Since 1994, ArcelorMittal Dofasco has been an active member of the Hamilton Industrial Environmental Association (HIEA), comprised of a number of local industrial neighbours whose mandate is:
"To improve the local environment – air, land and water – through joint and individual activities and by partnering with the community to enhance future understanding of environmental issues, and help establish priorities for action.”
A very important aspect of HIEA’s mandate is partnering with the community. HIEA’s Community Advisory Panel meets eight times a year providing citizens and representatives from local neighbourhood associations and community advocacy groups the opportunity to exchange information and discuss issues of concern to the community with HIEA member company representatives.
Through direct financial sponsorship and the volunteer efforts of its member companies, HIEA also provides sponsorship and support to environmental and education programs within the Hamilton community.
