Measurements used in corporate reports typically include only the dollars and cents of investments being made. In this document, we've gone far beyond that to capture the true value we create - the actual impact we're having.
"Business to Society" is our shorthand way of referring to the multidimensional impact Siemens has in this country - to make Canadian society better in lasting, quantifiable ways. It starts with the investment of money and building facilities and offices.
Then we measure the economic growth we generate, the jobs we create, the skills we develop, the education we foster, the innovation we spark, the environmental protection we achieve, the quality of life we improve, and the societal transformation we drive.
We then viewed all our business activities through that prism, and assessed the impacts of our actions now and in the future. As part of this, we also addressed where we can improve and where we can place greater emphasis to have an even larger positive influence.
Across all aspects of Canadian society – from the economy to the environment to supporting people in need – Siemens Canada is committed to helping the country become stronger and continuously improve.Faisal Kazi, President and CEO, Siemens Canada Limited
