Tata Steel has been recognised by the global steel body - World Steel Association for the company’s participation in the worldsteel CO2 data collection programme 2017-18. Tata Steel has been contributing to the CO2 data collection programme for the last ten consecutive years. The worldsteel Climate Action Recognition Programme recognises steel producers that have fulfilled their commitment to participate in the worldsteel CO2 emissions data collection programme. In 2008, Climate Action was launched, under which companies report data on-site or company-level CO2 emissions. A participating company or site receives a report showing the process route average emission data and range to which it can compare itself. The data collection programme is at the core of the steel industry's global steel sectoral approach to climate change. Based on a common methodology, definitions and agreed boundaries, the data collection programme enables individual steel plants to compare themselves against both average and best performance and identify its scope for improvement. The aim of the climate action project is to collect and report CO2 emissions data on a site-by-site basis to give overall emissions intensity for the production of steel at that site, irrespective of the final products that are being made. The recognition period is for two years (2017-2018), for the data collection period of 2016.
