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
Electrifying the world’s infrastructure is the critical next step to de-carbonization. We must consider tactics to speed progress toward this goal
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.
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.
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.
Siemens is going carbon neutral
Siemens is one of the first major industrial companies aiming to achieve a worldwide net-zero carbon footprint by 2030. To reach this goal, we will invest some 100 million Euros in energy-efficiency projects at our production facilities and buildings until 2020.

Siemens leads the way. We are already taking steps towards achieving our goal to be a carbon neutral business by 2030. We focus on four levers – energy-efficiency, decentralized energy systems, intelligent e-mobility solutions, and green electricity purchasing.
