Content spotlight: Decarbonizing steel
When automaker BMW invested in US clean steel startup Boston Metal, and Mercedes Benz bought a stake in Swedish startup H2 Green Steel, the investments represented more than the greening of an industrial portfolio. They marked the first steps in the decarbonization of steel — a process that will require the reinvention of not only how steel is made but essentially a reimagining of the entire steel supply chain. Learn more about green steel’s viability and the automotive industry’s move to reduce its carbon footprint.

Mining companies operate in an increasingly complex, demanding, and uncertain business environment. We help our clients recognize the strategic implications of movements in commodity markets, stakeholder expectations, and technologies, and act upon those to enhance their competitive position and ensure superior value creation.
Heinz Pley, Global Head of Metals and Mining
From automotive and aerospace to engineering and construction, metals companies have provided the essential materials that make up the world around us for decades. Now, with sustainability at the top of the agenda, today’s metals businesses must work with stakeholders to continue supplying necessary goods while reducing their carbon footprint and supporting the scale up of the hydrogen economy. We help clients evaluate their business model and gain a competitive edge by embedding circular customer value chains and decarbonizing processes at the center of operations.
Nils Naujok, Partner
The mining industry is in a period of profound change. The energy transition and broader sustainability and corporate responsibility considerations are front-of-mind with investors, customers, employees, governments and local communities, and are having an intense impact on the mining industry. We help clients navigate this complex change through defining strategic pathways and developing operating models that best position our clients for success in this changing landscape.
