ArcelorMittal has recently launched a new four-part series of its “Futurising” podcast that focuses on the future of the steel industry and the challenges and opportunities facing ArcelorMittal as it transitions to low-carbon steelmaking, and ultimately net zero.
The podcasts see Tom Cheesewright discuss ArcelorMittal’s goals to decarbonise by 2050 with members of the Company’s executive management team who are intimately involved in shaping and supporting aspects of the Company’s vision to reach net zero.
The launch of the podcast is part of a wider conversation around ArcelorMittal’s decarbonisation efforts and ties in with the Company’s target to reduce the carbon intensity of the steel it produces by 25% by 2030, and to reach net zero by 2050. The steel industry is experiencing a period of significant and urgent transition as the reduction of carbon emissions becomes an immediate priority.
Nicola Davidson, VP, head of corporate communications and corporate responsibility said:
“What a lot of people don’t understand is just how critical steel is for the energy transition and for the development of a low-carbon economy. All the solar farms, the wind farms, the electric vehicles, the low-carbon buildings – all of those are going to have steel at their core. There’s a real opportunity for steel in a low-carbon economy and that’s why it’s even more imperative that we manage to decarbonise and reach net zero.”
