United States Steel Corporation has announced environmental product declarations (EPDs) across three key offerings, including Hot-Rolled, Cold-Rolled and Corrosion-Resistant flat-rolled products where the steel has been melted at Big River Steel Works. The EPDs provide quantifiable, independent, and audited environmental data on these core products. These enhanced disclosures are valid for five years and equip U. S. Steel customers with objective information about the life-cycle impacts and emissions of steel products, enabling them to select more sustainable products for their manufacturing. These EPDs represent a step forward in the journey to measure our product carbon footprint.
“We are thrilled to have secured EPDs on our three major flat-rolled steel coil products, representing all products melted at Big River Steel Works. This development unlocks substantial value to our customers who want to be more informed about their supply chain’s environmental impact,” said Kenneth E. Jaycox, Senior Vice President and Chief Commercial Officer for U. S. Steel. “Presenting transparent and data-backed validation of our products empowers our customers to make more informed and sustainable decisions.”
Certified and audited by the American Society for Testing and Materials, these EPDs provide a more holistic story of the environmental impact of each product in a single, comprehensive report to better inform transparent, sustainable decision-making. For example, they include information about a product’s impact on global warming potential, smog creation and water usage.
As outlined in the company’s 2022 Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) Report, sustainable steel is essential to lowering greenhouse gas emissions and underpins critical green technologies. U. S. Steel is focused on reducing emissions in meaningful ways and delivering profitable, differentiated, and sustainable steel solutions to create a greener planet that is Best for All.
