AISI has long identified environmental stewardship as part of our industry’s strategic plan and our vision for the future. We have carefully sought to reduce our environmental footprint even while producing the advanced and highly recyclable steel that our economy needs. In past years, the aggressive environmental regulatory programs at the federal and state levels created a competitive disadvantage for manufacturers, endangering jobs and adding significant costs and uncertainty to basic operations while providing only marginal environmental benefits in exchange. We have been encouraged by the current Administration’s recognition of the need for a partnership with industry to preserve and protect our shared environment while promoting economic growth.

Industry Position

American steel producers have carefully sought to reduce our environmental footprint even while producing the advanced and highly recyclable steel that our economy needs. We have been encouraged by the current Administration’s recognition of the need for a partnership with industry to preserve and protect our shared environment while promoting economic growth. AISI urges the Administration and Congress to continue to reconsider EPA regulatory actions in order to address the impact of these regulations on industrial competitiveness and to ensure adequate cost/benefit analysis.
