As Siemens, we always aim to create sustainable values for the societies we operate in. Laying the foundations of our business operations and goals, this mission is deeply rooted in our 160-year history in Turkey. 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”.
Siemens developed a sustainability-focused method to make its contribution to society measurable. The Business to Society method is based upon the Measuring Impact Framework developed by the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD). Using this method, we identify the aspects which are crucial to the sustainable development of Turkey. We try to understand, what general development goals the country has adopted, for example in terms of strengthening the economy, developing qualified workforce, driving innovation, sustaining the environment, improving quality of life and social change. The results of this analysis help us to identify the issues and action fields that are of importance to our stakeholders. Additional expert support was provided by auditing and consultancy company PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC). Illustrating the gathered data, our contribution to Turkey’s goals is shown in the Siemens Turkey Value Map.
Full awareness of our responsibility towards the society and the future generations… That is what "Business to Society" means to me!Joe Kaeser, CEO, Siemens AG
