Stainless steel manufacturer Alleima has initiated the analysis of its products’ carbon footprint, from raw material to released product.
The company will initially release Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) data for its rock drill steel products, with an aim to support a sustainable shift in the mining industry.
According to Alleima, LCA data will measure and calculate the carbon footprint of both materials and products. The company claims that by providing the data, it will support its customers in reducing their own environmental footprint.
''The collaboration with customers and implementation of sustainable solutions will contribute to make greener choices for the industry.''Nicole Holmgren, LCA specialist at Alleima
“Alleima strives to be transparent and report [its] LCA results and sustainability efforts to strengthen trust among customers and stakeholders. The collaboration with customers and implementation of sustainable solutions will contribute to make greener choices for the industry. It will also ensure that the company can remain competitive and meet customer demands. Sustainability is of crucial importance for the society around us as well as for our customers and LCA will be important for businesses in the future”, said Nicole Holmgren, LCA specialist at Alleima.
To start with, Alleima will release LCA data for its rock drill steel products, followed by expanding the approach across the entire production chain, verifying downstream products in the production flow. Each product will have a third-party verified carbon footprint added to the material certificate – like the information currently provided on recycled materials.
