A burning issue: decarbonising the global steel industry

Welcome to Spectrum – a sustainability focused newsletter that brings together insights from across our investment floor including our Responsibility Office and our stewardship business, EOS at Federated Hermes.

Steel is essential in today’s world, and it will be just as essential tomorrow – much of the technology to create a zero-carbon future, from wind turbines to mass transportation, will use steel in its construction. Yet steel production itself is a highly polluting activity.

In this issue of Spectrum, we look at the available options for steelmakers to decarbonise throughout their value chains and examine the issues around achieving a zero-carbon future for the industry.
