Luxembourg, 27 June 2018 - The Sustainable development report 2017 – ArcelorMittal in Luxembourg is now available. It covers the actions carried out in the country by our company during the year 2017, reflecting its commitment as a social and responsible company.
Structured around the ten sustainable development outcomes defined by the Group worldwide, ArcelorMittal in Luxembourg measured its societal performance through key indicators disclosed in this 2017 report.
Last year was a milestone in the professionalisation of our CSR (Corporate social responsibility) policy, with the launch of a project led by the Sustainable Development Committee which gathers the CEOs of ArcelorMittal industrial sites in Luxembourg and various internal experts under the responsibility of Mr. Roland Bastian, Head of Country Luxembourg. This project led to the development of a materiality matrix defining more precisely the economic, social and environmental impacts of ArcelorMittal in Luxembourg and their influences on its stakeholders.
A series of interviews, targeting a representative sample of these stakeholders, highlighted the most "material" and relevant issues to be deepened in the coming years.
Have been identified as "material" topics:
• Operational performance,
• Environmental compliance,
• Emissions of greenhouse gases and other emissions from our industrial sites,
• The health and safety of our employees.
Beyond these six topics, three other themes emerged as priorities for ArcelorMittal and its stakeholders: the circular economy, the reconversion of industrial wastelands and the direct economic value created and distributed.
The materiality analysis carried out will help ArcelorMittal to conduct its CSR policy in Luxembourg in a refined way, and will naturally inspire the content of its CSR reporting.
Perfectly aligned with our ambition to produce a safe and sustainable steel, this approach confirms the commitment of our company to its stakeholders and demonstrates its involvement to continue its actions in favor of Sustainable Development.
