Outokumpu is accelerating the green transition in the steel industry with its actions. As part of Outokumpu’s emission reduction targets, the company’s Kemi mine will become carbon neutral by 2025. Outokumpu will take a significant step forward in reaching the target by replacing fossil fuels with renewable solutions provided by Neste. With renewable fuels, the annual greenhouse gas emissions of the Kemi mine will be cut by almost 11.3 million kilos.
The Kemi mine is the only chrome mine in the European Union and part of the sustainable supply chain of Outokumpu’s stainless steel mill in Tornio. Outokumpu’s operations in Kemi and Tornio also provide a great number of jobs in Finland.
