Use steel better: Environmental benefits with SSAB's steels

The core of SSAB’s business is to develop and produce Advanced High-Strength Steels (AHSS) and Quenched & Tempered (Q&T) steels that are stronger than ordinary steels. This in turn helps our customers to produce lighter and stronger products, thereby reducing their environmental footprint.

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.

SSAB in the circular economy

The circular economy refers to a transition from linear business models, in which products are manufactured from raw materials, used and then discarded, to circular business models, where products or parts are repaired, re-used, returned and recycled.
