As a member of IBU- Institut für Bau Umwelt, ArcelorMittal has decided to implement a large program of construction product EPDs in order to demonstrate their best in class performances.

Among its large product offer, products and solutions EPDs already include:

  • Organic Coated Steels, known as Granite® range, which have also received ECCA Premium® labelling including sustainable criteria. All Granite® are produced heavy metal free.
  • European sections range.
  • Construction solutions like Mineral wool sandwich panels.
  • Combination of High strength steels and Magnelis® for “Best in class” guardrails systems.

Other construction products & solutions EPDs will also be at available in the upcoming months.

Sustainable design and material selection for sustainable construction are already of major importance for designers, which is why ArcelorMittal is willing to demonstrate the key assets of its construction products.

Product Sustainability

ArcelorMittal’s core values consist of “Safe Sustainable Steel”. Therefore, it is of major importance for us to provide steel products and solutions that take into account sustainability performances.

The United Nations’ 1987 Brundtland Commission Report “our Common Future” states the following: Well-designed ecosystem conservation contributes to the predominant' goals of sustainable development in a number of ways… And thus, the Sustainability Development concept was born.

As a matter of fact, a sustainable product focuses on its global environmental footprint, which means balancing between economic, ecologic and technical factors. Carbon emission, recycled content and also resource efficiency must be considered at every stage of a modern construction.

The EPD - Environmental Product Declaration, established in accordance with European Standard, enables to assess and declare a product's environmental impacts all along its life cycle.

Establishing a construction product's life cycle means that companies must look at the entire ‘life’ of a product (known as “cradle to grave” approach) including: raw material extraction, manufacturing, distribution, erection on site, use phase of the building, as well as end of life including dismantling and recycling.

This holistic approach is complex, as there are many stages that need to be measured and parameters that need to be considered. It is well acknowledged that steel is one of the most sustainable materials for construction, as well as most effectively recycled.
