The World Steel Association was founded as the International Iron and Steel Institute on 19 October 1967. It changed its name to World Steel Association on 6 October 2008. Worldsteel is a non-profit organisation with headquarters in Brussels, Belgium. A second office in Beijing, China, opened in April 2006. The World Steel Association (worldsteel) is one of the largest and most dynamic industry associations in the world. worldsteel represents approximately 170 steel producers (including 19 of the world's 20 largest steel companies), national and regional steel industry associations, and steel research institutes. worldsteel members produce around 85% of the world's steel. Worldsteel acts as the focal point for the steel industry, providing global leadership on all major strategic issues affecting the industry, particularly focusing on economic, environmental and social sustainability. Worldsteel promotes steel and the steel industry to customers, the industry, media and the general public. It assists its members to develop the market for steel. worldsteel promotes a zero-accident working environment for steel industry employees and contractors.

Study: Life cycle assessment approach to vehicle emissions regulation recommended
13 July, 2013
A new study commissioned by the Low Carbon Vehicle Partnership (LowCVP) says that with increasing efficiencies of powertrains and fuels that contribute to lower emissions during the driving phase of the car, the use of tailpipe CO2e emissions will become "almost irrelevant in terms of focusing on true carbon profiles’ of future vehicles. This study further underscores the need for a life cycle approach in future automotive emissions regulations as vehicle production phase emission impacts become more significant.
