Electrifying the world’s infrastructure is the critical next step to de-carbonization. We must consider tactics to speed progress toward this goal
70% of all emissions will come from cities. If we want to win the battle against climate change, we need to win the battle in the cities first.Dr. Roland Busch, Member of the Managing Board of Siemens AG
It’s our role to be a leader in this battle against climate change – to show that it works, that there is a positive business case, that there are great opportunities for doing this. Our carbon neutral program is one good example.Jenny Bofinger-Schuster, Senior Vice President Sustainability & Cities, Siemens AG
of our German sites use 100% green energy
of CO2 emissions reduced since the launch of Siemens' CO2 neutral program
Euros expected annual savings in operating costs starting 2020 due to investments in energy-efficiency projects
Taking Germany as an example of a country with an ambitious decarbonization plan, we examined what measures would be needed to achieve at least an 80 percent reduction in greenhouse gas emissions.
Renewable energy systems and components qualify for our Environmental Portfolio as well as products and systems, that are far more energy-efficient in the use phase at our customers than comparable solutions, i.e. yield an increase in energy efficiency of at least 20% or a greenhouse gas reduction of at least 100,000 metric tons of CO2 equivalents in the reporting year.
