Sustainability-Environmental-Environmental Stewardship - www.ussteel.com
Environmental stewardship is a core value at U. S. Steel, stemming from the Gary Principles created in the early 1900s and continuing today in our S.T.E.E.L. Principles.
We know we must operate our facilities in an environmentally responsible manner and take steps to protect and preserve our shared natural resources. As a company, U. S. Steel articulates our core value of environmental stewardship through three basic principles that are the responsibility of all our employees and our operations.
Those principles are:
- Compliance with environmental laws and regulations;
- Continuous improvement in environmental and resource management; and
- Continued reduction of emissions through innovation.
- Many of our major production facilities, including Gary Works, Mon Valley Works, Great Lakes Works, Granite City Works, USSK and Big River Steel have Environmental Management Systems that are certified to ISO 14001 — the framework for the measurement and improvement of environmental impacts.
- We have a comprehensive Environmental Management Policy covering all material aspects of our approach to environmental topics.
