Nippon Steel's Environmental Initiatives

Initiatives for priority areas

In order to achieve the SDGs, we identified three priority issues and two bases that help solve these issues based on the Basic Environmental Policy, implementing various initiatives defined as five priority areas.

Five priority areas for achieving the SDGs

Specific initiatives in five priority areas

Recognizing that efforts in the five priority areas are important for the realization of a sustainable society, we are steadily implementing measures in each of these areas.

In particular, since we announced the Carbon Neutral Vision 2025 in March 2021, we have been actively working on climate change measures as the most important management issue.

Three priority issues

 Climate Change Measures

  • Ensure progress toward the Carbon Neutral Vision 2050
  • Efforts for climate change measures in the resource recycling and biodiversity fields
  • Make efforts to adapt to climate change
  • Transfer and diffuse decarbonization technologies overseas
  • Disclose information according to recommendations of the TCFD
Hydrogen utilization in iron and steelmaking processes
NEDO “Hydrogen utilization in iron and steelmaking processes” project

 Creation of a Circular Economy

  • Expand efficient use of resources and energy
  • Promote internal zero emission
  • Accelerate recycling of waste generated in society
Construction using a soil modifier made from steelmaking slag
Waste plastic processing equipment

Conservation of Biodiversity and Nature Positive

  • Promotion of efforts to conservation of biodiversity and nature positive
  • Contribution to activities aimed at achieving the target of 30by30 alliance for biodiversity
Creation of Hometown Forests
(Reproducing “Chinju-no-Mori ” (sacred shrine forests) inside steelworks)
Creation of Sea Forests
(Improving environment of sea areas using slag products)

Two bases

 Environmental Risk Management

  • Conserve air environment
  • Conserve water environment
  • Respond to other environmental risks
    (soil, chemical substances and wastes)

 Environmental Management System

  • Establish an environmental management organization
  • Work at managing and improving the level of environmental management
  • Groupwide environmental management
