Environmental Management Systems

voestalpine’s internal environmental data management system comprises some 130 production companies and facilities worldwide—including all steel-producing and processing entities—that have a major impact on the Group’s ecological footprint. This covers about 150 key figures regarding, for example, energy and materials efficiency, emissions, water, waste, and recycling management as well as environmental investments. These data serve not only to prepare external reports and fulfill reporting obligations, but also to facilitate ecological assessments of processes, products, and materials. They also provide the basis for the Group’s environmental activities at the operating and strategic level as well as the continual monitoring thereof.

Broad-based management systems are particularly important in this respect. Two-thirds of the facilities covered by environmental data management possess an environmental management system pursuant to ISO 14001 or the EU’s Eco-Management and Audit Scheme (EMAS), and another 8% utilize a certified energy management system (EnMS) pursuant to ISO 50001.
