Sustainable development is a principle that aims to ensure that fundamental human rights and opportunities for human development are preserved, while also safeguarding the ability of natural systems to provide communities and people with natural resources and ecosystem services.
Steel is one of the most important and common construction materials in the world today. It is used everywhere and in virtually all branches of industry. Steel is either a part of the end product, or is used in the tools that make them. Quite simply, it’s hard to imagine a world without steel.
The endeavour to achieve a sustainable society is part of our business. We are convinced that new technical innovations will play a major role in many of the global environmental challenges that lie ahead. Our experience, know-how and values will be key in the continued development. The great challenge for Uddeholm is to make sure that the company’s profitability is the result of striking a long-term balance between social, environmental and financial interests.
We want to make a difference. Together, our network of experts around the world strive constantly to create solutions that are sustainable, safe and long-lasting – for ourselves and our customers. In other words, our customers get far more from us than just steel. They also get our promise to always produce a steel that is as environmentally friendly as possible. Achieving this is a constantly ongoing process, and a promise that must be made every day.
Sustainability has long been an important key factor for Uddeholm. We strive for a world leading production standard that allows us to thrive together with our customers, colleagues and the environment. In the middle of december 2021 we ran a week long trial of producing climate neutral tool steel at the Uddeholm Mill in Hagfors. Read more »
