"Life Cycle Assessment as a basis for Sustainability Thinking" by Louis Brimacombe.  

With the emergence of sustainability as a key topic and challenge for all materials and industries, the steel industry initially reflected upon the environmental impact of processes and sites, and this appeared to present more of a threat than an opportunity. As the industry realised the bigger picture in terms of steel products in society, the sustainability of steel becomes much more recognisable. Life Cycle Assessment is one of the tools that has helped to articulate these benefits and to realise the social value contribution of steel.
