We look beyond the bottom line and consider how our business serves society as a whole. We believe the purpose of our company is to contribute to the well-being of society and to impact positively on people’s lives.
Areas of operation
What matters to the UAE?
The UAE is striving to provide excellent education and healthcare; a competitive and knowledge-driven economy; a high quality of life; and an innovative, nurturing, and sustainable environment. In order to help the country achieve these goals – and to understand our own influence as a company – we identified which areas need improvement and are most important to the UAE.
Business to Society
What does a country need to meet its goals?
At Siemens, our mission is to make real what matters – but who decides what matters? At Siemens, we think it is the societies in which we function that determine “what matters” – each with unique needs and development goals.
We believe that companies should look beyond commercial interests, to identify how we can be integral parts of society and in the improvement of people’s lives. To accomplish this, we must first understand what is truly important to a nation’s government and its people.
This is why we appraised our value to the UAE from an outside-in perspective, calling upon renowned global consultants to carry out objective evaluations. We also dug for raw data and analyzed recent documents and government initiatives, including UAE Vision 2021, the Abu Dhabi Economic Vision 2030, the Dubai Plan 2021, the UAE’s National Innovation Strategy, and the Dubai Industrial Strategy 2030.
Being a better partner for the UAE means considering its specific concerns and stances on key issues. As the nation approaches its 50th anniversary, we are committed to helping it prosper.
Making real what matters to future generations is what we strive for
