    Guaranteeing the greener packaging material

     

     

Sustainability, our N°1 commitment

When it comes to sustainability, steel is the best material of choice. Being magnetic, it can easily be collected and recycled. It does not lose any of its properties when being melted to create new steel products, regardless of the number of times steel is recycled.

“Steel is a permanent material, it always gets back to the production cycle after use without being altered. Steel is used and recovered in full.” says Stéphane Tondo - ArcelorMittal CMO Packaging and president of APEAL*.

And by keeping on developing innovative steel solutions and strengthening our commitment and efforts to work according to a circular economy model via various initiatives such as Responsible Steel, a non-profit organisation of which ArcelorMittal is a founding member and whose aim is to drive a more responsible future for the steel industry and build the first global multi-stakeholder certification program for the steel value chain, we are continuously making our steel even lighter, stronger, better… and greener!
