Leadership and advocacy
The ASI provides marketing and technical leadership to promote Australian-made steel as the preferred material to the building, construction, resources, and manufacturing industries, as well as policy advocacy to government.
It exists to represent the Australian steel industry and to support its future growth, so that the industry can maintain and create jobs and income for Australia, and provide the highest-quality certified steel products for Australians.
The ASI achieves this by ensuring that political and policy decision makers, industry, consumers, allied industries and professions, and other key stakeholders continue to recognise the strength, beauty and versatility of Australian steel, and the importance of maintaining and growing a strong steel industry sector.
The ASI acts as the focal point for the steel industry, providing leadership on all major strategic issues affecting the industry. It focuses particularly on economic, environmental and social sustainability matters, and works with government, the media and other associations to provide an independent voice for industry. This includes promoting the advantages of local content procurement in the nation’s interest, both to the client and to government.
The technical support arm of the ASI facilitates events and technical training at both shop floor vocational and degree qualified continuing professional development level, as well as case study seminars and awards. The ASI also publishes industry-leading journals based on the latest research.
The technical references provided through the ASI’s electronic online resources and library are amongst the most comprehensive in the southern hemisphere. With longstanding links to global research capability and other steel industry associations such as the World Steel Association, the ASI can offer a truly international solution.
