ArcelorMittal is working on advanced technologies to redefine the steel making process and contribute positively to the global challenge of climate change. It is using its expertise in steel to find ways to operate more efficiently, to develop pioneering new processes and more sustainable practices, and to work in partnership with its customers and suppliers to help them achieve their environmental goals.
Some of ArcelorMittal's operations are already outstanding examples of industry leading best practice in social and environmental performance. Indeed some, like those in Brazil, have a long and proud track record in this area, and are regularly cited as role models for others. Likewise, its plants in Europe and the US have set the pace for the whole steel industry in carbon emission reductions. Reaching these high standards across the business is a priority for ArcelorMittal.
