As a leading company in the steel industry and the biggest private employer in the province of East Flanders, ArcelorMittal Gent must set an example in many different areas of activity.
Over the years, our environmental performances have won us an impressive array of environmental awards, with four times winner of the FEB environmental Prize,  the Herman Devoldere Prize and the multiple granting of the Environmetal Charter.
ArcelorMittal Gent not only receives environmental awards, but it also awards prizes to meritorious students. Since 1995, every year ArcelorMittal Gent has presented environmental awards to the best theses that address environment-relevant issues in courses such as “Bio-engineering” and “Master of Science in Environmental Sanitation” at the University of Gent. ArcelorMittal Gent presents these environmental awards to stress the importance of environment-relevant research and wants to further encourage this kind of research in the future.
