The use of sustainable materials in modern Australian building construction is no longer a negotiable. Structurally efficient buildings that maximise resources and make the most of usable space now have an essential role to play in creating green cities that citizens can use now and into the future.
InfraBuild is redefining steel as a green building material and is helping companies everywhere improve the sustainability credentials of its projects.
InfraBuild is dedicated to conducting our business to global environmental, social and commercial standards. Our commitment to the environment includes optimising the eco-efficiency of our products through the product life-cycle. This means increasing resource and energy efficiencies and the use of sustainably generated energy from GFG Alliance’s SIMEC Energy Australia in the production and distribution of our products, as well as during the use of steel products.
We are committed to the role played by steel in the circular economy, including the promotion of the recovery, reuse and recycling of steel and other products.
InfraBuild’s Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs) are independently verified and are premier contributors to our holistic commitment to the environmentally sustainable manufacture and application of our products. Recognising our customers’ need and the increasing demand for standardisation and greater transparency around environmental performance, InfraBuild is proud to publish the sustainability credentials of our supply chain and products.

- Hot Rolled Structural and Merchant Bar
- Reinforcing Rod, Bar and Wire
