Business to Society: In Oman, for Oman - Find our report and pocket map here.
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.
What matters to Oman?To answer that question, we looked beyond our own business and at the societal drivers for improving the country’s economy, health, and development. This let us identify which areas need improvement and are most important to Oman. It also allows us to determine what influence we could have in helping the country achieve its goals.
As Siemens, we have the mission of creating sustainable values for the societies we work in. Establishing the foundations of our business operations and goals, this mission is deeply rooted in our 150-year history in the region and our 10-year presence in Oman. We add value with our product and solution portfolio, our local business activities, our focus on R&D and our corporate concept of social responsibility. This is the “for Life” in “Ingenuity for Life”.
That’s also why we’ve put together our Business to Society report, a sustainability-focused method to make our contribution to Oman’s society measurable. Using this method, we identify the issues and fields of action that are important for our stakeholders and try to understand what development goals the country has adopted. Illustrating the gathered data, our contribution to Oman’s goals is shown in the Siemens Oman Value Map.
Read on to discover the various ways we can measure our contribution to Oman’s quality of life, from the jobs we create to how our technology enables most industrial plants in Oman, and how our presence and commitment continues to grow in alignment with Oman’s vision for the future.
Taking responsibility for society and future generations gives purpose to the existence of our company.Markus-Erich Strohmeier, CEO of Siemens Oman
