Product stewardship

Product stewardship means understanding the life cycle of the metals and minerals we produce, including the safe production, use and disposal of metal and mineral products as the need for them continues in society.

Increasingly, producers have both individual and joint responsibility with other stakeholders to ensure that products are managed safely across their life cycles.  Our product stewardship work allows us to improve our understanding of the health, safety and environmental implications of the use of our products. Our product stewardship strategy emphasizes the importance of understanding threats and opportunities in the market, and the importance of engagement with key stakeholders including customers, suppliers, regulators and communities. It means better understanding and taking responsibility for our iron ore products, from their discovery and mining, production, use and management at end of life.
