A sustainable stainless steel industry is about all of us. Stainless steel adds value to our lives through the jobs it creates. Over US$9.5 billion is paid in wages each year to people who work directly or indirectly in the industry.

The safety of our staff and contractors is the key priority for the stainless steel industry. Today, the industry’s safety performance is at benchmark levels worldwide.

Stainless steel also improves our lives by making technical advances possible. Without stainless steel, the installations that provide us with clean drinking water, food and medication would not be nearly as hygienic and efficient as they are.
