categories are:

 

  • Large projects ($10m or over)

Use of steel in design and construction projects for sustainable impact (new build or refurbishment).

 

 

 

 

  • Small projects (less than $10m)

Use of steel in design and construction projects for sustainable impact (new build or refurbishment).

 

  • Company sustainability initiatives (large business, 75-or-more full-time employees)

A company- specific, steel related initiative that has resulted in positive sustainable impact.

 

  • Company sustainability initiative (small business, less than 75 full-time employees)

A company- specific, steel related initiative that has resulted in positive sustainable impact.

 

  • Judges award

An award if warranted recognising an overall exemplary entry.

 

Conditions

For categories 1 and 2 steel must have been fabricated or processed in Australia and sourced from predominantly Australian-made steel (where such steel is produced in Australia) to qualify.

 

Entries for categories 3 and 4 must be submitted by an Australian company (holds ABN) that provides steel-related services or products including research and development in steel related solutions.

 

The application fee of $450 is payable at the point of submitting your entry. Costs associated with preparing an entry are the responsibility of the applicant.

Climate change accelerates emergence of insects in Alpine region

Researchers at La Trobe University’s Centre for Freshwater Ecosystems have exposed the hidden consequences of climate change on Alpine stream ecosystems, which could see an earlier emergence of insects. The study, led by Senior Lecturer in Environment and Genetics Dr Michael Shackleton, focused on streams around Falls Creek and projected significant alterations in water temperatures from climate warming and its impact on aquatic life. It was found that the rate at which temperature accumulates over the years will increase, which likely influences how organisms grow and develop. “These shifts may have significant impacts on aquatic organisms, particularly those emerging from…
