Burkhard Dahmen, CEO and Chairman of SMS Group, said: “Our companies have a common goal to reduce carbon emissions from iron and steel production, as the industry is not only key to economic prosperity, it is also one of the largest CO2 emitters. We are therefore very proud to team up with Tata Steel and are committed to supporting the company with its decarbonization roadmap. This represents an important contribution in the fight against climate change and is beneficial for the Indian economy as a whole and especially for the communities located around the steel plants.”
