Environment protection is the main priority for the Environment Protection Department employees as for the rest of the ArcelorMittal Galati unit.


World Environment Day, Celebrated by a Series of Activities  


“Connecting people to nature," the motto of the World Environment Day, celebrated this year again on June 5th, is an urge for us to go outdoors, to appreciate the beauty and importance of nature in our lives,  to be its messengers and protect it.

"We have chosen to celebrate nature by way of several actions, among which: raising awareness on the importance of environmental protection, greening and setting up waste collection points, but also by involving the next generation in recycling materials. The actions we are proposing will take place between May 26th and June 9th, "explained Mirela Dobrotă, the Head of the Environmental Protection Department

„Any activity has an impact on the environment, and the steel industry makes no exception. The greatest challenge of the century is being able to continue our activity without affecting the environment to the extent we have done so far. Many thanks to the volunteers for their efforts in supporting this action!, "said Ribo Bruno, the CEO of ArcelorMittal Galati. 



"Protecting the environment is not an obligation, but a responsibility of each and every one of us"


"When we talk about steel, we must realize that steel is a fabric of life. Steel can be recycled endlessly without impacting the environment. We all acknowledge the importance of protecting the environment, not only because the development of the steel industry depends on the efficient management of resources, but also because protecting the environment is essential to our lives now and for our future generations.


Our team is heavily involved in continuously improving the environmental performance, carrying out various prevention activities: monitoring the quality of the environmental factors ( air, water, soil), managing waste and hazardous substances, setting up trainings meant to raise awareness and to improve the environmental protection activity at each and every working place. Of great help is the implementation and continuous improvement of the environment management system, which adds value in line with our customers’ demand.


We maintain an open dialogue with our interested stakeholders, inviting them to periodical communication sessions. Protecting the environment is not an obligation, but a responsibility of each and every one of us, both at our working place and at home. We take this responsibility seriously, not only for ourselves and our industrial activity, but also for the people to live around us and for our future generations.”
