“We cherish our children, so we cherish our environment. We are committed to being cultural and environmental stewards in the communities in which we live and work.”

Leading the way to sustainability

Nucor has raised the bar for steel mills and other recyclers. Our company is built on the sustainable model of recycling steel in massive volumes, and we continue to push recycled content into steel products where it was never considered viable.

We’re also committed to perfecting new technologies that reduce emissions and increase energy efficiency. We’ve found ways to recycle water more efficiently, detect radiation in scrap, and get more value from everything we do. In 2013, approximately $65 million was approved for capital expenditures associated with environmental regulation compliance at our facilities.
