British Steel backs structural steel sector’s decarbonisation roadmap

British Steel has endorsed the UK structural steelwork roadmap to net zero.

The roadmap, launched by the British Constructional Steel Association (BCSA), sets out how the sector will decarbonise to meet the UK net-zero carbon target by 2050.

It was developed in partnership with a number of companies, including British Steel, and Environment and Sustainability Director Lee Adcock said: “We were pleased to play an active role in the creation of this ambitious roadmap. We welcome its publication and will keep working closely with our customers to reduce emissions in agreed timescales.”

In October British Steel unveiled its Low-Carbon Roadmap, outlining its commitment to achieving net-zero status through the biggest transformation in its history.

The company has pledged to invest in a range of technologies to deliver net-zero steel by 2050, and significantly reduce its CO2 intensity by 2030 and 2035.

Its roadmap, which is in line with UK commitments to the Paris Agreement, will see the business adopt a science-based target in order to validate its reductions.
