About us

The German Steel Association (Wirtschaftsvereinigung Stahl) represents the political interests of the steelproducing companies in Germany – and their more than 80,000 employees – in dealings with politicians, business and the public.

The central concern of the organisation is to actively influence future political conditions so that steel can be produced sustainably and competitively in Germany.

Our mission: Political representation of interests

The core mission of the German Steel Association is the political representation of interests. A prerequisite for this is participation in the social discourse on topics relevant to the industry: Involvement in value chains, sustainability and future orientation of the industry as a technology provider are central elements. For targeted representation of interests, the association has offices in Berlin, Brussels and Düsseldorf.

Steel in the political network

Depending on the topic and the addressee, it can make sense to represent industry interests together with partners: To this end, the German Steel Association forms alliances and joint projects with other organisations or institutes in Germany. For example, the association is networked with the European steel industry lobby EUROFER, the world steel association worldsteel and the Federation of German Industries (BDI).

The energy-intensive industries jointly represent their interests for an energy and climate policy that takes into account the international competitiveness of Germany as an industrial location. In addition, the German Steel Association is part of the „Future of Industry“ alliance, which develops industrial policy guidelines, recommendations for action and measures to strengthen Germany as an industrial location.
