North American Stainless Commitment to the Environment
North American Stainless is committed to environmentally responsible operations as we continually improve performance and management systems with consideration for environmental impact. This includes the development of a low-emission melt shop and a fully integrated stainless steel manufacturing facility that reduces transportation needs. NAS is a large recycler of steel with a long history of advocacy to reduce waste generation, reuse materials and recycle both metallic and non-metallic materials.
Our leadership as environmental stewards extends throughout the company as NAS employees are provided with training and resources to comply with all environmental regulations and are held accountable for adhering to them.
NAS is an inaugural member of the Kentucky EXCEL (Excellence in Environmental Leadership) Program. We also participate in a number of environmental community outreach projects that focus on environmental education, waste management and recycling.
