Goal 13: Climate action

Goal 13: Take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts

Climate change is affecting every country on every continent. It is disrupting national economies and affecting lives. Weather patterns are changing, sea levels are rising, and weather events are becoming more extreme.

Saving lives and livelihoods requires urgent action to address the climate emergency.

Stainless steel’s contribution

Tackling climate change is a global issue, requiring a shift in economies towards carbon neutrality. Stainless steel in varying grades plays an essential role in the decarbonisation of society. It’s an essential material used to produce low carbon energy from wind turbines, solar panels, solar water heaters, concentrating solar power plants, geothermal applications, hydro power plants, biodigesters, tidal generators and nuclear reactors. With superior corrosion resistance, strength, low maintenance and long service life, stainless steel plays a vital role in infrastructure that will support the development of the hydrogen economy over the coming decades.
