Sustainable Development

As a member of the ERAMET group, Erasteel strongly values environmental, societal and economical matters.
Founded in 1999, ERAMET set up as early as 2002 an Environmental Chart as part as a global reflexion on Sustainable Development, enabling the Group to build successful relationships with its investors, employees and clients, preserve the environment and encourage safety as well as innovation.

Sustainable development in action at Erasteel

  • The ongoing ISO 14 001 certification for our industrial sites is progressing quickly. Right now, two sites have been granted this certification, Commentry and Tianjin. We are very proud to say that Tianjin is the first Chinese site within the ERAMET Group to get this certification.
  • Recycling is clearly favoured among the Alloy branch of the Eramet group, to which Erasteel belongs. Indeed, our steel plant in Commentry uses many recycled raw materials.
  • Erasteel encourages synergies between Kloster in Sweden, Boonton in the US and Commentry and Champagnole in France aiming at improving recycling.
