Statement on U.S. Rejoining Paris Climate Agreement from Barbara Humpton, CEO of Siemens USA
“Siemens is driven to demonstrate that reducing carbon emissions is both socially responsible and a good business choice. Our own carbon neutral journey has passed the halfway mark and, in 2019, Siemens’ technology helped U.S. customers decrease carbon emissions by more than 130 million metric tons.
By rejoining the Paris Climate Agreement, the United States will accelerate an ongoing energy transition as we invest in sustainable technologies ranging from electrified transportation to energy-efficient buildings and microgrids that will support continued progress and innovation. We look forward to continuing our work to decarbonize America’s vital industries, critical infrastructure and cities to not only protect our planet and produce cleaner air, but to create jobs, fuel the nation’s economic recovery and build a more resilient future.”
