The American Iron and Steel Institute (AISI) launched a redesign of the public policy section of its website (www.steel.org). According to AISI, the new design provides relevant information in a more easily accessible manner for website visitors interested in the policy positions of the American steel industry.
"With AISI increasingly focusing its efforts in the public policy arena, we felt that this was the time to take our public policy site to the next level," said Thomas J. Gibson, president and CEO, AISI. "We want visitors to use our site as a resource for the most up-to-date, pertinent policy information related to the domestic steel industry and believe that we have achieved this goal through the site’s redesign."
The site now provides a new section titled "Policy Resources" where visitors can view AISI policy analysis, steel fact sheets, AISI testimony, AISI-supported legislation, and other important resources related to the policy positions of the industry. In addition, the new site highlights the "Take Action" feature where visitors can participate in grassroots-level activities, such as contacting their elected officials, and review issues, legislation, and a comprehensive election guide.
One notable change to the site is that AISI’s policy agenda can now be viewed by individual policy issue, making it more user-friendly. AISI has also used images and facts from its successful New Steel Campaign to highlight important messages about the steel industry. This includes highlighting the industry’s "Clean Little Secret"—the domestic steel industry is one of the most energy efficient steel industries in the world, voluntarily reducing its energy usage by 29 percent since 1990 and that steel is the most recycled material in the world.
