Investment in education
Through education programmes, Tata Steel
aims to raise the profile of steel and its
environmental credentials, as well as increase
participation in kerbside recycling schemes.
Tata’s workshops take place in primary and
secondary schools, as well as in wider settings
such as at WI groups, Scout, Girl Guide and
Brownie meetings. Tailored to different age
groups, the programme explains the
importance of packaging as a product, and
the lifecycle of steel once it has been
placed in the recycling bin.
The aim is to engage with more people and to
increase participation in recycling schemes.
For Tata Steel, schools are an effective route
to influence behaviour.
