Promotion of Countermeasures to Global Warming
NSSMC promotes energy conservation and CO2 emissions reduction throughout the entire supply chain: manufacturing, transportation, and final use of products. We also actively work on innovative technology development and transfer of established technology to our overseas operations, helping them to contribute to CO2 reduction over the medium- and long-term.
From the time of the first oil crisis until around 1990, Nippon Steel intensively promoted continuous processing, exhaust heat recovery, and other measures, that enabled significant energy conservation.
We have made joint efforts for logistics efficiency with the logistics companies within the NSSMC Group, such as the improvement of transportation efficiency and fuel economy.
NSSMC is taking on a challenge in the form of the “CO2 Ultimate Reduction in Steelmaking Process by Innovative Technology Project,” in addition to making efforts to reduce CO2 by conserving energy at steelworks.
NSSMC is participating in many energy-saving and environmental initiatives in Japan and overseas. For example, we work with the World Steel Association, the GSEP (Global Superior Energy Performance Partnership), or directly with countries such as China, South Korea, and India.
