Sustainability

At Schnitzer, Sustainability is at the core of what we do. By recycling scrap metal, we are diverting and reusing millions of tons of materials each year that might otherwise be destined for landfills. The ferrous and non-ferrous scrap metal we process is utilized to manufacture new metal-based products, conserving natural resources and significantly reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

Sustainability is also at the core of how we operate. Almost 80% of our electricity consumption comes from renewable sources. As a result of our investment in a state-of-the-art water recycling system, we re-use 80% of the water at our steel manufacturing mill in Oregon. We are building on these foundations to do even more in these areas and others, including investing in environmental control and advanced processing technologies and reducing emissions from and increasing the fuel efficiency of our front-line equipment.

We have been creating value through recycling for over a century. On behalf of our Board of Directors and our over 3,500 employees, we invite you to learn more about Sustainability at Schnitzer.
