With our commitment to turn our global operations carbon neutral by 2030, Siemens set a clear signal even before the adoption of the Paris Agreement. By setting this goal, we express our firm belief that companies play a pioneering role in the fight against climate change. Our goal is clear: All Siemens production facilities and buildings worldwide are to achieve a net zero-carbon footprint by 2030. This program not only benefits humanity and the environment, but also comes with sustainable economic advantages for our company.
What Siemens have achieved so far:
- Since program launch in September 2015, we managed to reduce our CO2 emission by 33%.
- Our investments in energy efficiency projects led to 15% reduced energy costs.
In Germany, 80% of the electricity consumption of our sites is covered by renewables
