Every year Tata Steel’s two steelmaking sites in IJmuiden, Netherlands, and Port Talbot, UK receive more than 20 million tonnes of raw materials from around the globe on around 300 giant ocean-going ships.
The company has already stated its ambition in IJmuiden to reduce CO2 emissions by five million tonnes a year by 2030 and has been exploring various technological options to achieve this, including the capture and storage of CO2 or a hydrogen route. External experts assessed that both options are technically feasible according to a joint study by Tata Steel and FNV, the Dutch trade union.
These were the stark words of Ursula von der Leyen President of the European Commission in March 2021, which were set out during our most recent online event in our Let's talk about the future series.
