“Every individual steel company is looking at what they can do," said Catherine Cobden, president and CEO of the Canadian Steel Producers Association. “Members in our organization announced a net zero call-to-action plan. It’s an aspirational goal and we do take the issue of climate change seriously.”
“I can’t stress enough how significant a transformation this is,” says Catherine Cobden, CEO of the Canadian Steel Producers Association (CSPA), which made the net-zero pledge in March 2020. “It is an aspirational goal, and it will take a significant effort to achieve it.”
Catherine Cobden, president and chief executive of the Canadian Steel Producers Association, said her organization has lobbied for “green procurement” policies in government and that the industry has set a target to reduce its emissions to net zero by 2050, and called the decision to use Chinese structural steel in the Pattullo Bridge “a blow.”
“Those policies continue to concern us — ‘Made in America’ failed to embrace the integrated nature that we have in the steel business,” said Catherine Cobden, head of the Canadian Steel Producers Association.
