The European Steel Association (EUROFER) has published the first of its Green Deal on Steel video series, exploring how steel could make the transition to becoming central to the low-carbon, circular economy by 2050, under the right conditions.
The EU launched its Green Deal for Europe in late 2019, and has made the Green Deal an integral part of its plan to relaunch the European economy in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.
EUROFER is convinced that a Green Deal on Steel could be a flagship for the wider EU Green Deal. The European steel sector is one of the most advanced industries in terms of its forward planning for its green transition.
EUROFER has set out a series of pathways towards reaching its climate change commitments, including mapping out the pathways the sector will eventually be able to go down to dramatically reduce its emissions over the next 30 years.

This welcome move comes in response to worsening challenges in the global steel market, where carbon-intensive steel imports originating from excess capacity are inundating the EU market, posing a risk to the sustainability of the European steel industry, says the European Steel Association.
