We recognise that we have a responsibility to protect local biodiversity and ecosystems in the environments where we work.
We use the land around our steel plants and mines sensitively, reducing our impact on the local environment wherever possible.
Where we have new mining or steel projects, we carry out detailed environmental and social impact assessments that take into account the loss or degradation of ecosystems and habitats, the impact on local communities, and water and soil erosion. For mining projects, we establish environmental management plans covering both the life of the mine and what happens to the land afterwards.
We have a number of reforestation projects being implemented adjacent to our operations in Kazakhstan, Romania, Spain and Ukraine.
