CERTIFIED CARBON REDUCTION
Recent CO2 savings realised by Tata Steel Nederland are certified by an independent assurance expert and compiled in our central carbon bank. Carbon Lite draws in credits from this bank in the form of certificates, allowing you to meet your specific carbon reduction targets.
The purpose of Zeremis Carbon Lite is to accelerate CO2 emission saving projects even faster and we are looking at every possibility, for example the use of bio-coal, green HBI and hydrogen in our current assets. But we will also push the boundaries of scrap usage even further.
It’s our ambition to reduce CO2 emissions by 500 kilotonnes before Tata Steel Nederland commissions its first Direct Reduced Iron (DRI) installation. This will enable us to supply a minimum of 200 kilotonnes of CO2-neutral equivalent steel on an annual basis.
Carbon Lite is completely verified and certified by Det Norske Veritas (DNV) enabling you to start delivering on your scope 3 reduction targets now and win an advantage with a differentiating, sustainable product offering.
Whilst the baseline offer for Carbon Lite is a 30% reduction in CO2 intensity against the European average, our flexible solution will enable you to determine your own carbon footprint which is needed to realise your specific emission reduction targets.
Below you can find the DNV Assurances Statement for the first CO2 saving projects. More CO2 saving project will follow as we work with our customers who want to take climate action now.
