The Greif UK commercial team was invited to visit steel supplier Tata Steel‘s manufacturing facility in Port Talbot in South Wales in UK in November 2022. The Greif team began with observing raw materials, viewing every manufacturing stage, and then witnessing the results of finished products. The visit was educational in demonstrating all production phases of steelmaking. It provided valuable insight for how Greif can achieve our Protecting Our Future mission and reduce the carbon footprint of our value chain.Tata Steel discussed its sustainability goals with our Greif team, including the aim to reduce its CO2 output by 30% by 2030 and become a carbon-neutral steelmaker by 2045.
