The steel industry contributes 7% of the world’s CO2 emissions, 14.2% of UK greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from manufacturing and 2.4% of total UK greenhouse gas emissions. GHG emissions need to be significantly reduced to meet the UK’s net-zero targets by 2050.


  • The challenges and advancements in producing green steel at scale such as high technology investment costs, increased electricity prices, and the sourcing of hydrogen
  • Next steps in the large scale transition from coal to hydrogen
  • Is there a need for clearer policy frameworks?
