Decarbonisation pioneer in the steel industry: With GREEN STEEL, we’re one step ahead when it comes to sustainability.

Future-oriented solutions

GMH Gruppe GREEN STEEL makes our customers’ products more sustainable – thanks to climate-friendly production processes, even today:

Each kilogram of crude steel from our electric arc furnace causes 1.3 kilograms fewer 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 2050.

Electric arc furnace: Already low-emission

Direct CO2 emissions per kilogram of crude steel produced: 

Integrated steelmaking 1.7 kg 
Sector average 1.4 kg 
GMH Gruppe 0.4 kg
