SSAB and Wibe Group in partnership on fossil-free steel

Group news, Industry

SSAB and Storskogen’s business unit Wibe Group have reached an agreement on deliveries of fossil-free steel to be used in Wibe Group’s cable management systems, such as cable ladders and cable trays. The move fits seamlessly with both companies’ ambition to reduce carbon emissions and is a natural step in their long-standing collaboration.

As part of the commitment, Wibe Group will start to receive small batches of steel produced without carbon emissions in 2026, with volumes scaling-up annually as SSAB’s fossil-free production capacity increases. By using the fossil-free steel material, Wibe Group will be able to reduce the carbon emission footprint by up to 90 percent on the respective products. 

“This is an important and major step in our sustainability journey,” says Patrick Arcidiacono, CEO of Wibe Group. “This initiative from SSAB does not only align with our vision but also with our owner Storskogen’s target to reach net zero by 2045.”

“We are happy to welcome Wibe Group as a fossil-free partner,” says Thomas Hörnfeldt, VP of Sustainable Business at SSAB. “Traditional steel production represents a significant source of global CO2 emissions. By changing the way steel is produced, SSAB wants to cut emissions and create a fossil-free value chain with customers and partners.”
