Environmental Policy

At Mesh & Bar we understand the responsibility we have for the effect our operations have on both the local and global environment.

In our pursuit for sustainable practices, we aim to source our steel products from Steel Mills which utilise scrap metal in their Electric Arc Furnaces and are accredited to the ISO 14001 Environmental Management Systems.

Similarly, these Steel Mills have procedure and practices that comply with the Green Building Council of Australia (GBCA). The GBCA is an organisation created to encourage sustainable production, design and fabrication in the use of steel as a building material.
