We are committed to the goal where employee safety and health is fundamental to sustainability. A safe and healthy working environment for all employees is the number one priority for all of our members. Our policy on health and safety is supported through:

  • An accident-free workplace
  • Illness-free workplace
  • Healthy Workplace
  • Injury Free Workplace
  • Believe any work related uncertainty must be prevented
  • Management should responsible and accountable for Safety and health performance.
  • Employee engagement and training is essential.
  • Working safely should be a condition of employment.
  • Excellence in safety and health supports excellent business results.
  • Safety and health must be integrated into all business management processes.

We have gone without any lost time injuries or fatalities for many years. So we know that such performance requires excellence in all aspects of their operations. This excellence also produces superior business performance. Our Safety is also our success.

Our environmental policy includes commitments to:

  • Employee consultation and training
  • Assessment of our activities and product-related environmental impacts to identify targets for continuous improvement; and
  • Legal compliance and due consideration of other stakeholder environmental requirements.
  • Ensuring world-class safety performance
  • Supporting the application of steel in products that reduce life cycle CO2 emissions.
  • Promoting life-cycle thinking and intelligent product design to allow for dematerialisation and expanded reuse
  • Improving end-of-life steel product recovery and recycling rates.

We believe that we are taking appropriate steps to contribute to sound environmental practices, covering not only the manufacture and supply of our products but also positive measures to establish and build on good working practices within our various office locations. We commence a improve mental programme every year to encourage employees, who will act as local area champions, to promote our environmental responsibilities within their own offices and which will target issues such as efficiencies and reductions in energy and water consumption, and waste management, further reducing the environmental footprint of steel making.

Steel has enabled our modern way of life. It has helped lift societies out of poverty, spurring economic growth, and continues to do so around the world today.
Iron, steel’s precursor, fuelled the industrial revolution starting in 1750, enabling manufacturing equipment in factories and rail transport. Our Most Modern plant of Galvanising, which is itself a Contribution to power sector, this set off a second North East industrial revolution, and was a huge step to sustained economic growth of the region.

Today, steel is one of the most common materials in the world. We rely on it for our housing, transport, food and water supply, energy production, tools and healthcare. Nearly everything around us is either made of steel or manufactured by equipment made of steel.
Steel is inextricably linked with economic growth and prosperity. Developing societies require steel to build new roads, railway lines, buildings and bridges. They also need it to lay new pipelines for gas, water and sanitation and to build factories and machinery.

Once basic infrastructure needs are met and GDP continues to raise, the demand for consumer goods such as washing machines and refrigerators increases, as does the need for mobility via trains, buses and automobiles – all of which require steel for their production and related infrastructure (stations and fuelling). Urbanisation is also enabled by steel – e.g. allowing for high-rise buildings.

Steel will continue to be needed in both developed and developing State in advanced and new applications that support sustainable development and thereby, a green economy.

We have many challenges to overcome as a global society. We are faced with resource shortages, water and land stress, environmental degradation and climate change. There are also many needs to be met – from poverty eradication to mitigation of natural disasters. The challenges are magnified by a population set to grow from the present 7 to 9 billion by 2050, accompanied by rapid urbanisation.

It is clear that things cannot go on as they have, and that we must transition to a green economy in which economic growth and environmental and social responsibility work hand in hand.

We believe that sustainable development must meet the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. Within this, a green economy delivers prosperity for all nations, wealthy and poor alike, while preserving and enhancing the planet’s resources.

The transition to a green economy is already underway and presents countless opportunities for positive change. Steel has an essential role to play in this transition and in sustaining a green economy. Steel is critical to the sectors and technologies that will enable and drive a green economy.

The steel industry employs more than 2 million people directly around the world, with a further 2 million contractors and 4 million in supporting industries. Considering steel’s position as the key product supplier to industries such as automotive, construction, transport, power and machine goods, the steel industry is at the source of employment for many more millions of people.

Global steel use has grown more than seven-fold since 1950. By 2050, steel use is projected to increase by 1.5 times that of present levels, to meet the needs of our growing global population.

In order to build the strong, healthy and safe communities we want for our team members and guests, we work closely with partners and organizations. In fact, we’ve challenged ourselves to meet corporate responsibility goals in the areas of education, sustainability, team member well-being and volunteerism. These goals will be our road map in the years to come.
