SSAB and DS Stålprofil begin a fossil-free steel partnership with deliveries starting in 2026


Steel profile manufacturer DS Stålprofil and steelmaker SSAB have announced a partnership for deliveries of fossil-free steel gradually starting in 2026. Denmark-based DS Stålprofil plans to use the fossil-free steel in its roof cladding and facade products.

The partnership will further strengthen DS Stålprofil’s position as a provider of sustainable, long service life, low-maintenance building solutions and brings SSAB closer to its aim to help create a fossil-free value chain.

“We are extremely happy to have DS Stålprofil as a partner for fossil-free steel products from SSAB”, says Jan Meier, Sales Director in SSAB Europe. “Together we will support and enable the construction industry to meet the future demanding targets for C02 reductions in new buildings. Building sustainably — not only in use phase but also from the materials used for the building — is becoming more and more important. And with SSAB Fossil-free™ steel we can really make a difference for this industry.”

"In the shift towards a new, low-carbon economy, our steel products will be a key contributor for contractors, architects, and builders to meet their climate goals,” Thomas Rasmussen, CEO of DS Stålprofil, said, “The unique, fossil-free steel has a long service life and is 100% recyclable. We are looking forward to an even stronger partnership with SSAB and to offer our clients the same high-quality steel cladding as always, but now with an even stronger sustainable profile. This way, we are both responsible and take part in creating a more sustainable future."
DS Stålprofil is Cradle to Cradle Certified®, which is a sustainability guiding principle for future company activities.

SSAB plans to launch fossil-free steel on a commercial scale during 2026 and to largely eliminate carbon dioxide emissions from their own operations in around 2030. SSAB works with iron ore producer LKAB and energy company Vattenfall as part of the HYBRIT initiative to develop a value chain for fossil-free iron- and steel production, replacing the coking coal traditionally used for iron ore-based steelmaking with fossil-free electricity and hydrogen. This process virtually eliminates carbon dioxide-emissions in steel production.
