Sustainability in Dutch tender: MKI for rails

ArcelorMittal is the world's leading steel and mining company, with a presence in 60 countries and primary steelmaking facilities in 16 countries, including an integrated steelmaking site and rail mill in Dąbrowa Górnicza, Poland. In 2022, ArcelorMittal had revenues of $79.8 billion and crude steel production of 59.0 million metric tonnes, while iron ore production reached 45.3 million metric tonnes.

Hedgehog Company has performed a life cycle assessment (LCA) which will be used for business-to-business communication. The target group of this study are governments and businesses related to public procurement in the Dutch construction sector, as well as customers with whom ArcelorMittal wishes to share the environmental data.

Sustainability in tenders

This LCA study aims to generate reliable and accurate quantitative environmental data. With the LCA, the Environmental Cost Indicator (in Dutch MKI) was calculated. The MKI is a single score indicator representing the shadow price of a product expressed in euro. This is primarily used in tender within the Dutch construction sector. With an MKI score of their rails, ArcelorMittal gets an understanding of the environmental impact of their product.
