6 October 2021

The Department announced the Clean Steel Fund (CSF) in 2019 and it is currently in development. In 2019 we carried out a Call for Evidence seeking views and supporting evidence to help us develop the detailed design of the Fund, including on barriers to realising clean steel ambitions, and the opportunities to be gained in overcoming these. This Call for Evidence was open to all and we received responses from civil society, including trade associations and academics. These responses are being considered as the policy is designed.

The Government will continue to engage with a range of interested parties on the steel sector in the future.
