Green steel spotlight

Follow the low carbon steel discussion and keep up to date with the developments influencing the decarbonization of the steel industry

Global metals markets are evolving to become greener. Steelmakers worldwide are in a race to meet decarbonization goals under the growing scrutiny of the global leaders and consumers of steel products, who all have commitments to the energy transition.

In 2022, the World Economic Forum, which consists of more than 50 corporations, pledged to purchase “green” steel and lower carbon steel products, including other low carbon emitting commodities, by 2030.

As the momentum increases to decarbonize the metals industry, Fastmarkets continues to lead the way by launching our first suite of green steel prices into the European market. Our new green steel benchmarks include a green steel base price and domestic price, which were launched to help to define, measure and communicate green standards to support your decarbonization journey.

Our team of senior analysts and price reporters break down the big stories and analyze the key developments happening across green steel, global scrap and low carbon raw materials markets.

Stay connected to the latest price developments, shifting ‘green’ raw material strategies, technological advancements and market forecasts vital for decarbonizing the metals markets.
