Climate policy, energy policy and industrial policy are areas of specific interesting for SSAB, as well as issues related to public funding and efficient permit processes.

SSAB’s climate policy engagement is adopted by the CEO and is based on the corporate strategy, the Code of Conduct and SSAB’s support for the goals in the Paris Agreement.
During 2022, an assessment was made whether those industry organizations and member organizations of which SSAB is a member represent climate-related positions that SSAB stands behind and/or are in line with the goals in the Paris Agreement. The assessment shows that all member organizations meet SSAB’s expectations.
