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 35% 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, an essential part of the ‘XCarb® recycled and renewably produced’ initiative for long products, is based on the Electric Arc Furnace (EAF) route using 100% recycled material and - additionally - 100% renewable electricity.
This allows for the production of the new EcoSheetPile™ Plus range with the unprecedented Global Warming Potential (A1-A3) of 0.37 tonne of CO2-eq per tonne of EcoSheetPile™ Plus produced.
The specific Environmental Product Declaration for EcoSheetPile™ Plus is based on a dedicated ‘Cradle-to-Gate with options’ life-cycle analysis. It was approved by an independent reviewer according to ISO 14025 and EN 15804 standards and published by the German Institut Bauen und Umwelt e.V. (IBU) official programme holder. It also comes with a Guarantee of Origin certifying the renewable electricity sources audited by an external third party.
