May 2024 | thyssenkrupp Materials Processing Europe and Autoliv, the world’s largest supplier of safety systems for the automotive industry, have agreed to expand their existing collaboration for the supply of steel to include low-CO2 steel.

thyssenkrupp Materials Processing Europe and Autoliv signed contracts for the supply of CO2-reduced steel. From the end of 2026, thyssenkrupp Materials Processing Europe will supply Autoliv with bluemint® Steel. Autoliv’s production network includes branches in 25 countries and 14 technical centers worldwide.

The plan underlines the long-term partnership between thyssenkrupp Materials Processing Europe and Autoliv: both companies are consistently pursuing their sustainability activities and have set themselves the goal of operating climate neutrally by 2030. Autoliv plans to achieve net-zero emissions across the entire supply chain by 2040. CO2-reduced and CO2-neutral materials are an essential lever for this.

Joint Projects with CO2-Reduced Steel Begin in 2024

The first joint projects with CO2-reduced steel – bluemint® recycled from thyssenkrupp Steel – are already starting this year, with the quantities being gradually increased over the next few years.

“We are delighted to be able to provide our customer Autoliv with even greater support on the road to CO2-neutral production in the future,” says Marcus Wöhl, CEO of thyssenkrupp Materials Processing Europe. “We process the emission-reduced and emission-neutral materials steel, stainless steel and aluminum for our customers. Our holistic sustainability strategy also includes consulting services, customer solutions, digital support and a fully transparent presentation of CO2 emissions via our PCF emissions certificate.”

thyssenkrupp Materials Processing Europe aims to contribute to the extensive reduction of its own CO2 emissions with various projects, such as the use of LEDs, roof refurbishments and the installation of photovoltaic systems.

“We are constantly striving to integrate sustainability in all our operations. The collaboration with thyssenkrupp Materials Processing will be a significant step in our aim to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in our products by utilizing low-emission steel and to achieve our goal of net-zero emissions across our supply chain by 2040,” says Cosmin Bakai, Global Raw-Material Area Director Supply Chain Autoliv.
