American Iron & Steel Institute
The Steel Market Development Institute, a business unit of the American Iron and Steel Institute serves as the voice of the North American steel industry, and is committed to the principles of sustainability while supporting the development of innovative products that meet society's needs. Advances in steelmaking processes have allowed the industry to make significant reductions in energy use and CO2 emissions per ton of steel shipped since 1990. Steel continues to be the most recycled material in the world, and all steel products are fully recyclable at end of life, providing a valuable permanent resource for future generations. Additionally, our industry is committed to documenting the life cycle impact and sustainable advantages of steel so that material decision makers, policy leaders and ultimately consumers can make informed product decisions.
