There is no place where we spend more time than indoors. Far more than just four walls, buildings are where we learn the most valuable lessons in life, where we encounter the people who inspire us, where our best ideas are born. Buildings are where we spend time with loved ones. They are our homes, and there is no other place in the world that feels so special to us.
We all begin life in a perfect place: our mother’s tummy, where it's never too cold or too warm, too loud or too quiet. A perfect place! Why shouldn’t all our lives be lived in perfect places that are perfectly designed for their purpose. A place to learn, to grow, to succeed.
It takes ingenuity to create perfect places – where people can achieve their goals, feel safe and secure, and live the life they want.

Higher grades thanks to more comfortable temperatures - that's Ingenuity for life.Energy costs ran high across the schools and preschools of Sosnowiec, due to classroom temperatures that were too high and hard to control. This also had a negative impact on students’ performance. For the authorities of Sosnowiec, it was clear that a complete refurbishment of the schools' system was essential: 87 schools had to be technically modernized in only 10 months.
Small changes, big results
We create results: Cost savings of 31 percent. Lighting power usage cut by 21 percent. CO2 cut by 5,220 metric tons every year. Great results. But perhaps the best results were that with the help of Siemens, the joy of learning came back. Students are now more comfortable, more focused; their school performance is better, and grades are higher.
The EU has recognized this tremendous environmental and social impact, honoring Siemens and the city of Sosnowiec for outstanding efforts and achievements in the field of energy services in Europe.
The story of Sosnowiec shows how important the perfect place is for our personal development. But energy efficiency and performance optimization for buildings are not only local challenges. If we want to succeed against climate change, sustainable buildings are a major part of the global response.
