sustainable steel in cars? Porsche is embarking on such a journey.

Revolutionizing the Steel Horizon: Porsche and its Green Pact with H2 Green Steel.


In the ever-evolving saga of automotive engineering, Porsche AG and the forward-thinking minds at H2 Green Steel have etched a groundbreaking chapter. This isn’t just a pact; it’s a shift to the steel that courses through the veins of our beloved Porsches.

Think of it as German mechanical engineering casting a wizard’s spell on a Porsche, while H2 Green Steel concocts an eco-magic potion. The outcome? Not just any steel, but a lean, green, driving machine. Our lumbering giant, the Cayenne, could soon be clad in an eco-armoured suit, slashing carbon emissions as it conquers the asphalt jungle. It’s a tango of sustainability between German precision and Swedish innovation.

Average fuel consumption might be a petrolhead’s metric, but imagine the satisfaction of knowing your Porsche is now clad in steel with a significantly lower carbon footprint. Much like choosing the perfect variant – SUV over Coupe – Porsche, with this move, is opting for a greener steel variant. 

H2 Green Steel is pioneering a process that’s nearly CO2-free – a game-changer where emissions often overshadow innovation. Hydrogen and renewable energy sources result in a carbon footprint that’s up to 95% lower than conventional steel production behemoths.

And here’s the numerical poetry: 35,000 tons of this low-emission steel are set to find their home in Porsche vehicles annually. Compare that to the 220,000 tons of steel used in 2022, and you’ll grasp the seismic shift we’re witnessing.

Barbara Frenkel, the maestro of Porsche’s procurement, envisions a carbon-neutral future, and this pact is a crescendo in that symphony. It’s a story of evolution, where steel isn’t just a raw material but a conscious choice, a companion in Porsche’s journey towards sustainability.

As we anticipate Porsches of the future, let’s also relish in the fact that the steel beneath the sleek exteriors is a testament to a greener era.
