Protecting the Environment
“When we talk about steel, we must realize that steel is a fabric of life. Steel can be recycled endlessly without impacting the environment. We all acknowledge the importance of protecting the environment, not only because the development of the steel industry depends on the efficient management of resources, but also because protecting the environment is essential to our lives now and for our future generations.
Our team is heavily involved in continuously improving the environmental performance, carrying out various prevention activities: monitoring the quality of the environmental factors (air, water, soil), managing waste and hazardous substances, setting up trainings meant to raise awareness and to improve the environmental protection activity at each and every working place. Of great help is the implementation and continuous improvement of the environment management system, which adds value in line with our customers’ demand.
We maintain an open dialogue with our interested stakeholders, inviting them to periodical communication sessions. Protecting the environment is not an obligation, but a responsibility of each one of us, both at our working place and at home. We take this responsibility seriously, not only for ourselves and our industrial activity, but also for the people to live around us and for our future generations.”

Celebrating World Environment Day
Celebrating World Environment Day World Environment Day is celebrated annually on June 5th. This year’s theme of the World Environment Day is Biodiversity.
We are surrounded by biodiversity and we, as species, are an element of biodiversity, and through everything we do, we influence and modify this system. Being aware of the outcome of our own actions, we are expected to be more cautious about the exploitation of biological resources.
According to the latest research, one million plant and animal species are in danger of extinction. Each species plays an important role in maintaining a balanced and healthy ecosystem, and biodiversity and habitat losses can increase the spread of infectious diseases and viruses.
The crisis caused by the COVID-19 pandemic revealed the extent of our vulnerability as regards the biodiversity decline and the importance of the ecosystem for our society to function properly. Analysing and changing our
attitude towards what is surrounding us, we come to realize how much we rely on the delicate balance of nature.
It is time to act and improve our relationship with nature!
It is time to put the future at the heart of all our actions and decisions and live in harmony with nature!
