ECOS is looking for experts in the field of Steel as part of our work on Energy Intensive Industries to represent and defend environmental interests in the development of standards. Our experts provide us with technical and scientific input and represent us in technical standardisation and policy discussions.

As part of global efforts to combat climate change, the European sSteel industry is required to undergo great transformation in order to contribute to the decarbonisation process, and as part of this reducing emissions through innovations in energy and improving material circularity will be key, especially in the sectors which account for the largest share of demand including construction, mechanical machinery, steel based products and automotive, therefore experience in and understanding of these sectors is preferred.
