Guideline for the transformation:

Dillinger and Saarstahl welcome new LESS labeling standard for low-carbon steel

Dillinger and Saarstahl, subsidiaries of SHS – Stahl-Holding-Saar, welcome the introduction of the Low Emission Steel Standard (LESS). The labeling system for low-carbon steel initiated by the Wirtschaftsvereinigung Stahl (German Steel Federation) and its member companies is based on results from a stakeholder process organized by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Protection. The aim of LESS is to accelerate the transformation to climate neutrality by making visible both the current status of the transformation and the efforts made on the way to producing climate-friendly steel, and thereby to also make these aspects marketable.
