Since our company was founded, we have aimed to align all of our activity against four values: safety, sustainability, quality and leadership.


Success starts with keeping all our employees safe.

Every accident is avoidable and every employee working at ArcelorMittal – from the shop floor to the management committee - must hold that belief. This is at the heart of the supportive safety culture we must achieve at all operations.

Our people must be well trained and empowered to speak up about safety risks and concerns. Our golden rules must be rigorously implemented and followed. And our leadership should be a frequent presence on the shop floor, demonstrating that safety is at the core of how we think and act, always. With a refusal to accept anything less, we know we can succeed.


We want to be competitive and thrive in the world of tomorrow.

This means we must have a clear view of how the world is evolving, not only from an economic and market perspective, but also the social and environmental mega-trends that will shape our future.

Managing our business profitably through the cycle enables us to invest for the long-term, pursuing the opportunities that will exist for steel in an increasingly circular and decarbonized world and meeting the expectations of all our stakeholders. This will enable us to build the strongest platform for our company as well as make an important contribution to a better world for all.


Quality is essential to our competitive edge.

We must seek to exceed expectations in terms of our products, processes and performance, combining our deep operational knowledge with keen commercial acumen and a desire to innovate and expand the potential of steel.

We should aspire to achieve excellence in everything we do, inspiring our colleagues to develop new ideas and come out on top.   


We built and maintained our leadership position through visionary thinking and a willingness to constantly challenge the status quo and be open to doing things differently.

It is that approach that enabled us to consistently rank number one with the most demanding of customers. We never accept that the limits of our material have been reached and continually strive to produce ever smarter steels to help solve problems and build the world of tomorrow.

Within the highly competitive, complex and changing world in which we operate today, this is more critical than ever. We are highly motivated by the opportunities this brings to re-define steel for a new generation - driving innovation, pursuing new business models, creating new partnerships, and embracing diversity.

Our purpose: Smarter steels for people and planet

The purpose of ArcelorMittal is ‘Smarter steels for people and planet’.

We are living in an age of remarkable progress, where invention and human ingenuity are driving unprecedented advances in global development.

Technology has a critical role in this transformation, but so do the materials that build our world. As the world’s leading steel and mining company, we have an inherent stake in this and a clear responsibility.

Steel is as relevant as ever to the future success of our world. As one of the only materials to be completely reusable and recyclable, it will play a critical role in building the circular economy of the future. Steel will continue to evolve, becoming smarter, and increasingly sustainable.

At ArcelorMittal, our goal is to help build a better world with smarter steels. Steels made using innovative processes which are more efficient, use less energy, and emit significantly less carbon. Steels that are cleaner, stronger and reusable. Steels for electric vehicles and renewable energy infrastructure that will support societies as they transform through this century.

We foster this culture of innovation by putting research and development at the heart of our operations. We have some of the best and brightest people in the business – engineers who work for us because they get to tackle the most complex of problems. With approximately 158,000 employees, we are more than just a company, we are a community. We are driven by an entrepreneurial spirit and a passion for excellence, never accepting that the limits of our material have been reached. We will continue to push boundaries, whether developing technologies to reduce the carbon footprint of steel, transforming the built environment with our new construction solutions, 3D printing automotive parts using steel powders or, through the adoption of artificial intelligence and advanced automation across our operations. This is what it takes to be the steel company of the future.
