Bruynzeel Storage Systems and ArcelorMittal on a continuous journey towards ‘net zero’ CO2-impact

A good fit!

“Bruynzeel Storage Systems BV and ArcelorMittal have an excellent longstanding relationship. Both companies are on a continuous journey towards ‘net zero’ CO2-impact for their production processes and products.

Bruynzeel - ‘The footprint reduction company’

“Sustainability is part of our DNA for a long time and Bruynzeel is known as ‘the footprint reduction company’. This not only means reducing the need of our customers in square meters but certainly also reducing their environmental footprint.

Steel is an essential component of our end products thus availability of steel is key. The characteristics of steel are hard to replace: steel is durable, flexible and easy to recycle, but making steel has a relatively high COimpact.

We want to accelerate our industry’s transformation in reducing its carbon print and we can make a big difference for our clients if leading steel producing companies like ArcelorMittal develop the highest standards in environmental friendly steel. 

Bruynzeel is climate neutral in its own operations (scope 1 & 2) and committed to reach net zero (scope 3) by latest 2045. And the XCarb® green steel certificate we received underpins a fact-based back tracking towards our customers,” concludes Bart Sijben.

About Bruynzeel Storage Systems Systems BV

In 1897, at the age of 22, Cornelius Bruynzeel Sr. founded the Arend (Eagle), a steam powered joinery business in Rotterdam, which was renamed to Bruynzeel in 1920. Their experience with storage solutions started in 1953, when Bruynzeel started providing wooden shelving systems. In 1970, the first steel mobile shelving systems were developed and successfully introduced to the market, unlocking a new era in possibilities to help our customers in utilising space and preserving their valuable documents and collections.

Now, Bruynzeel is the market leader in Europe for innovative and space creating solutions. It is Bruynzeel’s mission to support companies worldwide in reducing their CO2 footprint by using Bruynzeel space creating solutions.
