ResponsibleSteel Consultation on Additional GHG Requirements for Certification of Steel Products
This form serves to capture stakeholder feedback on the draft requirements, options and consultation questions posed by ResponsibleSteel in this document here (http://www.responsiblesteel.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/ResponsibleSteel-GHG-Requirements-for-Steel-Product-Certification-for-Consultation-Draft-1-0.pdf). The form is available until 31 October 2020.

These are challenging issues, and it is important that we get the requirements right since they will be key for achieving our vision of "maximising steel's contribution to a sustainable society". We are keen to receive your feedback on the draft proposals, as well as any suggestions on other options that are better placed to achieve our goals.

In the form below, we are posing questions to you related to each of the criteria, requirements, options and consultation questions in the draft document. The numbering in the form mirrors the numbering in the draft document. In your feedback, please be as constructive and precise as possible. At the very end of the form, there is a free text field where you can leave overarching comments.

Please feel free to spread the news about the ongoing consultation in your networks. We want to hear from as many different stakeholders as possible.

Thank you very much for your help in shaping these requirements!

Background (to the consultation): Do you have any comments on this section?
Objective: Do you have any comments on the objective?
Introduction: Do you have any comments on this section?
Consultation question. Do you support the focus on these two aspects of GHG emissions: A: emissions intensity for crude steel production; and B: GHG allocations to products? *
If you selected 'No', what would you change and why?
Criterion 8.6. Crude steel GHG emissions intensity: performance thresholds. Do you have any general comments on this Criterion?
8.6.1 Do you have any comments on this requirement?
Consultation question: Assuming there is some minimum threshold level of GHG emissions performance that must be achieved before steel products can be sold as ResponsibleSteel certified, do you support the general approach of specifying a threshold that takes account of the proportion of scrap used as an input material, as proposed?
Clear selection
If you selected 'no', what mechanism would you recommend in preference to this approach?
Consultation question: Assuming there is some minimum threshold level of GHG emissions performance that must be achieved before steel products can be sold as ResponsibleSteel certified, should the threshold level:
Clear selection
Consultation question: Are there more comprehensive, up-to-date and publicly accessible sources of data on the GHG emissions of steelmaking than those given in Annex 3, that could be used to specify the benchmark figures for the calculation of GHG emissions performance thresholds for carbon steel and/or high alloy steels, if the proposed approach is adopted in principle? If so, please provide references.
Consultation question on Criterion 8.7: Do you support the proposed approach in principle, that ResponsibleSteel should not require steelmakers to follow any single specific international standard for GHG accounting, but should instead focus on seeking agreement on specific accounting rules (currently 8.7.1 to 8.7.9) that should be applied in order to achieve consistency in the determination of the ResponsibleSteel crude steel GHG emissions intensity threshold?
Clear selection
If you selected 'no', what alternative approach do you recommend? And if you recommend that ResponsibleSteel should require steelmakers to follow a single specific international standard for GHG accounting, which one should be specified?
Criterion 8.7. Do you have any other general comments on this Criterion?
Consultation question on 8.7.1: Do you support the proposed approach of including Upstream indirect (Scope 3a), Energy indirect (Scope 2), and Direct (Scope 1) GHG emissions in the determination of the crude steel GHG emissions intensity performance for the site?
Clear selection
8.7.1. If you selected 'no', what would you change and why?
8.7.1. Do you have any other comments on how this requirement has been drafted?
8.7.2. Are you fine with the how this requirement has been drafted?
Clear selection
8.7.2. If you selected 'no', what would you change and why?
Consultation question on 8.7.2 (scrap): A: Should end of life scrap be assigned zero emissions, as proposed?
Clear selection
If you selected 'no', what would you propose as an alternative, and why?
Consultation question on 8.7.2. (scrap): B: Should manufacturing scrap be treated as being neutral, as proposed?
Clear selection
If you selected 'no', what would you propose as an alternative, and why?
Consultation question on 8.7.2 (scrap): C: Should GHG emissions associated with the transportation of scrap be considered

Clear selection
If you selected 'no', what would you change and why?
