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.
Increasing competitiveness with smart and sustainable solutions
Digitalization and sustainability are increasingly influencing corporate agendas. With our digital innovations, we help companies increase their competitiveness, spur their innovation lifecycle, automate processes and increase their energy efficiency. We help drive energy transition and decarbonization across key sectors, such as industry, transport and buildings. By doing so, Siemens helps customers and cities achieve their sustainability goals and lay the foundation for a systematic transformation.
Responsible Product Design: The art of creating sustainable products
Energy efficient, environmentally friendly and economical. Today, we are just as innovative in our compliance and improvement of environmental standards as we are in the development of our products.
