We continue to invest substantially in research and development. Innovations are vital not only for products but also for environmentally friendly manufacturing processes. The ongoing improvement of the environmental compatibility of production facilities is therefore an important component of innovation measures. voestalpine is committed to global climate targets and is working intensively on technologies aimed at decarbonizing steel production and lowering its CO2 emissions over the long term.

Further information about the voestalpine Group

  • History

    On May 13, 1938, in Linz-St. Peter, ground was broken for the Reichswerke Aktiengesellschaft für Erzbergbau und Eisenhütten “Hermann Göring”, a subsidiary of the Reichswerke AG Berlin founded a year earlier. This marked the beginning of voestalpine, around 80 years ago. 

    Since that date, the Group has celebrated many important milestones in its history: they include privatization in 1995; the Group becoming international; commissioning of the world’s largest pilot facility for the CO2-neutral production of green hydrogen in the steel industry in 2019; and the groundbreaking ceremony for the world’s most advanced special steel plant in Kapfenberg, to name but a few.

    Another important focus lies in decarbonizing steel production. We have already taken an important step towards decarbonization and the long-term reduction of CO2 emissions by commissioning the world’s largest hydrogen pilot facility, H2FUTURE.

  • Employee shareholding scheme

    Since 2000, voestalpine has offered its employees a shareholding scheme which was jointly developed by the Group’s management and Works Council.

    This innovative concept allows existing and former employees to acquire their own shares in the company.  By bundling their voting rights, they become a stable core shareholder, as well as profiting from voestalpine’s success as individual shareholders. Currently, around 25,300 employees are members of the employee shareholding scheme, together holding around 26 million shares.
