Press Release | ArcelorMittal becomes an Official Partner of the 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games
ArcelorMittal is one of the world’s leading steel and mining company, with a presence in 60 countries and primary steelmaking facilities in 16 countries. In 2022, ArcelorMittal had revenues of $79.8 billion and crude steel production of 59 million metric tonnes, while iron ore production reached 45.3 million metric tonnes.
Using its innovation and high-quality knowledge, ArcelorMittal becomes an official partner of the 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games, held in Paris. The steel production company will be responsible for manufacturing the Olympic torches and cauldrons, which will be lit through the opening ceremonies and throughout the Games.
ArcelorMittal’s torches and cauldrons will contribute to Paris’ Olympic environmental ambition as they will have a low carbon footprint. The company will reveal their method of production later on in the year, but this could be down to the use of recycled steel or low carbon energy.
Lakshmi Mittal, Executive Chairman of ArcelorMittal, commented: “We are very proud to be an Official Partner of the Paris 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games. This global event, the most famous and engaging sports event in the world, resonates with the values that drive our group and all of our 158,000 employees around the world: the desire to constantly raise the bar; inclusion and diversity; and the quest for net zero, illustrated by the Paris 2024 ambition to limit its CO2 footprint. It is a great honour for ArcelorMittal and for me to contribute to this exceptional celebration of sport.”
