Corporate Social responsibility

At U. S. Steel Košice we have a long tradition of honest business practice, and we act responsibly towards our employees, customers, suppliers and other stakeholders. We regularly provide information about our business results in the financial, social and environmental fields, and in particular about our influence on local communities and the region we operate in.

U. S. Steel Košice is also one of the founder members of the Business Leaders Forum, an informal association of companies which since 2004 has systematically promoted the principles of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) in Slovakia.

Our corporate values are based on what we call the Gary Principles, which were set up very early in the 20th century by Judge Albert Gary, one of the founders of the United States Steel Corporation in Pittsburgh, USA.

  • I believe that when a thing is right, it will ultimately and permanently succeed.

  • The highest rewards come from honest and proper practice. Bad results come in the long run from selfish, unfair and dishonest conduct.

  • I believe in competition…that the race should be won by the swiftest, and that success should come to him who is most earnest and active and persevering.

  • I believe that no industry can permanently succeed that does not treat its employees equitably and humanely.

  • I believe thoroughly in publicity. The surest and wisest of all regulation is public opinion.

  • If we are to succeed in business, we must do it on principles that are honest, fair, lawful and just.

  • We must put and keep ourselves on a platform so fair, so high, so reasonable, that we will attract the attention and invite and secure the approval of all who know what we are doing.

  • We do not advocate combinations or agreements in restraint of trade, nor action of any kind which is opposed to the laws or to the public welfare.

  • We must never forget that our rights and interests are and should be subservient to the public welfare, that the rights and interests of the individual must always give way to those of the public.

Those key values are also embedded in our corporate S.T.E.E.L. Principles: Safety First as the highest value, Trust and respect towards our employees and partners, Environmentally-friendly activities in steelmaking operations, and overall Ethical behavior and Lawful business conduct.

  • In return we require honesty, integrity and transparency from our business partners. These values have been binding for us since the very first day we started developing our business activity in Slovakia. From the outset we have insisted on respect for laws and regulations and maintenance of ethical conduct by our suppliers as well.
  • Ethical conduct forms the basis of trust which is necessary for the long-term commercial success of our Company.


The results of our responsible approach are evident in all fields of our activity, and they are published in cross-section on the pages of our web-site.
Further information is available in our CSR Reports, which form an integral part of our Company’s Annual Reports dating back to the year 2011.
