Pittsburgh-based U.S. Steel recently issued a report titled “The Future of Steel” highlighting the company’s focus on sustainability.

The report outlines U.S. Steel’s plans, investments and progress in reducing its carbon footprint. The company is working toward its goal of net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050. The report highlights U. S. Steel’s partnerships with energy and technology companies, government agencies, nonprofits and universities to work on emissions reduction and develop carbon capture and utilization projects.

“U. S. Steel’s sustainability strategy is focused on our customers, our communities, our people and the planet,” said Christian Gianni, U. S. Steel senior vice president of sustainability and chief technology officer, in a press release. “To meet the needs of the market today and pave the way for the industry tomorrow, our team is constantly developing and improving innovative steel products.”

In 2023, U. S. Steel worked on a project to capture and mineralize carbon emissions generated from the company’s Gary Works blast furnaces. U.S. Steel also established a partnership with Molten Industries and the U.S. Department of Energy to move toward carbon-neutral steel production.

The report notes several projects on the horizon, including the installation of additional solar power for Big River Steel Works in Osceola, AR. The report also points to the ways U. S. Steel strengthened its workplace culture.

“U. S. Steel has a culture of caring that carries through how we treat our people all the way to the products we build,” said Erika Chan, U.S. Steel head of sustainability. “From our greenhouse gas emissions reductions and recycling progress to the strength of our workplace for everyone, including the LGBTQ+ community, veterans and more, U. S. Steel is committed to its values.”

Founded in 1901, United States Steel Corp. serves the automotive, construction, appliance, energy, containers and packaging industries with steel products. The company has an annual raw steelmaking capability of 22.4 million net tons. U. S. Steel has operations across the country and in Central Europe.
