BEYOND – We think sustainability beyond standards
One of the greatest challenges of our time is the responsible use of the resources available to us. They are limited, unequally distributed and essential for our economy. Sustainable action is therefore indispensable to ensure that future generations will also have a tomorrow worth living. Because from an ecological as well as a social and economic point of view, nothing less than the future of all of us is at stake. For example, every individual will be directly or indirectly affected by climate change.
With around 380 locations in more than 30 countries, as the biggest mill-independent materials trader and service provider in the western world we have a particular responsibility here. That's why we at thyssenkrupp Materials Services are setting a good example. While the European Union has committed to climate neutrality from 2050, we will achieve this goal as early as 2030. To achieve this, we have firmly anchored sustainability in all its facets in our corporate strategy: The Strategy House Vision.
In doing so, our approach goes beyond the internationally recognized ESG standards. With BEYOND we have added points to these guidelines that are of central importance to us and the success of our business. As a market leader in Materials Services we also aim to be a leader in sustainability. With BEYOND clean we are manifesting our commitment to operate on a climate-neutral basis from 2030 and to continuously reduce all forms of environmental pollution. With BEYOND green, we underpin our commitment to decarbonize supply chains and comply with social standards with sustainable products and services. With BEYOND good, we are reinforcing our claim to contribute to greater social justice as a responsible member of the global community.
