The German steel industry emits a significant amount, approximately 67 million tonnes of CO2 equivalent each year. Of this, several big players are responsible for a lot - for example, Thyssenkrupp is responsible for 2.5% of all CO2 emissions in the country.
In 2021, the German government announced its intention to invest $6 billion in steel research and technology, including hydrogen production, to reduce emissions from the steel industry.
The German metalworkers' union, IG Metall, is advocating for a four-day workweek without a pay raise for workers in the steel and metalworking industries ahead of collective bargaining negotiations in November. IG Metall's proposal is intended to improve workers' health and quality of life while also making the industry more attractive to younger workers and combatting expected job losses in the transition to green steel production.
