Nucor already has a carbon intensity less than one-third of today’s world average. Which puts Nucor 18 years ahead of the below 2-degrees target.
But we know that is not enough, and we are committed to going further.
Nucor is committing to a 35% combined reduction in steel mill scope 1 and scope 2 GHG intensity by 2030, using 2015 baseline goals. This goal will take Nucor’s steel mill CO2 emissions down to 77% less than 2020’s global steelmaking average.
- In addition to scope 1 and 2, Nucor will continue to reduce and disclose most of its scope 3 emissions.
- Nucor has already achieved and will continue to meet the Paris Agreement and below Two Degree Scenario based on the GHG sector-based benchmarks established in 2021 by the Transition Pathways Initiative (TPI).
- Beyond 2030, we are committed to continuing reductions in steel mill carbon intensity towards net zero-emission steel at scale.
