The domestic iron and steel industry continues to lead the world in environmental performance, making the United States a global model for the clean production of steel. The American steel industry has long identified environmental stewardship and commitment to sustainability as part of our strategic plan and vision for the future. The industry continues to aggressively seek new ways to reduce our environmental footprint. To build upon that progress, AISI urges the President and the Congress to take the following policy actions:

  • Ensure that regulatory decision-making by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is based on sound science and technological feasibility, as well as robust public participation and transparency.
  • Ensure that EPA’s regulations are developed to provide substantial quantifiable human health and environmental benefits and take into account appropriate consideration of costs.
  • Ensure that environmental regulations do not harm the U.S. steel industry’s international competitiveness.
