The management system is a set of procedures and practices used Ternium to continually improve its environmental performance.
Concepts of eco-efficiency are also applicable in the entire system, and seeks alignment with ISO 14001:2004
All Ternium Industrial Plants have specific procedures for the proper operation, maintenance and control facilities with potential impact on the environment.
Climate change & Ternium
To address the challenge of climate change Ternium complies to the "Sectoral Approach" proposed by Worldsteel, considering that only a global effort can provide an effective solution. The Worldsteel Association (WSA) is the leading industry association whose members produce steel for about 85% of world steel output.
Ternium and other steel companies that comply with the program, work in four dimensions: monitoring CO2 emissions & reductions, working with clients to achieve more efficient applications in terms of CO2 & recycling, promoting industry best practices around the world, and investing in research & technology development.
Companies such as Ternium participating in this program are committed to measure CO2 emissions from its production plants following a common methodology. Ternium has reported its emissions to the WSA data collection team, thus allowing a benchmark of the sector in both routes of steel production (electric arc and blast furnace) and likewise identifying possible improvements to reduce CO2 emissions.
For its work Ternium was recognized by Worldsteel as a member of Climate Action, an award granted to those companies that have fulfilled their commitment to provide information about CO2 emissions, based on a common methodology designed specifically for this program.
