About the summit

The theme of All India Sponge Iron Manufacturers Association's Summit is Multi Pathways for Mitigation of Carbon Footprints. India is emitting about 2.9 GT CO2 emissions with 1.8 tonnes CO2 per capita emissions and is the third largest polluter (about 4.9% of the total global emissions).

National Steel Policy 2017 envisages steel production of 255 million tonnes by 2030-31 against the current production of 127 Million Tonnes (an increase of 128 Million Tonnes). This calls for immediate actions to reduce our CO2 emissions from the current level of 2.5 tonnes CO2/tonne of steel to the global average of 1.7 tonnes CO2/tonne of steel.

Indian steel industry and economy are growing very fast. This calls careful planning and

executing its emissions goals. This Summit will focus on the various Pathways not only to achieve of our targeted emissions goals but also to follow the emerging trends of the global steel industry.
