The scale of the Ebola virus disease outbreak in West Africa is unprecedented. The need for a coordinated and massive global response has been identified and international institutions, organisations, governments, non-governmental organisations, and the private sector are mobilising as part of these efforts. In August 2014, ArcelorMittal initiated the forming of the “Ebola private sector mobilisation group” (EPSMG), a coalition of more than 80 companies to align private sector capability with the international Ebola response. Initially launched as a platform for dialogue amongst major mining companies operating in the affected countries, EPSMG now includes companies operating in a broad range of sectors, as well as 40 civil society/government bodies. ArcelorMittal continues to chair the group.
