Achieving climate-neutral steel with a green transport chain


Achieving climate-neutral steel with a green transport chain

DBeco plus is bringing climate-neutral steel production one step closer at ArcelorMittal.

Carbon-neutral steel production is high on the agenda of ArcelorMittal, the world's leading steel group. As part of this, the company has been working intensively with DB Cargo for years to make its logistics steadily greener. 2022 saw investments in multifunctional double wagons, for example, which have a higher load volume and therefore reduce the amount of shunting required. 

The DB Cargo sales team with Christoph Tews, Laura Grzeskowiak and Katja Eschke presented the certification documents to the Managing Director Dr. Ralf Bösler and the Head of Transport/Logistics Ellen Finke.

All-round climate-friendly travel

Since last year, ArcelorMittal has also been using DBeco plus services to transport its freight wagons as sustainably as possible. This means that all transports in Germany, Austria and the Netherlands run on 100% renewable power. Transports to and from Poland will be added in 2023. This is helping the company save more than 2,000 tonnes of CO2 compared to conventional rail freight transport. And that is on top of the roughly 80% reduction in CO2 emissions that freight train transport unlocks compared to heavy goods vehicles. ArcelorMittal is therefore making the green supply chain an important part of its push towards green steel.
