Why you should work with us!

Decarbonizing the steelmaking process is non-negotiable if the industry wants to successfully transition from being one of the highest CO2 emitters to a sustainable, fossil-free actor in the global value chain. Although SSAB is already one of the world’s most CO2-efficient steel companies, their new pioneering approach to steel production is leading the way to providing quality steel with zero CO2 emissions.

A growing global population, increasingly higher standards of living, and greater urbanization are trends that are driving the rise in global steel demand. However, the significant carbon footprint of the steel industry is a reality for Europe and the rest of the world, putting pressure on the industry to innovate and provide sustainable steel to meet current and future demand. The challenge is already here: while the steel recycling rate is an impressive 90% or so in many parts of the world, the steel scrap available meets just 25% of global demand.
