Net zero steel panel event promo

Steel is the world’s most widely used material – from buildings to bridges, scissors to saucepans, cars to wind turbines, it’s found in almost every aspect of our lives. But unfortunately steelmaking is currently one of the biggest emitters of CO2 globally, despite the fact that technologies exist for its production to be decarbonised. 

We’ll hear from business leaders and experts in the field on the role that organisations can play in driving demand for responsible materials, and explore why decarbonising steelmaking is not only possible, but critical for getting the world on track to net zero.

  • Jakob Askou Bøss, Senior Vice President, Corporate Strategy & Stakeholder Relations, Ørsted
  • Jenny Chu, Head of Energy Productivity Initiatives
  • Cate Harris, Group Head of Sustainability & Lendlease Foundation, Lendlease
  • Peggy Hollinger, International Business Editor Financial Times
