The social value of steel


We started a new project in 2014, working with two leading universities in France and Canada, to develop a methodology to assess the social value of steel along the whole value chain. This adds a social dimension to our existing expertise in lifecycle analysis, and aims to enable us to develop more meaningful and comprehensive information about the sustainability impacts of steel to our stakeholders, in particular governments, regulators and customers. We are sponsoring a doctoral student, who will carry out research at one of our European steel plants as well as with stakeholder focus groups, in order to develop the methodology.
