Partnering With Our Communities
ArcelorMittal adheres to the principles of sustainability and cares about its impact on host communities. Whether by reducing the company’s environmental footprint with healthier practices and targeted investments, or actively partnering in various local causes through donations and sponsorships, we want to make our communities good places to live.
We support our employees’ personal volunteer efforts with company funding for the organizations where they give their time, according to the areas of interest specified in the company’s policy.
As Quebec’s biggest local recycler, nearly 100% of the materials that enter our scrap processing and recycling centres are recycled or recovered. We also play a major role in removing these materials from landfills, something our employees can be proud of. Our annual sustainability report describes the activities of all ArcelorMittal’s Canadian operations.
ArcelorMittal Long Products Canada facilities are certified under ISO 14001, a recognized environmental standard.
The Midrex process at the reduction plant, where we produce direct-reduced iron pellets, generates only half the greenhouse gas of the traditional blast-furnace steel manufacturing process.
Our electric arc furnaces run on clean, renewable energy from Quebec’s hydropower plants.
Steel is the world’s most recycled material: 80 million tonnes are recycled each year in North America alone. At Long Products Canada, we recycle up to 1 million tonnes per year.
