ArcelorMittal is proud to announce the publication of its first annual 2015 United States Integrated Report. Since 2009, ArcelorMittal has reported its corporate responsibility (CR) and sustainability outcomes in the United States in an annual CR report. In 2012, ArcelorMittal began producing a separate fact book to review opportunities and challenges facing the USA business and steel industry.
ArcelorMittal’s Integrated Report combines these two documents and takes a major step forward in stakeholder transparency. This means all levels of the ArcelorMittal business are working to incorporate sustainability – both in the traditional and financial sense and into annual strategic planning processes and discussions. This integrated approach ensures ArcelorMittal does what is right - for the steel industry, people across the globe and our planet.
The report is published in a convenient online format on ArcelorMittal’s USA website under the sustainability section. In this section of the website, the report can be viewed online, downloaded in full in PDF form, or added by individual pages to a customizable PDF.
Highlights of the 2015 United States Integrated Report include:
- Achieved a 1.33 lost time injury (LTI) frequency rate, which includes full-time employees and contractors of all flat and long carbon facilities in the U.S. While this is an improvement over 2014, ArcelorMittal believes they can and must do better.
- Produced nearly 15 million tons of raw steel and invested more than $218 million into U.S. operations to enhance production capabilities and improve efficiency
- Contributed $8.9 billion in total economic impact including more than $2.3 billion in employee wages and benefits alone
- Supported global goal of reducing CO2 emissions by 8 percent per ton of steel produced by 2020 over a 2007 baseline. In the United States, CO2 emissions decreased more than six percent since 2014.
- Implemented energy projects that resulted in an energy savings of more than $39 million, the equivalent of powering 28,500 homes for a year
- Supported more than 100 volunteer projects through 4,237 volunteer hours donated by employees to local nonprofit partners
- Contributed $8.3 million in total community investment, including cash grants, employee donations and company matching gifts. Approximately half was in support of education, particularly science, technology, engineering and math (STEM).
