Sustainability & Citizenship

At Siemens, we have a clear commitment to think and act in the interest of future generations, balancing people, planet and profit.

Supporting the Pacific region

We believe firms must create sustainable value for society over the long term. Our sustainability initiatives are an essential aspect of successfully implementing the Siemens Strategy Program Vision 2020.

Siemens has been present in the Pacific region since 1872, and while we are a worldwide organisation, sustainability and citizenship values demonstrated at the global level also remain strong at the local level.

The leaders of the world’s industrialised nations have pledged to decarbonise the global economy by the end of this century. All corporations have a vital contribution to make, and our own strength is our innovative technology, which improves efficiency, helps conserve scarce resources and generates clean power.

Starting at home, we have set ourselves the ambitious goal to cut our own carbon dioxide emissions in half by as early as 2020 and become the world’s first major industrial company to achieve a net-zero carbon footprint by 2030.

We view sustainable development as the means to achieve profitable and long-term growth. In doing so, we (externally) align ourselves with the goals of the UN’s 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development while (internally) striving to balance people, environment and profit.
