JSW Steel USA to Digitally Publish Carbon Emissions Data on Products
In a statement, the company said it will the publish the declarations through program operator Smart EPD. An EPD is an internationally accepted, third-party verification statement that provides clear and transparent information about a product’s environmental impact across its value or supply chain.
“JSW Steel USA is aligned to the sustainability goals of our parent company JSW Steel. It has always been our endeavor to bring our steel operations in the United States of America in line with our position as a World Steel Association Sustainability Champion,” said JSW Steel USA director Parth Jindal.
“JSW Steel USA is well-positioned to support low-carbon steel demand and the renewable energy sectors within the United States with the greenest steel available in North America. The adoption of Smart EPD is the first step in our journey to provide a clear and strong framework in our journey towards the decarbonization of our business operations,” he added.
The company said state and federal “Buy Clean” policies are increasingly relying on EPDs to disclose the embodied carbon emissions of a given product.
“This effort will bolster JSW Steel USA’s competitive landscape, especially in markets that appeal to low-carbon steel procurement,” the company said.
