February 2, 2023 (press release) –

The Greif team was excited to tour the Tata Steel plant (6 miles in length by 3 miles wide), which began with observing raw materials, viewing every manufacturing stage, and then witnessing the results of finished products. The visit was educational in demonstrating all production phases of steelmaking. It provided valuable insight for our colleagues on how Greif can achieve our Protecting Our Future mission and reduce the carbon footprint of our value chain.

Tata Steel discussed its sustainability goals with our Greif team, including the aim to reduce its CO2 output by 30% by 2030 and become a carbon-neutral steelmaker by 2045. Tata Steel’s Research & Development department is working alongside Swansea University in Wales, UK, and the University of Warwick in Coventry, England, to continuously improve their sustainability innovations.

Adam Hamad, Greif Customer Service Representative, expressed his reaction following the tour. “The visit provided an enlightening insight into the steelmaking industry and how our supplier’s sustainability goals correspond with Greif’s. Many of our customers will be pleased to learn about the ongoing reduction of our carbon footprint before the manufacturing process has even begun.”
