We take our corporate responsibility seriously
Steel plays an important role in every area of our daily lives. Each year, around 1,870 million tons of steel are produced and processed worldwide, 7.2 million tons of it by voestalpine. We are actively developing and applying environmentally-friendly steel manufacturing processes, as well as waste management measures and an active environmental protection policy.
We are researching into products which indirectly reduce CO₂, considering life cycle assessment (LCA) and encouraging a life cycle approach through its active involvement in working groups at EUROFER and the World Steel Association.
We meet our social obligations as a company through our comprehensive safety measures, a Group-wide health management system, and a wide variety of opportunities for continued professional development.
Since April 2019, voestalpine is a member of the initiative ResponsibleSteel and commits itself to the 12 principles. During the ongoing fiscal year, the biggest site in Linz will apply certification according to the ResponsibleSteel-standard, the creation of which experts of the voestalpine, alongside many other interested parties, were actively involved in.
