REDUCE CLIMATE IMPACT
The steel industry currently accounts for about 10 percent of the world’s total CO2 emissions. Although most of these emissions originate from the actual production process, it is of the utmost importance that all actors – from producers and wholesalers to subcontractors and transporters – help reduce the sector’s climate impact.
A great deal has happened in recent years. Ever tougher requirements are set on documentation and traceability, and we are seeing how large steel mills devote a lot of effort and resources to developing fossil-free production. By working together and putting pressure on our partners, BE Group is also helping to accelerate this process.
BE Group has throughout the years been working actively with different sustainability efforts and has now started to map the business based on the Sustainable Development Goals in Agenda 2030. Of the 17 goals set by the UN, which range from the elimination of poverty and hunger to greater gender equality and sustainable economic growth, BE Group has selected six targets that are considered especially relevant to the Company’s operations. In addition to climate-related targets, such as combating climate change and promoting more sustainable consumption and production, the goals are about working for greater gender equality, decent working conditions and economic growth and creating peaceful and inclusive societies.
