Klöckner & Co group has launched the new Nexigen® brand bringing together the entire portfolio of sustainable products and services.

Under the Nexigen® brand, the Company and its worldwide subsidiaries will be able to provide transparent, carbon reduced solutions in the three categories of materials, processing and logistics.

Nexigen® offers amongst other things a categorisation for transparent carbon emissions and can assist customers with the reliable procurement of CO2-reduced steel and metal products, providing full transparency about their carbon footprint from raw material to production. Combined with a comprehensive range of logistics and circularity solutions and Sustainability Advisory Services, Kloeckner will continue to support its customers in building sustainable supply chains.

The Nexigen® categorisation for transparent carbon emissions

Nexigen® categories range from START (with a physical footprint from 1,750 to 1,400 kg CO₂ per metric ton) to PRIME (400 to 0 kg CO₂ per metric ton). “Balanced Steel” is a separate category for “re-balanced” green steel. This means that for different steel categories originating from the same production facility, manufacturers may use a calculated “re-balanced” carbon footprint resulting from the overall volume of emissions generated in the entire facility.

Peter Whiting CEO of Kloeckner Metals UK: “As pioneers of a sustainable steel industry we have taken an important step forward with introduction of Nexigen® and placed sustainability at the core of Klockner & Co’s growth strategy. We have always emphasised our commitment to sustainable practices and are excited that we will be able to support our partners and customers in their green transformation and making their progress in sustainability visible.”
