We are excited to present LIBERTY Steel Group’s second Sustainability Report. The report shares our strategy, provides data on our global impact, is open about the challenges we face and how we plan to address them, and outlines our approach to safety and the development of our people.
It is also full of great case studies showcasing the work that our people deliver every day, to help us along the way to a sustainable steel industry.
“LIBERTY Steel was founded on the principles of sustainability and social responsibility. As you will read our founding principles continue to light the way ahead, as we strive for the highest environmental, social and governance standards across all our global operations.”SANJEEV GUPTA
Our Environmental, Social and Governance Leads
Theuns Victor - Executive Director of the Chaiman’s Industrial Projects Office
“Our plans to decarbonise include adopting reduced carbon iron and steelmaking technologies, such as direct reduction furnaces and hybrid Electric Arc Furnaces, and using renewable energy and hydrogen when this is possible, to produce low carbon emission steel.”
Denise Timns - Chief Human Resources Officer
“We must attract a new generation excited by green industrial jobs and we have expanded our offering of graduate programmes and apprenticeships. Equally vital is upskilling our existing colleagues to ensure they contribute as significantly to our future as they have in the past.”
Arnaud de Weert - Chief Operating Officer
“Employee safety remains our top priority every day. Over the past year we have established consistent systems and processes, and shared best practices across the Group. This has enabled strong safety records across most plants, with others making significant improvements.”
Historically, hematite was the preferred iron ore due to its direct usability in blast furnaces (BF) for steel production, without beneficiation (value improvement) costs. But with declining hematite ore quality and a shift towards low-carbon technologies such as DRI, the demand for high-quality magnetite ore is at historically high levels.
We are committed to maintaining the highest safety standards and building a working environment in which everyone thrives. We have captured some of the highlights of the past year. View our case studies here.
