Sustainability and carbon reduction in Türkiye's steel industry for the future

The 10th International Steel Industry and Production Technologies Conference, organized by IMC Organization, gathered leading industry representatives with the support of the Turkish Steel Exporters' Association. Borçelik Sales Director Ozan Faik Tumba, one of the leading figures of the conference, discussed important issues focusing on sustainability and carbon reduction in the steel industry.

Faik Tumba's presentation included critical topics such as transition to green energy, decarbonization in the steel industry, ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) strategies, CBAM and ETS, global trade issues, European steel market.

Particularly, Faik Tumba emphasized the responsibilities assumed by the steel industry and the measures to be taken in an environment of increasing concerns about global warming and climate change.

In the presentation, it was pointed out that Borçelik, in partnership with 50 percent Borusan and 50 percent Arcelormittal, produces in Gemlik and uses its own ports for imports and exports. Giving detailed information on the emission trading system and the Carbon Regulation Mechanism at the Border, Tumba warned that the increase in temperature worldwide could lead to serious consequences with climate change.

Tumba stated that following the regulations that started in 1990 with the Kyoto Protocol, Türkiye has committed to reduce its emission increase until 2038, while the European Union is moving forward with a 50 percent reduction target by 2030. Faik Tumba stated that carbon emission trading started in the European Union in 2005, while Türkiye does not yet have an ETS system, but the ministry is working on this issue.

Informing about the 2023 Carbon Adjustment Mechanism at the Border, Tumba explained that countries exporting to Europe will have to report their carbon emissions as of 2023. He also emphasized that this is important for Türkiye in terms of maintaining its competitive advantage in trade with Europe.

Faik Tumba pointed out the risk of Türkiye falling behind in exports to Europe if it does not yet have an ETS system, saying, "Europe is our best trade partner. Türkiye has to maintain its trade with Europe not only in iron and steel but also in other product groups. For this reason, the ETS system will be an important step for our future exports."
