SSAB is undertaking a strategic roadmap to revolutionize iron- and steelmaking, and to be the world’s first steel company to deliver iron ore-based fossil-free steel to the market in 2026. This includes an active leadership role in the HYBRIT joint venture initiative with LKAB and Vattenfall. The target is to be fossil free as a company by 2045.

Sustainability expedition

SSAB has embarked on a sustainability expedition that revolutionizes steel throughout its lifecycle – from steelmaking, to end use and 100% recyclability. Today, SSAB’s blast furnaces emit 7% less CO₂ than the EU average, but we are reaching for more.


Sustainable operations


Internal operational efficiency is a key focus in ensuring that our operations run as sustainably as possible. 


HYBRIT - First in fossil-free steel

SSAB will stepwise move toward a fossil-free steelmaking process through the HYBRIT initiative and eliminate other fossil fuel related emissions, making it possible to be fossil free within the entire operation. 


Sustainable Offering

For a stronger, lighter and more sustainable future: SSAB’s advanced high strength steels and quenched & tempered steels. 


Working together with our customers, SSAB continuously upgrades the material and design of applications. The benefits of upgrading to high-strength steel include reduced weight, improved fuel economy and extended product lifetime – all of which significantly contribute to reducing a product’s carbon footprint.

SSAB initiates study in Finland for fossil-free steel

SSAB starts a study in Finland for fossil-free steelmaking. In line with the HYBRIT project, SSAB is taking the next step for a completely fossil-free steel value chain. In partnership with Gasum, Neste and St1, SSAB is initiating an Energy4HYBRIT prefeasibility study supported by Business Finland to investigate the use of fossil-free energy sources, primarily biomaterial side-streams, to replace fossil fuels in certain steelmaking processes, for example rolling processes. The Raahe mill will act as SSAB’s pilot.
