Our sustainability approach

Sustainability is at the heart of our business activities. It determines our responsible business practices, our risk management approach and our technological contribution to climate protection, resource conservation and product safety in the interest of future generations.

 

With a strong focus on industry, infrastructure and transport, we help create agile factories, intelligent and efficient buildings, and more sustainable transport systems. This is how Siemens supports its customers to increase their competitiveness and - at the same time - sets the course for a successful energy transition in the areas of industry, transportation and buildings.

 

Our sustainable business practices are based on integrity, fairness, transparency and responsibility. With numerous programs, we promote the safety, training and well-being of our employees and are committed to equal rights and the further development of society.

Materiality approach

Material topics

How do we create profitable and long-term growth while making a contribution to society?
Our twelve defined principles guide and help us live up to this claim.

We take into consideration our contribution towards the UN Agenda 2030, this has influenced the assessment and derivation of the most important material topics. Regular dialogues with external and internal stakeholders play a key role in the materiality process.

®Business to Society

Siemens' contribution to society

How do we measure our contribution?

As part of the UN Agenda 2030, the long-term priorities are clear: end poverty, protect the planet and ensure prosperity. Siemens contributes to the achievement of these priorities by providing access to clean and affordable energy solutions, creating smart and livable cities, providing access to innovative healthcare systems and much more. 

 

Even before the UN Agenda with its 17 SDGs, Siemens developed a proprietary methodology to measure the contribution to society – the ®Business to Society methodology, which allows us to quantitatively measure the social contribution of our activities in various dimensions. These dimensions include strengthening the economy, developing jobs and skills, driving innovation, protecting the environment, improving the quality of life and shaping social change. The ®Business to Society methodology also enables us to evaluate our contribution to achieving the UN's Sustainable Development Goals. Siemens has meanwhile published Business to Society reports in over 35 countries.
