Smulders joins SteelZero and makes a commitment to use, procure or specify 100% net zero steel by 2050.

Together with two other significant suppliers from the world of construction, architecture and engineering, Smulders is joining SteelZero. By committing to use 100% net zero steel by 2050, we are signaling the growing demand for net zero steel. The announcement highlights the increasing appetite from this sector to eliminating the carbon emissions associated with the built environment and renewable energy infrastructure.

Smulders joins twelve other SteelZero members, including Ørsted, which are driving the decarbonization of the steel industry in the construction and property and renewable energy sectors. The SteelZero programme was launched in December 2020.

Mike Peirce, Director of Corporate Partnerships of the Climate Group, said: “By pledging to use 100% net zero steel by 2050, these companies are signaling to the market that demand is growing, and are bringing us one step closer to net zero steel being available for use in property developments and offshore wind farms.”

Raf Iemants, Managing Director of Smulders said, “Technological pioneering and local community engagement are part of Smulders’ business philosophy. Over the past years, this combination has evolved into a strong engagement towards carbon footprint reduction, not only focusing on our own emissions but also willing to involve our supply chain partners. Therefore, Smulders is proud to join the SteelZero initiative and consequently contributing to evolving carbon neutrality within the steel industry and offshore wind sector.”
