Sustainable offering

One of the most important drivers in our sustainability efforts is the idea that sustainability and performance go hand in hand, relating to our customers’ products and processes. By managing our business in a sustainable way, not only can we achieve our ambition to become one of the most sustainable steel companies in the world, but we can improve our opportunity to deliver strong financial and operational results. To deliver on our sustainability goals, SSAB is developing new initiatives within our sustainable offering that help us both demonstrate clear benefits to our customers and strengthen our corporate story of creating partnerships for sustainability and performance.

Upgrade and save in CO₂ emissions with SSAB EcoUpgraded concept

The EcoUpgraded concept aims to identify applications that show promise for reducing CO2 emissions during use. Looking at each specific application, SSAB can compare the potential CO2 savings in its use phase to the CO2 emitted during production, thereby identifying products that would benefit the most from an upgrade to high-strength steel.
