The World Steel Association launched its Climate Action recognition program, which recognizes steel producers who have fulfilled their commitment to participate in the worldsteel CO2 emissions data collection program. Two-thirds of the worldsteel membership took part in the first round of data collection which ended earlier this year.

The CO2 emissions data collection program was launched in April 2008 and measures the current level of emissions from the production of steel worldwide. It will enable individual steel plants to position themselves against both average and best performance and to identify scope for improvement.

Climate Action is open to all steel producers, members, and non-members of worldsteel. Recognition can be obtained at a corporate level or at a site level as long as CO2 emissions data for more than 90% of the crude steel production of the company or the site is submitted. The recognition is valid for two years.
