Yesterday, SSAB participated in a high-level panel discussion held in connection with the European Commission and Swedish government’s visit to Kiruna, Sweden. In his message, SSAB‘s CEO Martin Lindqvist highlighted that the green transition is not a burden, but a business opportunity. SSAB already sees a market demand for fossil-free steel, and the aim is to start deliveries in 2026 and speed up SSAB‘s own green transition by 15 years. However, to succeed, SSAB will need access to fossil-free electricity and an enabling regulatory framework that secures that the EU remains competitive and delivers on the climate goals, he emphasized.
