Environmental Consciousness

The no-waste process of Gulf Steel Coating Industries, and the fact that steel is 100% recyclable, makes it a sustainable building method that will make a positive impact on the future of our environment.

Gulf Steel industry has a long commitment to aggressively seeking ways to reduce our environmental footprint while producing the advanced and highly recyclable steel that our economy needs. In fact, the steel sector is recognized as having the steepest decline of total air emissions among nine manufacturing sectors studied in EPA's 2008 Sector Performance Report.

The industry's demonstrated leadership in meeting and exceeding environmental requirements has resulted in the lowest CO2 emissions per ton of steel production in the world. However, the simultaneous development of multiple new environmental regulatory proposals across several program areas at the federal and state levels will create severe competitive disadvantages for the industry and endanger manufacturing jobs.

Environmental Policy

Gulf Steel recognizes environmental protection as one of our key values and an important component of sound business performance. We are committed to protecting our natural resources and preventing pollution by establishing objectives that reduce our impact on the air, water, and land.

These values originate with the top management and are emphasized through all levels of responsibility within the organization. Gulf Steel will conduct its operations in a manner that is environmentally responsible and befitting a good corporate neighbor and citizen.
