The Trusteel Group has been working to enhance the sustainability of its operations for many years, and the next step is an integrated approach in the chain. With this in mind, we recently signed the Steel Constructional Agreement, which aims to further improve the sustainable use of steel in Dutch construction and infrastructure by 2030.

Other signatories to the Agreement include Tata Steel, Heijmans and ArcelorMittal. Signing commits us to jointly focus on aspects such as reducing raw materials, emissions and waste from construction.

One of the stated ambitions of the Agreement is to reduce CO2 emissions by at least 60% by 2030 compared to 1990. There will also be a renewed drive to reuse more steel structures and profiles in subsequent construction projects, a principle that Kampstaal already follows with its car park structures.

Bob Soetekouw – General Director of the Trusteel Group ‘Some challenges are too great and too important to be tackled alone. I am delighted that we will be able to tackle sustainability together, within the chain.’
