Sustainable development is at the heart of our purpose; inventing smarter steels for a better world.

How can we live our modern lives without steel? The answer is, we can't. Steel is strong, durable, flexible and is the most easily recycled material - perfect for a circular economy. But it is essential that the next chapter in our story does not compromise future generations. Steel needs to evolve to become smarter and more sustainable.

The eyes of the world are focused on climate. As a steel company, we want to be part of the solution to our current dilemma. This means preparing for and responding to the most significant long-term environmental and social trends that are transforming the context in which we operate. We must listen carefully to our stakeholders, whether they are around the corner or around the world, and be listening for their growing expectations. We must also outline what we need to do now to protect and grow value for stakeholders in the future.

This means continuing to produce innovative steel products and solutions while maintaining operational standards that meet and exceed the expectations of customers and investors.

The integration of sustainable development into the business is essential in ensuring steel is the material of choice in the transition toward a circular and low-carbon economy.
