Over the last few decades, carbon dioxide emissions have been recognized as a major concern in the society. As a direct consequence, new environmental policies have been established to control and measure CO2 emissions. The stainless steel industry, just like any other industry, quantifies and communicates its CO2 emissions performance.
The International Stainless Steel Forum has issued a report to clarify what emissions exist and where they originate from. For more information please see https://www.worldstainless.org/files/issf/non-image-files/PDF/ISSF_Stainless_Steel_and_CO2.pdf
