Stainless Steel is a highly durable material used in many qualified applications. Like all materials, its production and use affect the environment in many different ways. Assessing the overall environmental impact of products requires an integrated approach that considers the product over its entire life cycle - Life Cycle Assessment (LCA).
Like any other major industry, the stainless steels industry endeavours to reduce its operational CO2 emissions on an ongoing basis. worldstainless has issued a report to clarify what emissions exist and where they originate from.
Stainless steel is a champion of recycling. It is one of the key contributors stainless steel makes to sustainability.
worldstainless is a not-for-profit research and development association which was founded in 1996 as the International Stainless Steel Forum. Our vision is to sustain our world’s future with stainless steels.
