Siemens slashes carbon emissions by 54% since 2014

Siemens has reduced the carbon footprint of its value chain by 54% since 2014, surpassing its intermediate target for carbon reduction.

The company had set a goal of halving its global carbon emissions by 2020.

Including Siemens Energy, it has reduced carbon emissions by around 1.2 million tons of carbon dioxide compared to levels in 2014.

The company has surpassed its target by expanding its energy efficiency programme, using distributed energy systems, buying green power and reducing emissions in its vehicle fleet.

Siemens has also previously set a long term target of achieving climate neutrality in its business operations by 2030.

Judith Wiese, Chief Human Resources Officer of Siemens AG, where she is also a Managing Board member and responsible, among other things, for sustainability said: “Our recently achieved successes prove that sustainability and profitable business go hand in hand. In this way, we’re creating long-term value – for our customers, our employees and society as a whole.

“Siemens’ innovative and digital solutions enable us and our customers to boost energy efficiency, automate processes and drive decarbonisation. Together with our partners, we’re working hard to realise further potential to make the systems used for industry and infrastructure even more sustainable and more environmentally-friendly.”
