  • Enabling sustainable construction

    The construction industry is the single largest user of resources, accounting for up to 90% of non-fuel mineral use. Meanwhile, the construction industry produces more than three times as much waste as domestic properties and the operation of buildings accounts for almost half of all energy use and carbon dioxide emissions. If the construction industry is to truly embrace sustainability it must be embedded through the whole life-cycle of the building.

    Steel buildings are inherently efficient in design, construction, use and even demolition. Steel buildings are flexible in use and highly adaptable. Steel structures are lightweight and thermally responsive and steel building systems help to minimise energy use in buildings. Meanwhile, using steel in construction helps to save precious resources, since it is efficiently collected and truly recycled in demolition.

    Steel is used in many of the most sustainable buildings. Steel building systems are very well rated in schemes such as BREEAM and LEED and our products are frequently used in some of the highest-rated buildings.

    At Tata Steel, we produce a range of products to make buildings more efficient. Our wide range of structural products enables design efficiency, while our building envelope products are the most durable available. Our latest products are designed to harness energy, turning buildings into energy generators and bringing the goal of zero carbon building ever closer.
