ResponsibleSteel is a voluntary steel industry initiative that has developed a standard for the responsible sourcing and production of steel. ArcelorMittal has played a key role in establishing this standard since 2015. The German production sites in Bremen, Bottrop and Eisenhüttenstadt have already received the certification standard. The next step is the first repeat test and re-certification for ArcelorMittal Bremen with the two locations.ResponsibleSteel is a certification system that collects data along the entire value chain. The goal: End users of steel must be able to tell whether the steel products they buy have been manufactured responsibly. Environmental protection and CO2 neutrality are relevant factors of this new certification, in addition to working conditions, raw material efficiency and waste avoidance, but also compliance with human rights and the positive influence on local communities.The certification company for management systems GUTcert from Berlin will also carry out the repeat test for recertification according to the ResponsibleSteel ™ standard.ArcelorMittal Bremen is a successful and high-performance production plant of the ArcelorMittal Group, the world's leading steel and mining group. With its innovative and high-quality flat steel products, the location also makes a significant contribution to mastering the climate and energy policy challenges of our time.
