We give sustainability a safe haven
Acting responsibly and conscientiously with the resources available to us will sooner or later become a License to Operate. Resources are limited. The sustainable use of them is an indispensable task in order to enable future generations to have a future worth living. Every individual will be directly or indirectly affected by climate change and the associated paradigm shift in society. As thyssenkrupp Marine Systems, we have a responsibility to make our contribution to a future worth living. With our sustainability strategy, that is presented in our first sustainability brochure, we ensure that our License to Operate will remain valid for generations to come.
With around 6,500 employees worldwide, we are a leading systems supplier in subsea and surface shipbuilding and in the field of maritime safety technologies. As a company of this size, we play a key role in society and assume responsibility for ecological, social and economic sustainability. This applies both to our own actions and to our products and technologies. We intend to use our comprehensive portfolio of capabilities to massively expand our activities in the field of civil, sustainable technologies and products and to support our customers with our capabilities on the road to sustainability.
Our sustainability roadmap
The reduction of our carbon footprint is certified by the Science Based Targets Initiative (SBTi) and is in line with the goals of the Paris Climate Change Agreement. By 2030, we will reduce our direct emissions from our own facilities and indirect emissions from electricity consumption by 30 percent and indirect emissions from customer use of products by 16 percent. We aim to achieve climate neutrality by 2045.
