Special Address by Chief Guest
Shri Nagendra Nath Sinha

Secretary Ministry of Steel


Steel sector being one of the largest contributors - about 12% - of India's greenhouse gas emissions, decarbonisation strategies in Steel industry hold the key to India achieving its climate goals. With a significant capacity expansion envisaged in steel sector to 300 mtpa by 2030, it is an opportune moment to chart out a future course of action that balances the dual aspect of increased steel production and improving carbon footprint of the sector. Increasing the share of renewable energy and emphasis of public policy on increasing scrap availability are some of the crucial steps in the direction of shifting towards less carbon intensive production pathways. Ministry of Steel has set up 14 task forces on Green Steel to look into various dimensions, such as technology, demand, finance etc., of decarbonising steel sector.
