The steel industry produces 3.6 billion metric tons of CO2 each year, accounting for 7-10% of global carbon emissions.

The global steel industry aspires to be carbon neutral by 2050-60.

Demand for steel is projected to increase by 25% by 2050.

Steel is 100% recyclable.


The steel industry is an essential component of modern society, producing the most widely used metal on earth. With the growing concern over climate change, transitioning to low-carbon production processes is critical for both the steel industry and the planet’s sustainability. According to the Energy and Climate Intelligence Unit over 130 countries have committed to becoming carbon neutral by 2050. They include the 27-nation European Union, which has proposed a “Fit by 55” legislative package aimed at reducing greenhouse gas emission by at least 55 percent by 2030.


We are committed to helping our clients navigate the complex and challenging task of decarbonizing the iron and steel industry. With our extensive experience, expertise, and cross-sector capabilities, we offer unique pathways to accelerate the decarbonization of steel production and increase sustainability up and down the value chain. Our experts work closely with steelmakers to identify opportunities for reducing carbon emissions throughout the value chain, from the mining of raw materials to the final production of steel products.

A tale of three scopes: Part 2

Matthew Tutty
In addition to scope 1 (direct emissions) and scope 2 (purchased electricity, heat, and steam), many organizations now have scope 3 emissions reduction targets in their climate change strategies.

A tale of three scopes: Part 1

Matthew Tutty
There is growing recognition of the significance of value chain emissions, known as scope 3 emissions, in the climate change strategies of metals and mining organizations.
