Climate change is real. We therefore live up to our responsibility – with intelligent and sustainable solutions.

In September 2015, Siemens has been the first global industrial company to commit towards carbon neutrality by 2030. Our Environmental Portfolio supports our customers to increase their competitiveness and to combat climate change.


Joe Kaeser, CEO of Siemens AG

To Beat Climate Change, Digitalize the Electrical World

Improving the competitive position of our customers

Investments into low-carbon technologies are paying off: they increase our customers’ and our own competitiveness and they help preserve the environment.

The advancement of energy-efficient, resource-saving technologies has been the focus of Siemens for many years now. Both the environment and people’s quality of life benefit from this commitment. As do our customers because the associated energy savings can help them slash production costs over time and strengthen their competitiveness.

Lay the right foundations for sustainable cities now

70% of all emissions will come from cities. If we want to win the battle against climate change, we need to win the battle in the cities first.

Dr. Roland Busch, Member of the Managing Board of Siemens AG

It’s our role to be a leader in this battle against climate change – to show that it works, that there is a positive business case, that there are great opportunities for doing this. Our carbon neutral program is one good example.

Jenny Bofinger-Schuster, Senior Vice President Sustainability & Cities, Siemens AG
