Qatar Steel has joined as a member of ResponsibleSteel topping over 150 organizations from across the steel value chain and civil society. ResponsibleSteel is the only global multi-stakeholder standard and certification initiative for responsibly sourced and produced steel.
Qatar Steel was established in 1974 as the first integrated iron and steel plant in the Arabian Gulf, establishing itself as a pioneer in the region of the Natural Gas based DRI-EAF production route and has solidified its position as a leading force in the steel industry within the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) region over the last 49 years. Beginning commercial production in 1978, the company has relentlessly strived to meet the growing global demand for steel, providing unmatched quality, flexibility, and reliability in its wide range of products and services.
The plant comprises various operational facilities, including direct reduction plants, electric arc furnaces, ladle furnaces, continuous billet casting machines, rolling mills, and lime calcination plants. These cutting-edge facilities leverage state-of-the-art technology to ensure efficient and high-quality production of direct reduced iron, steel billets, and reinforcing steel bars (rebar). Since 2003, Qatar Steel has been fully owned by Industries Qatar (IQ), a subsidiary of QatarEnergy with investments in the petrochemicals, fertilizer, and steel sectors. In alignment with the Qatar National Vision 2030, Qatar Steel aims to play a pivotal role in creating a sustainable future. Our goal is to establish ourselves as the leading supplier of sustainable steel in the region and internationally. Qatar Steel maintains the “1 Rosette” rating in the Sustainable Construction Steel (SCS) Certification scheme and a “Very Good” rating in BES 6001 Responsible Sourcing certification, granted by the authority of Certification Authority for Reinforcing Steel (CARES), for the production of continuous cast steel billets and hot rolled steel bars for the reinforcement of concrete. Qatar Steel has selected CARES for ResponsibleSteel certification audit which will be initiated soon.
