Sustainability is about much more than just the environment.

The stainless steel industry also aims to operate in an economically sustainable way that respects the well-being of its employees and the people and communities associated with its businesses.

The stainless industry is constantly looking for ways to improve its environmental performance.

More information about stainless steel and sustainability can be found on this website.

Desalination in stainless steel

Successful desalination requires a material that can resist the aggressive corrosion caused by seawater and brine. Utilising stainless steel to create fresh water further increases the sustainability profile of the desalination industry. The durability and minimal maintenance requirements of stainless make it a good choice economically. The high-level of recycled content and 100% recyclability at the end of its life are the cornerstones of stainless steel’s environmental profile. High performance stainless steels, including duplex grades, are the perfect choice for desalination.

Stainless Steel in Tunnels

Stainless steel is finding increasing use in tunnels for its fire and corrosion resistance properties and long maintenance-free life. This new brochure in the Sustainable Stainless series provides detailed case studies which demonstrate why stainless steel is becoming the material of choice in road, rail, metro and long sub-sea tunnels.

Durable, Hygienic and Recyclable for a Sustainable Future

As Sustainability is about much more than just the environment, the new animation and brochure show how Stainless Steel contributes to a sustainable world in areas ranging from transport, healthcare, water provisions and food.
