Global steel manufacturer, SSAB, is one of the main participants in a new Swedish corporate initiative regarding circular material flows.
The initiative, Circular Sweden, is a forum comprising Swedish companies such as Ikea, and aims to collectively and actively contribute to a more sustainable society, in Sweden and internationally, by increasing the circulation share of materials and products.
“Steel is the world's most circulated material, with a very high recycling rate, and it is important for us to contribute to a more resource efficient and sustainable future,” said SSAB VP Sustainability and Public Affairs, Thomas Hörnfeldt.
The target for Circular Sweden is to make Sweden the leading country regarding material flows by 2030. The forum will reportedly work on various levels in close dialogue with stakeholders within politics, science and business.
