ArcelorMittal and Polmotors team up to reduce automotive supply chain emissions

ArcelorMittal Europe – Flat Products and Polmotors, one of the leading international players in the global market of metal forming and automotive components assembly, have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) that is focussed on reducing CO2 emissions in the supply chain as well as using XCarb® solutions.

3 April 2024

The MoU between ArcelorMittal Europe – Flat Products and Polmotors strengthens the longstanding partnership between the two companies, as well as broadening the scope of the partnership by creating a long-term supply relationship. With this commitment to broadening the use of XCarb® solutions, ArcelorMittal’s low carbon-emissions steel, ArcelorMittal and Polmotors are working on a common goal: to reduce the environmental impact of steel used in the automotive supply chain.

Specifically, the MoU focusses on the two companies exploring ways of reducing scope 3 emissions – emissions attributed to purchased steel – as well as increasing and testing the use of recycled steel in low-carbon emissions products. It also commits both companies to increasing the proportion of XCarb® products used in the supply chain.

This collaboration further reinforces our common approach to sustainability projects. It is thanks to the collaboration with our customers that we will achieve our goal of reducing CO2 emissions within Europe by 35% by 2030, and reaching net-zero by 2050. ArcelorMittal Europe – Flat Products will support Polmotors to be a decarbonisation leader in the automotive industry.”
