Our sustainability approach

We strive to create a stronger, lighter and more sustainable world. Sustainability is a key business driver for both us and our customers. We want to be the first to place fossil-free steel on the market by 2026 and become fossil-free in our own operations by 2045. We are committed to contributing to long-term sustainable development, according to the UN Sustainable Development Goals and the Paris Agreement.
