We take our environment seriously: Since the mid-70s, we have succeeded in significantly reducing environmental degradation at our production plants.
For example, when it comes to water pollution control, we have drastically improved waste water quality by installing innovative technologies along with water circuits for significant portions of cooling and processing water. In the case of air pollution control, production-integrated measures have led to more efficient dust and pollution avoidance.
Thanks to more internal utilisation, care is now taken in waste and recycling management so that virtually no waste is generated. Iron-containing dusts are turned back into raw material because they can to a large extent be fed back into production. By-products such as slag sand are transferred to the cement industry where they render the cement more corrosion-resistant and save the CO2 that would otherwise be generated in its creation.
Having reached this level, we are not going to ease up. That is why we are constantly readjusting our environmental requirements to the current state-of-the-art and are continually redeveloping our environmental management system. We offer this solemn promise: our system will be evaluated and certified in accordance with the internationally recognised ISO 14001 standard.
We are one of the founding members of the “partnership of environmental concerns,”, an initiative of the federal state of Bremen for the exchange of information between environmentally engaged companies in Bremen and the federal state of Bremen. We are proud of our participation.
The environmental management system at ArcelorMittal’s Eisenhüttenstadt plant (certified in accordance with the internationally recognised ISO 14001 standard) and the accident safety management system (in accordance with the requirements of the Hazardous Incident Ordinance) are components of the Integrated Management System (IMS) at the plant. As part of its internal and external inspections, the effectiveness of this management system is regularly evaluated and confirmed.
ArcelorMittal Hamburg GmbH conducts responsible environmental protection in the course of its business activities in the modern production of steel. The basis for this is its environmental policy.
