Siemens Gamesa has joined a consortium of 270 leading companies, Members of the European Parliament (MEP), business leaders, trade unions and campaign groups calling for a green recovery once the lockdown is lifted.

The so-called ‘Green Alliance’ backs economic stimulus measures focused on achieving carbon-neutrality in the EU, in turn, kick-starting economic growth and job creation.

In a joint statement, the alliance said: “We call on a global alliance of cross-party political decision-makers, business and financial leaders, trade unions, NGOs, think-tankers, stakeholders to support and implement the establishment of Green Recovery Investment Packages acting as accelerators of the transition towards climate-neutrality and healthy ecosystems.

“We, therefore, commit to working together, sharing knowledge, exchanging expertise and creating synergies to deliver the investment decisions we need.”

In early April Siemens Gamesa also joined the International Renewable Energy Agency’s (IRENA) Coalition for Action alongside more than 100 leading renewable energy players calling for the sector to be at the core in leading a sustainable recovery from the coronavirus crisis.
