Sustainable and responsible action
We assume responsibility – for our employees, customers, public authorities, society, our neighborhood and the environment. Our understanding of sustainability is based on the classic overall concept of the United Nations: It is important to meet the requirements of the present generation without compromising the opportunities of future generations to fulfill their own requirements.
Sustainability is firmly embedded in the Group strategy. We consider sustainability to be a key driver of innovation and a continuous process for improving the economic, ecological and social performance of the company. Sustainable and responsible business operations are an integral part of our corporate culture and everyday practice.
„Our goal: climate neutral steel production”
„To make our production largely climate-neutral by 2045, we focus on the use of hydrogen in steel production and at the same time on the conversion of CO2 emissions into chemical raw materials within the scope of the Carbon2Chem technology. The sufficient supply of regeneratively produced, decarbonized hydrogen is decisive for the transformation of our steel production. This requires considerable entrepreneurial and political efforts and a coordinated hydrogen strategy.“
