Our $100 million commitment to decarbonizing America's businesses 

As the backbone of our economy, Small-Medium Sized Companies have the power to solve the global climate crisis. To assist on their sustainability journey, Siemens Financial Services will provide $100 million in financing to support the decarbonization of SMEs in the United States.

We Are Committed to Achieving a Net Zero-Carbon Footprint

As a global technology powerhouse, Siemens is well positioned to drive solutions on electrification, automation and digitalisation to help accelerate the clean energy transition. I’m delighted that they are addressing their own operations too – through renewable power, smarter energy use and electric transport.

Scaling Sustainable Solutions in the Decade of Action

The Decade of Action calls for accelerating sustainable solutions. But today, while progress is being made in many places, overall action to meet Sustainable Development Goals is not advancing at the speed of scale required. What if all schools, hospitals, and commercial buildings in the US transitioned to renewable energy? Learn more about the impact on emissions and the economy in these three video explainers:

An Action Plan for a Decarbonized Future

Buildings account for nearly 40 percent of energy-related CO2 emissions annually.  That’s a major climate impact that can be controlled right now.  Utilizing Siemens technologies, buildings can be smart, safe, and carbon neutral and capable of capitalizing on data to meet sustainability and efficiency targets.

 

The ability of comprehensive energy-management systems to set key performance metrics for resilience, efficiency, and new technologies can accelerate the pace of investment in clean-energy projects.

 

Buildings play a key role in how sustainably and competitively organizations fulfill their mission: they impact financial and reputational strength, service delivery capability, as well as employee well-being and productivity. Learn more about the services and solutions that can provide that competitive edge.

Environmental Innovation at Work

Onsite power systems, like microgrids, are ready and able to be the backbone for a new, decentralized model of power delivery.  These systems will prepare grid networks for unpredictable spikes in demand.  Siemens envisions large consumers of power using these onsite power systems to supplement the connection to the utility grid.  They’ll be able to insulate their services from outages and serve as a local grid resource as needed.

America’s air pollution levels have dramatically improved over the past four decades, but millions of Americans still breathe unhealthy air due to traffic-related pollution and/or poor indoor air quality management.

 

That's why Siemens is a founding member of the Alliance for Clean Air, an initiative led by the World Economic Forum and Clean Air Fund. Learn about the technologies, services, and solutions available to help businesses and cities improve air quality.

Environmental Innovation at Work

The manufacturing industry is one of the largest contributors to greenhouse gas emissions worldwide – accounting for just over 22% of emissions in the United States. By deploying technologies and solutions to improve energy efficiency, integrating renewable energy and decarbonizing product carbon footprints the manufacturing industry can minimize emissions while increasing productivity and gaining a competitive edge.
