The European steel industry has halved its CO2 emissions since 1960.

Steel production is energy intensive.

However, the steel industry uses advanced technologies and techniques to increase production yield rates, reduce its energy requirements, and facilitate the use of by-products. The most efficient steel companies have halved their energy consumption per tonne of steel since 1960.

The European steel industry is committed to continually reducing energy use and emissions.


CO2 emissions from a standard steel can are today 30% lower than 15 years ago.
