In Korea, for Korea

Siemens has been doing business in Korea since 1950’s as participated in the reconstruction and infrastructure projects after the Korean War. Over the past decades, Siemens never settled in simply satisfying present-day needs, always seeking to anticipate society's demands. At Siemens, sustainability means long-term economic success coupled with environmental awareness and the social responsibility that goes with being a good corporate citizen. In this pursuit satisfying society's needs, we shaped our portfolio to quickly answer all future changes.

 

As a global citizen, Siemens has been targeting the sustainable goal on education, health, poverty, environment and so much more. Siemens contributes to the achievement of these goals by providing access to clean and affordable energy solutions, by creating smart and livable cities, by providing access to innovative healthcare systems and much more.

 

So, we have contributed Korea's sustainable growth providing various business cooperation efforts, active investments, and developments based on high technology and global experience as a partner of Korea.

Measurable factors that contribute to economic success and social stability

To determine what contribution we make to society, we use our customized Business to Society (B2S) methodology. The Business to Society method is based upon the Measuring Impact Framework developed by the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD). With this “Siemens – Business to Society” methodology we identify and measure our contribution to the things that really matter to a country, like sustaining economic growth, developing local skills and fostering innovation, sustaining the environment, strengthening the urban infrastructure, improving quality of life and shaping societal transformation. The results of this analysis help us to identify the issues and action fields that are of importance to our society. Illustrating the gathered data, our contribution to Korea's sustainable growth is shown in the Siemens Korea Value Map.
