Reducing carbon footprint with steel sheet piles

Decarbonisation is the most important aspect of ArcelorMittal’s long-term strategy.

We are aligning with the Paris Agreement’s goals and the European Green Deal by committing to reduce European CO2 emissions by 30% by 2030 and be carbon neutral by 2050. Our new brand, XCarb™ is designed to bring together all of ArcelorMittal’s reduced, low and zero-carbon products and steelmaking activities.

The new EcoSheetPile™ Plus brand, essential part of the XCarb™ recycled and renewably produced initiative, is based on the Electric Arc Furnace (EAF) route using 100% recycled material and additionally uses 100% renewable electricity. This allows the production of the new EcoSheetPile™ Plus range with a further reduced carbon footprint of about 20% compared to EcoSheetPile™ range, and much more when compared with the predominant conventional steelmaking*. It comes also with a ‘Guarantee of Origin’ certifying the renewable sources for the electricity, audited by an external third party.
