A trusted partner
Siemens has been a strategic partner to the Middle East for more than 150 years, and actively engaged in Kuwait for over six decades. We align our commitments and business strategies with the Kuwait Vision 2035 and the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Siemens is a trusted infrastructure and digitalization partner in Kuwait. We are active in core digital technologies such as additive manufacturing, artiﬁcial intelligence, augmented reality, machine learning, blockchain, and IoT-based applications. In addition, we have been a key partner to the Ministry of Electricity and Water, working hand-in-hand to deliver reliable power for the country.
We make real what matters
We look beyond the bottom line and consider how our business serves society as a whole. We believe the purpose of our company is to contribute to the well-being of society and to impact positively on people’s lives.
The UN Sustainable Development Goals
In 2015, the United Nations announced a call to action to end poverty, tackle climate change and ensure peace and prosperity by 2030. To focus global efforts around a common set of goals, the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) were adopted. These goals remind us at Siemens of our role in working with society, for society.
By aligning our corporate sustainability goals with the SDGs, we are able to contribute to the global endeavor of creating a more sustainable future.
The Kuwait National Development Plan 2035The Kuwait National Development Plan 2035 (KNDP 2035) stems from his Highness the Emir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah’s conceptualized vision of a New Kuwait by 2035. Work is currently under way to mobilize all efforts to achieve the objectives of the development plan across seven pillars, targeting the transformation of Kuwait into a leading regional ﬁnancial, commercial and cultural hub by 2035.
Making real what matters to future generations is what we strive for. We call this approach business to society.Herbert Klausner, CEO of Siemens Kuwait
Our impact in KuwaitSupporting Kuwait’s journey towards sustainability, Siemens’ technology generates 100% of the country’s wind energy, distributes 70% of its electricity and is operational in 85% of wastewater treatment facilities. As Kuwait continues to invest in renewable energy programs, we will continue to contribute technology and knowhow to ensure its goals are met. Siemens powers the cities we live in, makes industries and buildings more efficient, and manages the transport and logistics that get us from place to place, on time. We are committed to sustainable innovation in everything we do, and our advanced technology and infrastructure solutions contribute to Kuwait’s dynamic journey.
Our Business To Society Approach
Business to Society is about looking past simple profit and loss. It is a unique approach to measuring the value we create for our stakeholders. Instead of looking to traditional financial reporting, we take the approach of analyzing the business impacts of Siemens Kuwait on society for current and future generations. Our Business to Society report captures both how we create value, and how much of it we create for Kuwaiti society.
Business to Society refers to how we engage our business with the society it impacts. To address our Business to Society relationships, we start with our engagement with the economy and our investments. Then we review how we develop local jobs and skills, the value-adding innovations we help develop, the environment we aim to sustain, the quality of life we improve, and finally the social transformations we help manifest.
