Having the right combination of academic qualifications and hands-on experience, we work closely with our customers to jointly discover ways of addressing their challenges. Our various collaborations with leading research centers and universities worldwide, contribute to new or further developed technologies for increased customer value.

USE. REUSE. REPEAT.

THAT’S SUSTAINABLE STEEL.

Your sustainability goals are our goals, too. Our aim is to lead the ongoing shift in our industry and earn your trust as a true partner when it comes to innovative materials solutions.

To achieve this, we’ve set four sustainability goals for 2030, in line with the UN’s Sustainability Goals and the Paris Climate Accord. They guide all aspects of our approach to steel- making, including the products and services we offer.

OUR SUSTAINABILITY GOALS FOR 2030

SUSTAINABLE MANUFACTURING

For us, a sustainable steel process means that we re-use the steel over and over again. We also rely on highly efficient processes powered by a mix of fossil-free, carbon-reduced or our own residual energy sources. Examples from our mill in Sandviken, Sweden include:

  • 84% recycled material: Our steel is made of 84% secondary raw material content and we’re striving to reach 90%. This ties in with our overall goal of promoting a circular system.
  • Recycled heat exchangers: With certain customers, such as those using heat exchanger tube, we are making special agreements to help disassemble and reuse the material.
  • Switching to biodiesel: We switched 150 diesel-powered forklifts from normal diesel to biodiesel, reducing CO2emissions by 2,200 tonnes per year.
  • Using residual heating: We recycle the residual heat from our steel mill to heat buildings and will be independent of oil for heating all buildings by 2023.
  • Fossil-free energy: We source a large amount of electricity from the Nordic electricity grid, which is based on a mix of fossil-free hydro, wind, solar or nuclear power.
