As a leading technology company, Siemens has stood for pioneering spirit, outstanding achievements, innovation, quality, reliability, and internationality for over 165 years. With our technology leadership, we are in an excellent position to address the pressing challenges we are facing due to the megatrends demographic change, urbanization, climate change and globalization. In this light, we have driven and will continue to drive the ecological development of our world while improving people’s quality of life in many areas, including energy supply, transportation and healthcare. As a green infrastructure pioneer, we’ll further leverage this unique positioning with the aspiration to help shape our future for the better.
Our Siemens Sustainability Program specifically translates this aspiration into concrete measures for business success. These activities are centered on the three strategic fields of Business Opportunities, Walk the Talk and Stakeholder Engagement, which are designed to strengthen our leadership position.
We consider sustainability a company-wide task that requires clear responsibilities and close collaboration between various business units. The Sustainability Board, staffed by representatives of the four Sectors and all relevant specialist functions, sets the strategic focus and approves measures and initiatives, whereas the coordination and management of our sustainability program is carried out by the Corporate Sustainability Office. To gain an outside perspective on our sustainability challenges and performance, we have formed the Siemens Sustainability Advisory Board, which enriches and advances our Sustainability Program through expert advice and concrete activities.
The actual implementation of programs, targets and initiatives, however, is not the task of the Sustainability Board or the Sustainability Office; this is the responsibility of our operating units – the Sectors, Divisions, Business Units, Clusters and Regions. All units are supported in this task by specialist functions like Environmental Protection and Corporate Citizenship.
