ArcelorMittal USA receives third ENERGY STAR honor

On 1 March, ArcelorMittal USA was selected, for the third consecutive year, as a 2010 ENERGY STAR Sustained Excellence Award winner for Energy Management.
33-82-EnergyStarUsaFinal2.jpgEach year, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Energy honor organizations that have made outstanding contributions to protecting the environment through energy efficiency. In 2008, ArcelorMittal became the first steel company to achieve this respected distinction.

"Despite difficult operating conditions, our U.S. facilities remained diligently focused on improving energy management during 2009," said Mike Rippey, President and CEO, ArcelorMittal USA. "I commend our ArcelorMittal USA Energy Committee and employees for keeping energy a key focus area from the shop floor to the offices."

During 2009, ArcelorMittal's U.S. operations accomplished 18.75 million USD in ongoing energy savings through several non-capital projects. We also were recognized for the development of a formal, best practice procedure - "Energy Management at Reduced Production or Shutdown" - which was noted as a best practice and shared globally among ArcelorMittal plants. ArcelorMittal also worked hard to spread the word about energy conservation - and the ENERGY STAR program - to its employees, families, suppliers, customers and the general public.

"As an industry leader, we must remain focused on maintaining operational excellence while reducing energy intensity," said Larry Fabina, Energy Team Leader, ArcelorMittal USA. "Our focus on energy reduction is an ongoing process, demonstrating our commitment to sustainability."
