New guidance for the steel sector

News Detail


Science Based Targets

The Steel Science-Based Target-Setting Guidance is the world’s first framework for companies in the steel sector, and potential users of steel such as the automotive industry, to set 1.5°C-aligned near- and long-term climate targets at a corporate level.

This guidance offers a granular methodology that includes an iron & steel core boundary aligned with the sector’s carbon budget, differentiated pathways based on scrap input, and a mandatory scope 3 target covering upstream emissions from fuels. It provides a stepwise approach on the target-setting process, and indicates how much and how quickly a company needs to reduce its emissions in line with the Paris Agreement.
