Caring For Our Environment

“Humanity has the ability to make development sustainable - to ensure that it meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs...”

World Commission on Environment & Development, Burndland Commission - “Our Common Future”

STEEL FACT

  • Steel is the most recycled material in the world--including nearly 70 million tons in the U.S. alone in 2006. More steel is recycled annually than all other materials, including aluminum, glass, and paper combined.
  • The US steel industry has reduced its energy intensity/ton of steel shipped by 29% since 1990.
  • Greenhouse Gas Emissions: GHG/ton of steel shipped have been reduced by nearly 45% since 1975.
  • Air and water emissions are 90% lower today than 10 years ago.
  • More than 95 percent of the water used for steelmaking is recycled--often returning water cleaner than when taken from its source.
  • Virtually all hazardous waste once generated by the steel industry is now being recycled for recovery for beneficial use.
  • The North American steel industry has reduced energy demands while still increasing production.
