ArcelorMittal has today unveiled a new approach to sustainability reporting, providing stakeholders with a rolling series of updates on the company’s performance.
A detailed sustainability section on corporate.arcelormittal.com replaces the annual sustainability report, in line with best practice in reporting.
Readers can filter content to focus on specific areas of interest, for example how ArcelorMittal is helping to accelerate sustainable lifestyles through our products, or the progress the company is making in becoming a ‘trusted user of air, land and water’. Case studies, news stories and in-depth data are also available on the new webpages.
Today’s launch comes as part of a new, two-fold approach to sustainability reporting which includes:
- reporting on our sustainability performance and progress within the company’s Annual review – a first big step towards integrated reporting. Previously, separate reports were published on the company’s financial performance, and corporate responsibility performance. This has enabled us to enhance our sustainability reporting by tying it to our operational performance segment by segment, as well as by each of ArcelorMittal’s 10 sustainable development outcomes.
- making the transition to continuous reporting on sustainable development. This will keep stakeholders up to date with the latest news, blogs and stories of how we are pursuing our 10 outcomes. In addition to ongoing reporting, a quarterly review from ArcelorMittal’s senior management will be published, on the challenges faced, as well as highlighting the successes of the past three months.
Dr Alan Knight, general manager, corporate responsibility at ArcelorMittal said: “This is a big step forward for us in how we tell our stakeholders what we’re doing about our material issues. Our new approach to sustainability reporting means we’re making it easier for people to follow the progress on our 10 outcomes, by providing all our updates in one place. And with the launch of our new annual review later this week, we’ll be making the connection between our sustainable development performance and our operational performance, for the first time”.
