The green steel offering from Tata Steel Nederland

What exactly is the green steel offering from Tata Steel Nederland?
Our Carbon Lite solution is a declaration-based low carbon steel that offers a flexible reduction in CO2e intensity. Available immediately, it means we can accelerate CO2e reduction throughout the steel-based value chain. Our standard Carbon Lite solution offers a 30% reduction in CO2e intensity compared to the Tata Steel Nederland baseline Jan 2018. This is in line with scope 3 reduction targets set by many steel users by 2030.
