We’re Lowering Steel Emissions.

The GSCC® Steel Climate Standard pioneered the glidepath to achieve 2050 net zero goals. We call on steel manufacturers, suppliers and consumers across the steel value chain to join this ambitious movement toward a low carbon future.


The Global Steel Climate Council (GSCC®) is a non-profit association organized to advance climate strategy by establishing standards and advocating for carbon emissions reductions by members of the steel industry. The GSCC® includes more than 35 international producing members and supporters across the steel value chain, including steel producers, upstream material and services suppliers, downstream manufacturers and end-users, and trade associations.

Accelerate Progress to Reduce Emissions

Our mission. Lead the way toward a truly effective low-emission steel standard for all producers that accurately counts carbon emissions – regardless of the production methods. The GSCC® Steel Climate Standard is designed to incentivize true decarbonization of the steel sector and has three important objectives:

  1. Provide a single, technology neutral framework for steel product certification and company science-based emissions target-setting that applies to all steel producers equally on a global basis.
  2. Allow all steel customers to know the carbon emissions associated with the steel products they are purchasing.
  3. Create an industry standard for achieving the emissions reduction goals in the Paris Climate Agreement by 2050.

Why We're Here

Technologies already exist to cut global steelmaking emissions and new technologies are on the horizon.


All of our member companies at the GSCC® are committed to enhancing steel production with a safer, cleaner, emission-reducing process.
