Sustainability & Climate Protection

Our contribution to the Green Deal

The Green Deal is intended to make Europe climate-neutral and fit for a sustainable future by the middle of the century. We put ourselves to the test and looked at which components of the Green Deal thyssenkrupp is already fulfilling.

Introducing Najat Aya. An engineer working on the future of steel production.

Three technologies for a successful energy turnaround

Before we can look back on a successful energy turnaround, there are still some challenges to be mastered.

Food waste: the pressure is on

In Germany, a whopping 55 kilograms of food per person end up in the garbage can instead of on the table every year.

Innovation in deep-sea fishing

With oXeanpedia we make a small contribution to minimize the impact of fishing on the ecology of the oceans.

The path of green hydrogen

The light H2 molecule could become the key to a successful energy transition. If it is "green".

Renewable energies as an enabler

We are already working on promising technologies to make steel production sustainable.

Recycling in an endless loop

Tinplate cans are one of the most environmentally friendly packaging materials of all.

Green hydrogen for green steel: Paving the way to Hydrogen Valley

thyssenkrupp aims to be climate neutral by 2050. To achieve this we are gradually converting our steel production to direct reduction with climate-neutral hydrogen. For the transformation to succeed, large quantities of the light H2 molecule are needed. Together with the energy company STEAG we are taking the first step toward a local hydrogen economy in the Ruhr region.

Carbon2Chem: when emissions become valuable substances

With our innovative technology Carbon2Chem we convert climate-damaging CO2 into valuable raw materials.

#climateneutral: National hydrogen strategy – not a journey to tackle alone

The national hydrogen strategy is to establish hydrogen as an energy carrier. Here are the most important facts.
