SteelZero Summit- morning session

Jun 8 2023, 09:00 UTC - Jun 8 2023, 10:55 UTC

The SteelZero Summit brought together steel consuming businesses, policymakers, steel producers and government officials in Singapore for this year’s SteelZero Summit. Together they identified the possible solutions to the most pressing challenges that countries across Asia face in decarbonising steel. Through keynote speeches, panel discussions, Q&As, expert analysis and closed-door roundtables we examined where rapid progress can be made to get steel to net zero by 2050 at the very latest.

With the world’s major economies located in Asia now is the time for the region to find the progressive policies and innovative technologies that will support the steel decarbonisation.
