The challenge we face
The world faces enormous challenges in the 21st century: from climate change to increasing pressures on natural resources, from the lifestyle expectations of those in the developed world to tackling poverty at the base of the pyramid in emerging markets. These issues have a direct impact on businesses as well as governments, civil society, and individuals.
Businesses are expected to report more openly, act more responsibly, protect the environment, and support their local communities. All of these factors pose risks to companies as large as ours if we fail to manage them. But they also present us with enormous opportunities from the commercial potential of new greener products to the innovation potential of a new generation of people entering our industry.

Build durable solar roofs with Granite® organic coated steels16 November 2022
With the demand for electricity growing rapidly, solar energy production via photovoltaic (PV) modules installed on roofs is becoming a solution of choice for developers.Prepainted steel roofing solutions are light, durable, and made from eco-friendly materials. They are also able to sustain the loads required for PV module installation. It's no wonder that installing solar PV systems on steel roofs is increasingly common.However, some precautions should be taken with PV modules, such as ensuring enough space between the module and the organic coated steel surface to enable water drainage and ventilation. With this condition fulfilled, prepainted steels are the preferred material for roofs with PV modules - whatever the type of building.Product news
ArcelorMittal - a key partner for the wind industry9 November 2022
The ability to produce green energy on a massive scale is a key challenge for a sustainable future and has become a high priority in many countries. According to the IEA’s World Energy Outlook 2020, renewable sources of energy are expected to provide almost 40% of the global electricity supply by 2030, and wind will be one of the main contributors.To meet the demand for clean energy, the quantity of wind turbines that must be produced and installed each year will continue to increase at a very high rate. Achieving this production level requires a strong supply chain and high-quality, innovative products. ArcelorMittal has recently published a renewed edition of its 'Steel solutions for the global wind energy industry' brochure, encompassing the products and services of the group’s entities, all useful contact details – and a focus on its XCarb® carbon reduced steel offer.Product news
We are committed to leading the way in which the world views steel and championing steel’s role in creating high quality, sustainable lifestyles for people all over the world.
Leading the way with 10 sustainable development outcomes
Our new sustainable development framework focusses on 10 outcomes we need to achieve for steel to be one of the world's most sustainable materials. Pursuing these outcomes, a result of both analysis and consultation, allows us to be better prepared to respond to long-term trends and manage our stakeholders’ expectations more effectively.
Environmental impacts of our products
Our local communities and stakeholders trust us to share the vital resources of air, land, and water because we operate responsibly and transparently, and we have clearly improved our impact.
We understand these impacts and work collaboratively to protect and enhance the natural capital we and our communities and partners rely on.
Developing greener steel products
Commercial designers and manufacturers, as well as end-users, choose steel for products that need strength and durability. They make that choice because they understand steel contributes to more a sustainable lifestyle.
Therefore, we are continuously designing more energy-efficient products using materials that can be re-used and recycled and produced using fewer resources and without negative consequences for the environment or society.
