Across the company, we are finding ways to make the steelmaking processes more sustainable, energy efficient and less carbon intensive. Our efforts range from individual actions to be more efficient in our manufacturing processes to large-scale investments in transformative technologies. Complementing the work we’re doing within our operations, the very steel we produce is also being used in sustainable applications: renewable energy systems and fuel-efficient vehicles, for example.
Annual Sustainable Development Reporting is a key part of our commitment to transparency and open dialogue with our stakeholders. Year over year we are creating value as we progress against our 10 Sustainable Development Outcomes.
Leadership is an integral part of ArcelorMittal Dofasco: it is one of our three core values of sustainability, quality and leadership, which shape every aspect of our corporate behavior and help us meet our promise of ‘transforming tomorrow’.
ArcelorMittal Dofasco’s approximately 5,000 employees make more than 100 grades of steel in Hamilton which is used in the automotive, distribution, construction and manufacturing, tubular and consumer and industrial packaging sectors. Our operations distributed billions of dollars in direct economic value in 2018 and made investments of approximately $2 million in our local communities.
Steel is one of the world’s most sustainable materials because it’s strong, flexible and can be endlessly recycled. Innovative steel products are helping to reduce carbon emissions in vehicles and buildings, construct smarter cities and generate renewable energy.
We have an opportunity — and responsibility — to lead the way in ensuring steel fulfils its potential as an essential material of the future.
