From inventiveness to Ingenuity for lifeFor almost 170 years we have been finding ways to improve life in many areas. With our passion for technology, we set standards and create sustainable value – for our customers, for society and for each individual. Our company founder Werner von Siemens would have called this inventiveness. Today we call it Ingenuity for life.
Ingenuity for life ensures the foundation for a strong economy, by mastering the challenges of today’s energy landscape. For example intelligent technologies ensure a stable power supply by managing fluctuations from wind and solar energy sources.
Ingenuity for life brings industry into the future. Mass production thus becomes so flexible that it can even fulfil individual requirements. For example, through the digitalization of the whole production process.
Ingenuity for life makes our cities more liveable and appealing, by making them more efficient and environmentally friendly, and improving punctuality. For example, intelligent networking and control of traffic signals give priority to buses and emergency vehicles.
Together with our customers we tackle the many challenges that face us. Through our expertise in the areas of electrification, automation and digitalization, we improve the lives of people today and create lasting value for future generations.
This is what drives us and this is what we promise. This is Ingenuity for life.
If you want to set the course, you can’t be guided by what others have done. You’ve got to anticipate changes and seize the opportunities they provide.Joe Kaeser, President and CEO of Siemens AG
We gear our company to the future by providing answers to the following questions:
- What do we stand for?
- What sets us apart?
- How will we achieve long term success?
That’s what we’ve done in Vision 2020, by choosing three focus topics: our path, our culture and our strategy.
