International audit firm Deloitte has verified NLMK Lipetsk’s 2020 greenhouse gas emissions data in line with the methodology used in the EU.
NLMK’s CO2 emissions per tonne of pig iron totaled 1.39 t of CO2/t. By way of comparison, 10% of steelmaking companies with the lowest emissions in the EU emit 1.36 t of CO2/t. NLMK’s performance is significantly better than the European steelmakers’ average emissions of 1.50 t of ÑÎ2/t.
This was the first time that NLMK’s greenhouse gas emission volume was verified in line with the EU ETS methodology. In future, NLMK plans to confirm the data annually.
In 2016–2020, NLMK’s programme aimed at reducing greenhouse gas emissions enabled a 4% decrease in CO2 emissions per tonne of steel. By 2023, the Company plans to reduce its emissions by an additional 3%.
