ArcelorMittal Canada releases its 2014 Sustainability and Corporate Responsibility Report and introduces its 10 sustainable development outcomes

Banner for blogTogether with our colleagues from mining, tubular and long products, we are pleased to publish our 2014 ArcelorMittal Canada Sustainability and Corporate Responsibility Report.

This report is a key part of our commitment to transparency and open dialogue with our stakeholders. The report introduces the following 10 sustainable development outcomes that will help the company achieve sustainability leadership:

  1. Safe, healthy, quality working lives for our people.
  2. Products that accelerate more sustainable lifestyles.
  3. Products that create sustainable infrastructure.
  4. Efficient use of resources and high recycling rates.
  5. Trusted user of air, land and water.
  6. Responsible energy user that helps create a lower carbon future.
  7. Supply chains that our customers trust.
  8. Active and welcomed member of the community.
  9. Pipeline of talented scientists and engineers for tomorrow.
  10. Our contribution to society measured, shared and valued.


This year, as these new outcomes are launched, we still report against the performance indicators used in previous years. As the report sets out, 2014 brought several notable accomplishments for ArcelorMittal’s Canadian units. It marked a record in overall steel production for the company, which at the same time continued to reduce its Lost-time Injury Frequency Rate by 16.7 per cent. In 2014, the company’s Canadian operations lowered its total CO2 emissions, spent a total of $300 million in R&D, and contributed more than $2.9 million in the form of corporate philanthropic gifts, corporate grants, sponsorships and employee giving in its host communities.

While the report underscores areas of progress, it also recognizes that there still remains room for improvement, such as: meeting the goal of zero lost-time injuries, sharing best practices across business units to improve environmental performance, and formalizing the grievance mechanisms and stakeholder engagement plans more consistently across all business units of the organization.

The report presents many case studies and examples highlighting key initiatives by individual plants and business units amongst the company’s Canadian locations, aligned with the organization’s global sustainability and corporate responsibility strategy.
