Sustainable products produced in a sustainable way
Renewable energies, Industry 4.0, sustainable mobility and resource-efficient processes are high on our innovation agenda.
We are working hard to ensure that in the future thyssenkrupp stands for sustainable products produced in a sustainable way. We aim to spend annually around 2.5 percent of our turnover – excluding trade and distribution – on research and development.
For this we not only need lots of good ideas, but also have to define the entire path from idea to successful product. Our Product Lifecycle Management system describes the stages of product development.
Our TechCenters play an important role in this. They can develop ideas very quickly to the point where we can make an informed decision about a market launch.
Current studies show that cooperation across traditional sector and technology boundaries is becoming increasingly important. With its diverse technologies, this is one of thyssenkrupp’s major strengths.
