UK’s steel structure specialist Severfield announced that it has strengthened commitment to reducing carbon emissions by signing up to SteelZero, a global initiative to speed up the transition to a net zero steel industry. By signing up, Severfield is making a public commitment to transition to procuring, specifying, or stocking 100% net zero steel by 2050, with certain interim targets to be achieved by 2030. Severfield Chief Executive Officer Mr Alan Dunsmore said “By signing up to SteelZero we are sending a powerful message, which we hope will help to shift global markets and policies towards the responsible production and sourcing of steel. We believe this is a significant step by Severfield in our commitment to creating a sustainable future for our business and the world around us.” SteelZero is led by international non-profit organisations, the Climate Group and Responsible Steel. This customer led initiative aims to drive a major shift in the global market for the responsible sourcing and production of steel. Targeting net zero steel from the demand-side of the supply chain makes this the first initiative of its kind, with the potential for it to have significant impact on investment, policy, manufacturing, and production in the construction sector.
