Willem Vermeulen, Chief Procurement Officer at Tata Steel Europe, is at the forefront of the push at Tata Steel to better itself. One of the ways Willem, and Tata Steel, are doing that is by changing the way the company views value; from a purely monetary viewpoint to a broader vision that includes societal issues. Willem is enthusiastically implementing this policy, to contribute to the TSN vision to become a clean, green and circular steel company that is sustainable in every sense. This has led to greener choices when it comes to scope 1, scope 2 and scope 3 emission reductions, the implementation of a responsible sourcing policy, and measures to reduce the nuisance for the local community. For instance the installation of a de-dusting installation for one of the plants, sustainable fuel for outbound logistics or low carbon content zinc.
