Environment Council

The Environment Council’s area of responsibility covers process-related issues that relate to the external environment, e.g. discharges to air/water/land, waste and by-products as well as knowledge about chemical products.

The Council 

  • monitors developments in the environmental area at the national level, within the EU and also internationally.
  • works actively to ensure that the steel industry’s operating preconditions in the environmental area are based on factual information and are designed to be competition-neutral.
  • enables companies, through benchmarking, to present arguments in individual cases relating to permits.
  • acts to ensure that the industry is well informed about emission levels as well as waste and by-product volumes.
