Sustainable Steel Buyers Platform

RMI requests information from North American steelmakers seeking to produce low-emissions steel.

RMI is building a Sustainable Steel Buyers Platform to aggregate buyer demand for low-emissions steel towards an initial commercial-scale purchase in North America. By bringing together committed buyers and leading producers, we hope to help enable deployment of a first-of-its-kind, commercial-scale low emissions steel facility in North America.

RMI has opened a Request for Information (RFI) process on behalf of a group of committed, low-emission steel buyers to learn what North American steelmakers need to make this happen. We are currently looking for suppliers that may be positioned to respond, to help shape emissions thresholds, contract structure, volume requirements, delivery parameters, financing needs, potential production pathways, and certification options. The RFI responses will inform the subsequent development of a Request for Proposal that will be issued by the buyers’ group to secure low-emissions steel offtake agreements in North America.  You can access the RFI here.

Your feedback is key to making the Sustainable Steel Buyers Platform work and to creating a vibrant market for North American-made low-emissions steel. Please submit your RFI responses using this format via email to Lachlan Wright ( or Chathurika Gamage ( by the 31st December.
