About our United States Integrated Report
In 2015, ArcelorMittal launched a new global narrative for corporate responsibility and sustainability that, for the first time, executes a strategy for the company far beyond traditional stakeholder engagement and community investment. Together with our colleagues around the world, leaders in the United States joined together around this narrative to begin to develop key performance indicators (KPIs) that will, over time, showcase our performance against our 10 sustainable development (SD) outcomes. As we continue to grow in the narrative of the 10 SD outcomes, we work to drive performance that goes beyond financial data to include the long-term value that can be driven by economic, governance, social and environmental performance as well.
In the United States, ArcelorMittal is reporting on our corporate responsibility and sustainability outcomes for the eighth time. In 2016, we took our first major step toward integrated reporting in the United States. Our first annual integrated report, published in May 2016 brought together our sustainability results with the strategy of our United States business. This methodology brings us closer to sustainability – both in the traditional and financial sense and by integrating sustainability in our annual strategic planning processes and discussions. This integrated approach ensures ArcelorMittal does what is right - for our business, our people and our planet.
It is important to us that our integrated report is accessible to all stakeholders. We also place great value on ensuring this report is environmentally friendly. Thus, we have chosen to publish our report online. Our integrated report can be found on the sustainability section of our U.S. website. The information presented here represents our 2016 calendar year results. The ease of a web portal allows us to update data and information throughout the year. Also on this website are many of the goals and metrics ArcelorMittal is working toward in 2017 in the United States.
This report aligns with the content elements suggested by the International Integrated Reporting Framework and the International Integrated Reporting Council (IIRC). The environmental and social data in the report is presented in accordance with the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) G4 core guidelines. This report and its indicators are also prepared in accordance with the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB) for the Metals and Mining sector. More information about ArcelorMittal’s operations in the United States and the details of those facilities covered in this report can be found in the organizational overview section of this report.
This second annual integrated report continues our focus on driving future value creation. Within this report, we outline goals for our work in sustainability. For this reason, the data and commentary throughout this report are both a retrospective look at 2016 results and a forward-thinking approach to our performance. Data within this report is subject to change at any time. No stakeholder should view this report as financial forecast or guidance.
