With decades of actions, our environmental commitments are as firm as ever. They stand for continued efforts in the area of decarbonization, conservation of resources, circular economy and responsible product design.

How Data Can Help Optimize a Product’s Ecological Footprint

Climate change is one of the greatest global challenges we are facing today. Many of us are already calculating and reducing our own footprints.
Imagine industrial companies could measure the "CO2 backpack" of a product across the entire value chain. Our Siemens Industry experts found a solution to do exactly this.

Environmental protection – 5 decades of action

Our continued efforts in the area of environmental protection relate to the entire value chain. They range from decarbonization initiatives throughout the entire value chain through to innovative business models around circular economy as well as targeted biodiversity measures and resource conservation initiatives. With our energy efficient and digital solutions, we help customers and cities reach their decarbonization and sustainability goals. One way we specifically support the development of eco-efficient solutions in our business is through Eco-Efficiency @ Siemens, our environmental program.

Carbon Neutral operations by 2030

In September 2015, Siemens has been the first global industrial company to commit towards carbon neutrality by 2030. By setting this goal, we wanted to express our firm belief that take leadership actions in the fight against climate change. Meantime, we have more than halved our CO2 footprint with regards to our own operations.
