Green And Low Carbon
Shougang Group conscientiously implements President Xi Jinping’s thought of ecological civilization, giving high priority to energy conservation and emission reduction in corporate strategy, integrating into all aspects of the whole process of corporate development, and continuously promoting green development, circular development, and low-carbon development, striving to build a resource-saving and environment-friendly enterprise.
The Group enforces the “Green Action Plan of Shougang” in a rolling way and continuously improves the level of clean production. In 2017 and 2018, it completed 42 and 107 environmental protection projects respectively. Shougang Qian’an Iron & Steel Co., Ltd. took the lead in achieving ultra-low emissions, and it was appraised as the only Class A iron and steel enterprise in the performance evaluation of differentiated off-peak production pollution emissions in autumn and winter in Tangshan City from 2018 to 2019.
The Group steadily promotes the remediation of contaminated soil in Shougang Beijing Park. It has implemented the first large-scale remediation project in contaminated sites in the iron and steel metallurgy industry in China, and has invested and completed the negative pressure film greenhouse and the thermal desorption contaminated soil treatment production line with disposal capacity of 180,000 tons/year. By the end of 2018, 152,000 tons of contaminated soil had been remedied ectopic. In the original coking plant recovery workshop site, in situ gas thermal desorption technology was used to remedy 12,800 square meters of contaminated soil. All these have laid a solid foundation for the development and construction of the park and the development of environmental industry.
The Group continues to promote the construction of environmental responsibility reporting system. Joint-stock companies (including Jingtang and Cold Rolling), Tonggang, Changgang, Shuigang, Guigang and Shougang Environment issued the 2017 environmental responsibility report. In 2018, Shougang Qian’an Iron & Steel Co., Ltd. was awarded as an Excellent Enterprise for Environmental Protection in China by the All-China Environment Federation.

BWI was appraised as the Advanced Collective of Environmental Protection in the Capital.
The Group actively practices the concept of low carbon and implements corporate carbon reduction responsibility. Since the launch of carbon emissions trading in Beijing in 2013, carbon-related units in the Group have completed the submission and implementation of carbon emission reports in an all-round way. It won the title of Excellent Carbon Asset Management Unit of Beijing Environment Exchange in 2015 and 2016. At the same time, the Group actively studies market-based voluntary emission reduction mechanism, and has successfully developed the first CCER project in the iron and steel industry, namely 150MW CCPP power generation project of carbon emission reduction of Shougang Qian’an Iron & Steel Co., Ltd., and a waste resource power generation project, namely Shougang biomass energy power generation project of carbon emission reduction, which achieved both social and economic benefits. It actively promotes the green and low-carbon transformation development of Shougang Beijing Park. The Park’s positive climate development project has been included in the international C40 positive climate project development plan, becoming the first project in China and the 19th project in the world. After the completion of the project, the goal of “zero carbon, zero waste” will be achieved, which will help build Beijing into an international first-class harmonious and livable capital.
