Good news for the Climate Change Conference: net-zero in the second half of the century is achievable
At thyssenkrupp, sustainability is part of our business model. Climate protection is one of our company’s strategic goals. We’re committed to the targets of the Paris Agreement. And we believe that net zero greenhouse gas emissions in the second half of the century is an achievable goal.
For this we will need to avoid greenhouse gas emissions wherever it makes sense. This will mean among other things making increased use of renewable energies. However, the volatility of renewables presents consumers with new challenges. Energy from renewable sources is not always available in consistent amounts. Luckily storage technologies are already available to manage intermittency.
Where it does not make sense to avoid greenhouse gas emissions, they can be recycled. With the right technologies we can capture CO2 and reuse it as a raw material. thyssenkrupp is already working very successfully on this.
We’d like to tell you more about these technologies and other good news stories on this website. You’ll see that where climate protection is concerned, technology is part of the solution.
