Aperam supports the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals

Environment

In our forestry, located on hydric-stressed areas like our other plants, lowering water consumption and improving the quality of discharge are key elements of our environmental strategy.

More than 30% of Aperam’s energy comes from such renewable sources as biomass (charcoal) and, via pilot projects, wind and solar.

Aperam stands as a recycling champion: it integrates a maximum amount of recycled material (not only scraps) into its production and also takes good care to leverage waste and by-products, in line with our zero-waste target.

Our BioEnergia cultivated forest produces charcoal, which reduces the need to use coke and acts as an FSC certified carbon sink. Our plants are constantly reducing their energy consumption and also participate in our climate action plan.
