BE Group signs letter of intent with H2 Green Steel regarding fossil-free steel
BE Group AB (”BE Group”) and H2 Green Steel (”H2GS”) have signed a letter of intent (so called “term sheet”) regarding cooperation and distribution of fossil-free steel at the Nordic market. The agreement means that BE Group will have the capacity to deliver the steel to its customers starting from 2025. The new cooperation is also an important step in BE Group’s ambition to, in the long run, offer a more complete assortment of sustainable steel. As an independent steel distributor, BE Group is having discussions with several European steel producers.
H2GS has the ambition to start the steel production in 2024 and by 2030 at the latest, they plan to have a production capacity of five million tons of high-quality steel. In the production process of the fossil-free steel, the carbon dioxide emissions are reduced by up to 95 percent and the aim for H2GS is to reduce emissions further.
“We are glad that we will have the opportunity to offer fossil-free steel from H2GS to our customers. A part of our sustainability work is to help small and mid-sized companies, who often don’t buy steel in large quantities, to buy sustainable steel at competitive prices”, says Peter Andersson, CEO at BE Group.
