                  AK Steel Featured on "Earth" TV Program

                  AK Steel was recently featured in a special TV segment as part of the "EARTH" TV program on Fox Business Network. Our segment focused on our sustainability work with footage from our AK Steel Middletown Works and Research and Innovation Center. We hope you will be inspired by the important work our employees are doing every day to reduce, reuse and recycle water critical to the steelmaking process, and our role in making steel the world's most recycled material.

                  AK Steel 2018 Sustainability Report

                  I’m pleased to share our 2018 Sustainability Report with you. I hope you will learn more about the goals and results from our company by reading this report.

                  From an environmental standpoint, 2018 was an excellent year. Many of our plants set records for both air and water compliance, demonstrating strong commitment throughout our business. Last year for example, we reduced hazardous waste by more than 3,400 tons and increased our renewable energy usage by 21 percent. In 2019, our sustainability initiatives are also projected to save the company $1.5 to $3 million. ?

                  While we have been committed to sustainability across our sites and produced a sustainability report for many years, this is the second year in our ongoing plan to share more of our goals and results. That includes information about the sustainable practices and projects at our steelmaking operations where we produce innovative carbon, electrical and stainless steels, in addition to sharing the good work of our employees and giving back to the communities where we live and work.

                  We also believe it is important to provide some perspective about our work in the steelmaking business. For instance, many people are surprised when they learn that steel is the most recycled material on the planet—significantly more steel is recycled than paper and plastic products combined. ?

                  I hope you will read more in the pages that follow about our policies and practices related to Human Rights, Diversity and Community; Environmental Responsibility; Sustainable Projects and Energy; Health and Safety; and Corporate Governance and Ethics.

                  We are proud of our ongoing progress, and are committed to growing additional opportunities as we focus on providing innovative steel solutions to meet our customers’ needs today and for the future.
