Sustainability follows our company values

Responsible, excellent and innovative. They lay the foundation for our responsible business practices and ambition to develop technologies with purpose.

Our four strong commitments towards decarbonization

Siemens is amongst the very few companies worldwide to join four ambitious sustainability commitments in a row: The Science Based Targets initiative as well as the EV100, EP100 and RE100 initiatives. This underlines our ongoing pledge to reduce our carbon emissions along the entire value chain, thus strengthening our decarbonization efforts whilst helping our customers accelerate their individual carbon neutral journey.

Answers to lay the foundation for societies to thrive and for people to be empowered.

What happens when the world changes?

We transform ourselves to help the world adapt to these changes. With both our technology and our people, our biggest strengths and assets, we bring solutions to life that transform the way we use resources, the way we go to work, the way we get connected, the way we shape business models to foster decarbonization and sustainable development.
