ArcelorMittal is delighted to be recognised as a Steel Sustainability Champion for 2017 by the World Steel Association (worldsteel) at its board meeting held in Mumbai, India. 


The prestigious accolade is a result of ArcelorMittal’s dedication to worldsteel’s sustainable development charter, the Company’s regular and transparent reporting, contribution to safety improvement for steelworkers, and its success in the 2017 Steelie Awards, where it won the ‘Excellence in sustainability’ category. 


Brian Aranha, executive vice president, ArcelorMittal, said: “It is an honour to be in Mumbai and accept the award on behalf of ArcelorMittal. As the world’s leading steel company, we recognise the importance of sustainability for the business and the steel industry. This is a confirmation of our unparalleled track record on environmental and social performance, and our capability to introduce sustainable best practices from across the company to India as part of our bid for Essar Steel.“


Worldsteel's newly launched Steel Sustainability Champions programme recognises the steel companies who are leading the way in creating a truly sustainable steel industry.
