Siemens’ story of actionWe Mean Business Coalition
A growing number of companies are going all in for halving emissions by 2030. The We Mean Business Coalition spoke to German technology company Siemens to find out how they are taking climate action.
Siemens is driven by the aspiration to address the world’s most profound challenges by leveraging the convergence of digitalization and sustainability. We help to form the backbone of society, providing technology with purpose to make manufacturing cleaner, infrastructure more energy efficient and clean energy more accessible.
In 2015, we were one of the first industrial companies to commit to becoming carbon neutral across all operations by 2030, and we have already more than halved our CO2 emissions since then. In 2020, we helped our customers cut 150 million metric tons of CO2 by deploying our technologies and solutions.
Through the Climate Pledge, we are working alongside corporate peers to help reach the goals of the Paris Agreement 10 years early. Our 50,000-strong global vehicle fleet will be 100% electrified by 2030. Our overall end goal is to achieve net-zero by 2030. Since establishing our own sustainability goals in 2015, we have seen a steady increase in customers – both private and public – setting their own targets and drawing on our expertise to reduce costs and emissions.
We continue to work hard at Siemens while supporting customers to achieve their goals, sharing what we’ve learned along the way. Right now we see no obstacles to move our sustainability targets forward. We know, the time is now. That’s why we’re all in for 2030.
