TERRY >> We have, roughly, 16 thousand neighbors that actually border the steel plant. MARY BETH >> We need to make sure that we are engaging with our community members. [ ♪ enegetic instrumental music ♪] ArcelorMittal inside transformingtomorrow Episode 10: Cleveland [Map: Cleveland, Ohio, United States] MARY BETH >> The ArcelorMittal Cleveland facility is a key player in the steel making world, [Mary Beth Holdford CR Manager, ArcelorMittal, USA] not only as a steel maker, but also as a huge community partner. TERRY >> We are the largest manufacturer within Cuyahoga County. [Terry Fedor General Manager, ArcelorMittal Cleveland] Not only do we have 1,700 direct paying jobs, We also affect the local community with another 8 thousand jobs. We have the most productive worforce in the world. We do 20 million tons in the U.S. and we're less that 20 thousand people. [Aditya Mittal GMB ArcerlorMittal, Head of Americas] We have a strong base, a strong foundation, but we can do better. And we know how to do better. We are in the midst of executing those plans. [Mike Hrosik Commercial Manager, ArcelorMittal USA] We are the only facility in North America that is within the city limits of a major metropoplitan area. With that comes a lot of responsibility. [As the biggest manufacturer in Cleveland, Corporate Responsibility is a priority for ArcelorMittal.] MARY BETH >> When people think of corporate responsibility in a developing market, they may think about a company actually investing in their community to build hospitals, to clean water. But here in the U.S., it's a different animal. All of those basic needs are already met. MARIE >> There's lots of different ways it's important for a company to participate [Marie Kittredge Community Leader, Cleveland] and some of it is creating good will, creating ownership, creating suppoprt for the company work, particularly in a community like Cleveland, where the factory is right in the middle of our community. MARY BETH >> We have neighbors in our backyard. We have schools. We have children running in the streets. So everything that we do in our business, we need to be mindful of the impact that we could potentially have on the stakeholders. MARK >> There is all these fears about not knowing about what's going on [Mark Granakis United Steel Workers Local President] in a plant, in that, you know, someday the whole plant's going to blow up like a nuclear disaster. We try and put those fears to bed as to what is going on here and share that with the community. RICH >> We have a community call line. When residents have questions [Rich Zovoda Environmental Manager, ArcelorMittal Cleveland] about our facility, they can call us 24 hours a day. and I will be out in the community trying to answer their questions. [Pat Harp Local Resident] I can pick up a phone and I can call there and I say, You know what? What are you doing on that hill? They explain it to you, in our language. Not those big words, you know? [As a major shipping channel, the Cuyahoga River is essential to the operation of the ArcelorMittal plant in Cleveland.] [How can the company use the river and restore its natural habitat at the same time?] MARY BETH >> The Cuyahoga River is, essentially, the lifeline of Cleveland. That is what started this community. That's what brought commerce the the community and industry to the community. And, essentially, all of the people that moved here and built homes here and started families here. And it's still a huge source of maritime business for companies like ArcelorMittal. JIM >> The river's essentially a box channel lined with sheet steel bulkhead. The bulkhead provides terrific separation [Jim White Cuyahoga River Remedial Action Plan] between the shorline and the river and provides the depth for the ships. But it eliminates aquatic habitat and plant life and growth, which makes it very hard for fish to have shelter and food to be able to migrate thru this channel. MARY BETH >> What ArcelorMittal has done is provided land that would allow fish a place to rest and eat before they needed to continue their travels. JIM >> This is one of the clear leaders of how industries should, in fact, co-exist with the environmental setting. [♪ background music ♪] TERRY >> You look out across this plant and the community was so supportive of us, so we feel that we owe it to them that we give back to the community. WOMAN >> Yes, they are engaging a little bit and they are telling us that they are doing things. MAN >> It's not like it was 50 years ago. They're much cleaner. WOMAN >> We don't just see the smokestacks and the pollution. We see what they're doing in a good way and how they're contributing to our environmental cause. MARIE >> I think ArcelorMittal, here, really sees themselves as a partner, as a neighborhood partner. MARY BETH>> If we can educate people on a day-to-day basis and let them know about the programs and the changes that we're making, I think that we're taking a step in the right direction to eventually calm some of those fears that people have.
