Danielle Vandermey The main sources of carbon emissions were identified as water wastage, manufacturing, and transportation.
Invest in new technology
The effect of the carbon tax is a real initiative to reduce emissions to increase profits
Steps can be taken to improve their efficiency towards daily operations
Introduce innovation 1. CORPORATE GOVERNANCE
The processes, procedures, policies and management structures used by BlueScope Steel to help manage the Greenhouse Challenge. Problems/Issues Corporate Governance Response materials not being managed as efficiently as they could be

transport system not as efficient. realignment needed

large environmental impact on land, air and water

creating a great deal of waste and noise

creating a great deal of GHG emissions

operations not structured effectively Major Problems: BACKGROUND Results Responses CSR Response Greenhouse Business Challenge & Carbon Footprint indirect/direct emissions
total GHG emissions = carbon footprint
social responsibility
reduce amount of energy used
effect on markets and climate change
effects on business of the responses by government to climate change Problems/Issues Main
problems/ issues
of Corporate Governance Internal control system to manage materials.
Implement computers in manufacturing process. Materials not being managed as efficiently as they could be. Main problems/issues
with Corporate
Governance of BlueScope Steel Transport system not as efficient. Realignment needed. Operations not structured effectively. Centralise operations. E.g. accounting department for whole of organisation, not just for individual production centre. Instead of trucks, use more trains. transportation emissions

and less trucks Reduce number of
deliveries and deliver more at a time Use
environmentally
friendly technology,
such as hybrid cars 2. OPERATIONS RESPONSE
How BlueScope Steel will go about lowering their direct and indirect emissions, and the physical steps required to do so. 3. PROTECT OUR BRAND - CSR RESPONSE
The ways in which BlueScope Steel will act responsibly, and their response to protect their brand and enhance the company's reputation. Operations Response high level of water wastage iron-making releases high
level carbon emissions production not very efficient High level of
water
wastage. Production not
very efficient. Main problems/issues with operations of BlueScope Steel Iron-making releases high level of carbon
emissions. Lower fresh water usage.
Use recycled water. Install more efficient technology that produces more
iron at a time. Produce more
outputs from
the number
of inputs. water wastage carbon emissions inefficient production TREND IMPACT TIMING NEXT H H M M L H H H H DA PPA DA IRON-MAKING

Aim is to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Will BlueScope Steel follow the terms of the Kyoto Protocol? 5. GLOBAL PRACTICES
Focuses on Australia's response to carbon emissions. Does BlueScope Steel's practices
align with those of the country? very expensive to buy steel

hard to recycle steel

limited worldwide availability of scrap

lack of public awareness of BlueScope's procedures Main problems/issues
with Corporate Social
Responsibility of
BlueScope Steel Very expensive
to
buy steel. Limited worldwide
availability of
scrap. Lack of public
awareness of

reuse most of
their steel. BlueScope
recycles 17-20%
of it's steel. BlueScope has
created a sustainability
website for public access. Major Problems limited scrap
