CSN conducts an annual greenhouse gas (GHG) inventory following Greenhouse Gas – GHG Protocol guidelines to support the development of a carbon management, risk mitigation and climate change adaptation strategy. The preparation of the GHG emissions inventory has as main objectives:
Data collection and individual analysis of each unit allows the definition of performance indicators, which are directly related to operating costs, since emissions are linked to production efficiency.
By acting in an integrated manner, CSN maintains significant productive efficiency gains that result in lower carbon emissions, including:
The Greenhouse Gas Inventory (GHG) inventory preparation process involves a multidisciplinary team and the participation of more than 80 people from the 15 units in which emissions are calculated.
The publication of the emissions inventory aims to demonstrate the Company’s transparency regarding the challenges that global climate change demands. For the fifth consecutive year, CSN has been awarded the GHG Protocol Gold seal for reporting emissions from all its units and these have been subject to external verification by third party bodies.
