Sustainability strategy and governance

Everything we do is aimed at creating a stronger, lighter and more sustainable world. Sustainability is a central driving force for both us and our customers. We want to be the first to launch fossil-free steel on the market, and to virtually eliminate carbon dioxide emissions from our own operations by around 2030. We are committed to contributing to long-term, sustainable development, in line with the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals and the Paris Agreement.
