Swiss Steel Group: A companion for sustainability in the aviation industry

Emmenbrücke / Witten, May 2024 – Swiss Steel Group presents a comprehensive white paper highlighting the significant changes and challenges facing the aviation industry in achieving net-zero emissions targets by 2050.

The aviation industry is faced with the urgent task of making its contribution to global climate protection efforts. Despite its comparatively low share of around 4 percent of total greenhouse gas emissions in the EU, the aviation industry has one of the fastest growing emission volumes, which is mainly due to the disproportionate increase in passenger numbers.

In order to achieve the ambitious climate targets, far-reaching changes are required along the entire aviation value chain. This includes the use of sustainable materials, the development of alternative drive technologies, the improvement of engine efficiency and the reduction of climate-relevant non-CO2 effects. At the same time, these measures must ensure that supply chains remain efficient, safe and short.

The Swiss Steel Group’s white paper analyzes the consequences of these challenges and presents innovative solutions. The focus is on the crucial role of the Swiss Steel Group in providing high-quality steels for sustainable aircraft designs. Our products make a significant contribution to reducing the environmental impact and increasing the efficiency of modern aircraft.

Frank Koch, CEO of Swiss Steel Group, explains: “The aviation industry is at a turning point. Our high-quality special steels are a key component in the development of sustainable and efficient aircraft. We are proud to make a significant contribution to achieving climate targets with our products and to help shape the future of aviation.”

The Swiss Steel Group’s sustainability efforts encompass a wide range of measures, which are described in detail in the white paper. These include, among others:

Innovative materials: developing and providing steels that are lighter and more durable, reducing fuel consumption and emissions.

Increasing efficiency: supporting the aviation industry in optimizing production processes and implementing efficient engines.

Sustainable supply chains: Ensuring short, safe and efficient supply chains that minimize environmental impact.


The Swiss Steel Group is actively committed to putting its expertise and innovative strength at the service of global climate protection efforts and thus making a sustainable contribution to the transformation of the aviation industry.
