Sustainability is an opportunity we can tackle together.


Creating a sustainable future

Energy usage in the industries of manufacturing, iron, steel, chemical, and petrochemical is high and fossil-fuel focused. In response, governments and businesses are beginning to set targets to reduce those carbon emissions and commit to sustainable energy solutions. To become carbon neutral by 2050, the industry will need to undergo a massive transformation.


Defossilization is essential for these industries, meaning companies will need to shift from standardised fossil fuels to alternative low-carbon energy sources to meet COreduction targets. Decarbonisation will require technological advancement and expertise in specific use cases to establish new energy systems, alternative energy sources based on green electricity, and cleaner methods of sustainable energy distribution and transport.


TÜV SÜD supports partners during this transition and with the highest degree of transparency.
