Raising the Bar in Environmental Excellence

When it comes to the environment, simply complying with regulations is not enough we aim to exceed. That’s why we redefined our targets, adopting a 2030 deadline for reducing our CO2 footprint, energy use, water consumption and air emissions even further. We also committed to achieving carbon neutrality by 2050.

Environmental Responsibility

CO2 & Energy

Aperam is taking specific steps to reduce its carbon footprint and achieve energy savings.

CO2 & Energy

Our position as the industry leader in terms of CO2 footprint is one we intend to keep. That’s why we released a preliminary 2030 target of -15% reduction in CO2 intensity versus 2015. Our ambition to be carbon neutral by 2050 will require us to revise this medium-term target upward and we are striving to define a solid action plan for doing so.

Dust & Air Emissions

Air emissions and dust are key concerns of our stakeholders and neighbouring communities.

Dust & Air Emissions

Not satisfied with simply meeting local regulations, Aperam aims for the best performance and has set a new 20% reduction target for 2030 compared to 2018 emission intensity.

Waste & Recycling

As an endlessly reusable product, steel is an input in our industrial process and our end product.

Waste & Recycling

From recovering the metallic content of our melting shop dust to our commitment to becoming a zero-waste company, it’s no stretch to say that Aperam is a recycling champion.

Water

Aperam has defined a 40% reduction target in terms of water consumption in 2030 over 2015.

Water

Although much less water-intensive than mining companies (both in terms of intake quantity and quality of disposal), metallurgy plants have always withdrawn water from near-by waterways to cool down their equipment.
