Helping to shape and preserve a livable world for future generations - that's what #GENERATIONTK stands for. The commitment of colleagues in the various areas of thyssenkrupp is diverse, both professionally and personally. We asked three of them what they do towards this, what they love about their job, and what #GENERATIONTK means to them.

I am proud to be able to devote my time to such crucial developments in society and business.

Carina Lehming
Sustainability Manager at thyssenrupp Materials Services GmbH, Essen, Germany.

How does sustainability determine your (daily) life?

For some years now, I have been making more and more environmentally friendly decisions in my everyday life. This concerns, for example, my mobility, nutrition or consumer behavior, e.g. traveling through Europe by train. In addition, I am driven by a great need for justice and openness towards my fellow human beings.

Of course, sustainability also determines my day-to-day work in the role of Sustainability Manager at Materials Services. I develop the sustainability strategy in the segment, support implementation in the units on both a large and small scale, which often also means driving cultural change.

What do you enjoy most about your job?

What I enjoy most about my job is working on a topic that is so important socially and economically, and at the same time so challenging. The field is very varied and constantly changing. I am proud to be able to devote my time to such crucial developments in society and business. I also work with numerous dedicated colleagues from across the segment who are committed to shaping our business responsibly in line with ESG criteria and thinking outside the box.

Together we look ahead and work to continue to be fit for the future - with commitment, heart and soul, and innovative ideas - for our plant and ultimately for thyssenkrupp.

Christina Schmidt
HR Business Partner at thyssenkrupp Presta Mülheim, Mülheim an der Ruhr, Germany

How does sustainability determine your (daily) life?

Very much so. I try to be sustainable in my consumption by using less plastic, using things more than once. I walk or bike instead of driving, maintain a natural garden, and use electronic devices as energy-efficiently as possible - while electricity is generated by our photovoltaic system. I also try to pass this approach on to my children.

What do you enjoy most about your job?

The diverse tasks that await me every day. No two days are the same. And meeting lots of different people.

What does thyssenkrupp & the #GENERATIONTK mean to you?

I've been at thyssenkrupp for 15 years and can now say that I've grown particularly fond of our plant and the people who work there. Together we look to the future and work to be fit for the future - with commitment, passion and innovative ideas - for our plant and ultimately for thyssenkrupp. That's what I understand by #GENERATIONTK in the broadest sense.
