JSW Steel USA Adopts Environmental Product Declarations

JSW Steel USA said it is the first steel company in the US to adopt Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs).

JSW USAThe steelmaker said that with new technology, called “Smart EPD,” it can directly generate and publish verified digital EPDs on demand.

Developed by sustainability consultancy TrueNorth Collective, JSW USA said the Smart EPD platform is based on the steelmaker’s operations across its portfolio of slab, plate, hot-rolled coil, and pipe steel products.

The company, with mills in Mingo Junction, Ohio, and Baytown, Texas, noted that EPDs are internationally accepted, third-party verified documents that provide information about a product’s environmental impact across its supply chain.

“JSW USA is aligned to the sustainability goals of our parent company, (India’s) JSW Steel,” Parth Jindal, director of JSW USA, said in a statement.

He added that the company 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 “to provide a clear and strong framework in our journey towards the decarbonization of our business operations,” Jindal said.
