No downstream heat treatment, CO2 savings for customers
GMH Gruppe Green Steel
Decarbonisation pioneer in the steel industry: With Green Steel, we’re one step ahead when it comes to sustainability.
GMH Gruppe Green Steel makes our customers’ products more sustainable – thanks to climate-friendly production processes, even today:
Each tonne of crude steel from our electric arc furnace causes 80 % less CO2 emissions than comparable steel from integrated steelmaking routes. We use 100 % scrap as feedstock. Our value stream saves emissions thanks to climate-friendly logistics. New sustainable measures and innovative products are constantly being added. Above all: We have a clear, realistic roadmap for how we will produce our already low-emission steel in a completely climate-neutral way by 2039.
Our Green Steel logo combines all the measures that make products more sustainable for our customers.
Measures: We are always improving
- We use the growing infrastructure for green electricity and hydrogen in Europe
