Alan Knight, ArcelorMittal: Those doing it right can differentiate themselves
ArcelorMittal general manager for sustainable development and corporate responsibility Alan Knight told Mining Journal the pressure from its downstream customers steel customers prompted the company to launch ResponsibleSteel, an initiative requiring raw materials companies to certify their sites.
He said alongside the pressure was a concern that the standards being imposed on them by downstream customers and third parties actually "aren't very good" and so ArcelorMittal took it upon itself to deliver a more relevant and practical set of rules.
Mining Journal Stakeholder Engagement is a platform for conversation between the mining industry and key stakeholders. The programme is designed to help set a practical path to better engagement, reduced risk and better practices.
