In 2019, Thyssenkrupp has set itself clear targets: the Group aims to be climate neutral by 2050 and a reduction of 30 percent emissions is planned for 2030.
The steel business of Thyssenkrupp is responsible for some 95% of the Group’s total emissions. Thyssenkrupp Steel has therefore defined a clear climate strategy to contribute to the Group’s climate targets.
Thyssenkrupp Steel is pursuing an open approach and focusing on two parallel, equally important routes: the avoidance of CO2 through the use of hydrogen (“Carbon Direct Avoidance”, CDA) and the use of CO2 produced in steelmaking (“Carbon Capture and Usage”, CCU).
