2050 Carbon Neutrality

In December 2020, POSCO declared its commitment to become carbon neutral by 2050.
We are proactively responding to climate change.
Based on hydrogen reduction steelmaking technology,
POSCO’s carbon net-zero roadmap at operation sites aims to reduce emissions in phases:
10% by 2030, 50% by 2040, and net-zero by 2050.
In parallel with work site carbon abatement efforts, we have set a goal to achieve avoided emissions (10% by 2030) by introducing low-carbon alternatives and recycling manufacturing by-products.
