Sustainability strategy and targets
SSAB’s sustainability strategy is divided into three areas: Sustainable Offering, Sustainable Operations and Responsible Partner (Read more on p. 24). In 2017, SSAB increased the company’s ambitions for sustainability and set new objectives and targets.
|Area of Sustainability strategy||Sustainable offering||Sustainable operations||Responsible partner|
|Objective||10 Mtonne annual customer CO2 savings 2020||Fossil free 2045||Responsible partner|
|Description|| By using SSAB’s high-strength steels, customers can achieve CO2 savings during their end products’use-phase.
The earlier target was to reach the same CO2 savings targets by 2025, but since volumes for EcoUpgraded and Automotive Premium products have grown more than originally expected, the target was brought forward to 2020.
|Long term, SSAB will work toward a fossil-free steelmaking process through the HYBRIT initiative and by eliminating other fossil related emissions, with a goal to be fossil-free throughout our entire operation by 2045.||For SSAB, having a large impact on society means taking on a large responsibility. SSAB adheres to the highest standards as a responsible partner by taking responsibility for business ethics and responsible sourcing, as well as continuously strive to improve safety, diversity and employer attractiveness.|
