Mobile Alabama based SSAB Americas has released its Environmental Product Declarations results of its commercial steel and advanced high strength steel product lines in the US. UL Environment verified SSAB’s US EPDs as part of a six-month process that started with the development of applicable Life Cycle Assessments for associated SSAB facilities. Results show SSAB Americas EPDs are industry leading in lower environmental impacts when compared to the American Iron and Steel Institute steel industry data and the Buy Clean California Act threshold limits. SSAB’s EPDs release coincided with an announcement from the White House last week on its "Buy Clean" initiative to focus on the purchase of more environmentally sustainable products, including steel and concrete, for government-funded construction and other projects.As part of SSAB Americas on-going commitment to create a stronger, lighter and more sustainable world, the certified EPD results demonstrate the long-term beneficial focus of SSAB Americas environmental sustainability. It also provides a response to requests from our key stakeholders, including customers, suppliers and the political and investment communities about SSAB Americas-produced steel’s environmental impact.An EPD is an independently verified document that provides transparent, comparable information about the environmental impact of products from the lifecycle perspective.
