The worldsteel association has recognized Tenaris as a 2018 Steel Sustainability Champion for a second consecutive year. Tenaris was among six companies chosen for the distinction for demonstrating its commitment to sustainable development.
Winners were announced during worldsteel’s board meeting in Madrid, Spain, on April 16, 2019. According to worldsteel, the recognition program, now in its second year, encourages companies to increase their sustainable efforts, set higher standards and make further progress across their businesses.
The recognition is built around member commitment, set of measurable requirements and actions, as well as the publishing of a sustainability-related report.
In Tenaris’s newly published 2018 Sustainability Report, Chairman & CEO Paolo Rocca affirms the company’s focus. “Sustainability principles are deeply embedded in our values and management processes, as we position Tenaris to grow and prosper over the long-term,” he said in the report’s opening letter. The report details Tenaris’s integrated efforts to operate sustainably guided by its core values of safety, health, environment, quality and transparency.
