Empowering owners choices.

Adding health and amenity for the user.

Many people know that the colour of your roof can make a difference to your cooling bill and no less than five of the standard colours in the COLORBOND® steel range qualify as solar reflective (light coloured) roofing under the Green Star Design and As Built and Communities tools. But there‘s another way that COLORBOND® steel can help make your building more energy efficient. Every standard colour (except Night Sky®) in the COLORBOND® steel range features Thermatech® solar reflectance technology. Thermatech® technology is designed to reflect more of the sun‘s heat on hot sunny days, which can mean less dependence on air-conditioning, plus reduced heat stress for your roof. This makes COLORBOND® steel a good choice for your building, your wallet and our planet.

How we're assisting in resilient built environments.

Steel has a critical role to play in underpinning sustainable development. Steel is one of the most used5, recycled and therefore vital materials in our modern world. Whether it is for infrastructure, housing, transport systems, manufacturing or energy, steel will continue to play a vital role in meeting the challenge of transitioning to a more sustainable future.

Steel is central to a circular economy – one where society ensures resources and materials remain in use for as long as possible.

BlueScope is taking advantage of the opportunities that a circular economy presents. Advances in technology have led to product innovations such as lighter and stronger products, improved thermal efficiency and greater resistance to extreme weather and corrosion. These factors help extend the life of products such as COLORBOND® steel which conserves resources and energy that may otherwise be invested in products with a shorter life span.

The integrated nature of BlueScope’s supply chain, supported by BlueScope’s commitment to continuous improvement and pride in their role as a good corporate citizen, provides peace of mind to customers that they can depend on Australian made quality steel products. This is further enhanced by BlueScope’s EPDs covering several of their structural steel products and COLORBOND® steel. 

Sustainability outcomes associated with the product or service:
BlueScope’s EPDs cover structural and formable steel products such as welded beams, plate, hot rolled coil, and COLORBOND® steel, which may help your project achieve points under the Green Star system (refer Table 5, Page 11 COLORBOND® steel EPD).
