ArcelorMittal intends to make its products and processes part of a circular economy. To do so, we carried out life cycle analysis of our products in development. An Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) is a document providing information on the environmental impact of each stage of a product’s lifecycle – production, transport, use and recovery.
Based on a Life Cycle Assessment (LCA), it is certified by an independent body. ArcelorMittal became a member of the German-based Institute of Construction and Environment (IBU) in 2016. The IBU’s EPD programme is one of the best-known worldwide for the expertise of its verifiers, guaranteeing that the data provided comply with European standard EN 15804. The Belval and Differdange sites, as well as the R&D centre at Esch-sur-Alzette, took part in drawing up two EPDs:
- one for sheet piles published at the end of 2016
- one for the HISTAR® beam published at the beginning of 2017
