Continuing our Commitment

Continuing our Commitment

Last year, we published our first sustainability report, detailing our environmental, social, and governance efforts and highlighting what separates us from most steel companies around the world. We have continued to advance our sustainability efforts and public reporting over the last year.

We conducted a detailed assessment of our operations and set goals for greenhouse gas reduction that align with best-in-class industry standards. We published our first Task Force for Climate-related Disclosures (TCFD), detailing our strategy to address environmental risks and opportunities and a roadmap to achieve our GHG reduction targets. We completed ISO14001 certification for our major production facilities, with others to follow, ensuring uniform environmental management across our company. And we continue to set new goals that align with our culture of continuous improvement. 

Our mission is to be the preferred solutions provider for our customers in the transition to a low-carbon economy. This report shows the breadth of work done over the last year to meet that goal.  To find out more about our progress in the last year, download the 2022 Sustainability Report.
