1 The indicators in this table have been developed over the period 2007-2016 as part of our approach to reporting under the four pillars of investing in our people, making steel more sustainable, enriching our communities, and transparent governance. This data table has evolved in line with the requirements of the Global Reporting Initiative. In 2014, we adopted 10 new sustainable development outcomes, and although these indicators were not selected to measure progress against these outcomes, they are listed here under our 10 outcomes. Envrionmental data presented in this table are provisional except where assured by Deloitte Audit.

2 From 2014 onwards we report dust, NOx and SOx emissions per tonne of steel produced as a more meaningful indicator than the absolute volume generated. Absolute volumes can be calculated using the Total production figures at the top of this table.

3 Whilst we undertake a review of our community investment reporting, this data is not reported at group level for 2016. Country level information can be found in each country sustainability report.

4 STEM = Science, technology, engineering and maths.

5 Further details of the estimated direct economic contribution are found in OUTCOME 10, which details our contribution to society. In 2016, the company undertook a review of all the taxes paid at a local level besides income tax. The total tax contribution published here are the result of that work, and represent a wider scope than reported in previous years. Details can be found in our Basis of Reporting.

6 ‘Royalties’ in 2016 are according to the scope of extractive industry reporting under the EU Accounting Directive 2013/34/EU, which is narrower than scope used in previous years. Other forms of royalty are now included elsewhere as appropriate.
