The aim is to become a Company that is accepted by the society. Throughout our business process, we impact the society in many ways, striving to be a good corporate citizen and believing in giving back to the society.

Giving away our share of kindness is not a part of a philanthropic endeavor, but a larger social responsibility that the society itself has entrusted upon us. Throughout our business process we gladly look for ways through which we may extend a helping hand towards the society. In an attempt to fulfill this responsibility we have successfully launched, social and health welfare projects.

The production of steel is grossly dependent on large amount of coal feedstock that releases clouds of carbon dioxide emissions in the atmosphere. Clean coal technology is an efficient technology which reduces the emissions of Sulfur Dioxide and Nitrogen Dioxide resulting in plant efficiency. During 2014, Mughal Steel met another milestone through the induction of clean coal technology. The Company is the pioneer in augmenting the utilization of coal gasification also known as the clean coal technology introduced in the industrial sector of Pakistan. The coal gasification not only yields efficiency in production and reduces the operating cost, but also accredits the company in fulfilling its strong commitment towards environmental sustainability. This has further strengthened the image of Mughal Steel as an environmental sensitive company that operates in compliance to the international health and environmental standards which has encouraged the company to invest in the clean coal technology.
