For our customers only: product-specific carbon footprint 

We are enabling our customers to move from CO2 reporting to CO2 management by providing a product-specific carbon footprint. Our customers will now find the carbon footprint of each stainless steel grade in their product certificates, alongside properties like yield strength, tensile strength, and elongation. This helps our customers reach their sustainability targets by providing them with the necessary information to make informed decisions.
