Environmental Product Declaration

Nippon Steel have acquired Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) for our Oil Country Tubular Goods (OCTG) & Line Pipe products. This have been the first Japanese tubular products to have such declaration.
"Japan EPD Program by SuMPO" is a Japanese EPD program operated by SuMPO(Sustainable Management Promotion Organization) that quantifies environmental impact of manufactured goods through lifecycle according to ISO14025. Quantification scope consists of mining of raw materials, goods production, disposal, and its recyclability. This allows customers to adequately assess environmental impact when using our products, based on third-party information.
For full EPD, please access SuMPO website and search with following registration numbers.
