Metallurgy uses immense energy and hazardous substances to transform raw materials into the precise blend of alloys required by our clients. In turn, these Alloys can be used in making useful, affordable and long-lasting products, including vehicles and buildings, for a sustainable way of life.
Although Aperam is an industry leader in sustainability, we continue to strive to improve. With our new 2030 milestones to be set in terms of energy, CO2, air and water, our goal is to minimize the impact our production processes have on the environment and our neighbours.

We are proud to be providing the world’s “greenest stainless steel”.

The 2030 objectives against the 2015 baseline are:

  • -15% CO2 emissions,
  • -11% energy usage (electricity and natural gas),
  • -40% water intake,
  • -70% in dust emissions,
  • and target waste recycling rate >97%
