ArcelorMittal Europe - Tubular Products Sustainability Report 2023: Our Progress and Commitment

At ArcelorMittal Europe - Tubular Products, sustainability is a core principle that guides our operations and strategies. In our 2023 Sustainability Report, we highlight our significant strides towards a more sustainable future, focusing on environmental impact reduction, health and safety advancements, and social responsibility.

Recognizing the critical role  steel production plays in global carbon emissions, we have committed to achieving net-zero carbon emissions by 2050. The steelmaking industry accounts for 7-9% of total carbon emissions worldwide, with each tonne of steel produced in a blast furnace emitting approximately 2.1 tonnes of CO2. To address this, we have embarked on an ambitious roadmap that includes efficiency improvements from 2018 to 2022, which focus on enhancing production processes to reduce energy and resource consumption. Moving forward, from 2024 to 2030, we will implement specific projects to switch from gas to electricity in various facilities, amongst other actions, significantly cutting down our carbon footprint. By 2030, we aim to source a substantial portion of our electricity from renewable sources, further reducing our emissions.

Our commitment to environmental stewardship extends to innovating with low-carbon steel tubes. These products, such as structural square and rectangular tubes, are essential in applications ranging from building structures to renewable energy installations like solar panels and wind turbines. By developing low-carbon solutions, we support the transition towards greener construction materials, helping to decrease the embedded carbon in the built environment.

Equally important is our dedication to the health and safety of our employees. At ArcelorMittal Europe - Tubular Products, our goal is to achieve a workplace free of accidents. This commitment is reflected in our comprehensive Health & Safety programs which emphasize leadership engagement, where management actively interacts with all employees to foster a safety-first culture. Additionally, we ensure that every employee is equipped with the necessary skills and knowledge to perform their tasks safely, and we adhere to all applicable safety regulations, striving to exceed these standards to create a secure working environment.

The dedication to social responsibility further strengthens our overall mission. We extend our efforts to various initiatives aimed at enhancing employee well-being and promoting diversity. Ongoing projects include leadership development programs, gender equality efforts, and holistic health and wellness campaigns, demonstrating our commitment to fostering a supportive and inclusive workplace.

The ArcelorMittal Europe - Tubular Products Sustainability Report 2023 underscores our unwavering commitment to sustainability, health and safety, and social responsibility. Through innovative products, strategic environmental initiatives, and a focus on our people, we are paving the way towards a sustainable future for the steel industry and beyond.
