Highlights

Learn how Siemens is addressing the world's most profound challenges by leveraging the convergence of digitalization and sustainability.

Overview

With its commitment to turn its operations carbon neutral by 2030, Siemens has set a clear signal that companies must take leadership in driving decarbonization. The goal is clear: all Siemens production facilities and buildings worldwide are to achieve a net zero-carbon footprint by 2030. This not only benefits humanity and the environment, but also comes with sustainable economic advantages for the company. Siemens has already reduced its CO2 footprint by over 50%.

Siemens’ commitment to sustainability is driven through its new framework called DEGREE, which stands for Decarbonization, Ethics, Governance, Resource efficiency, Equity and Employability. This new framework will apply to all activities across the company’s businesses worldwide. Sustainability is embedded in Siemens’ strategy, its technology, its portfolio and its operations.

Going forward, the company will continue to optimize and decarbonize its own operations. By signing the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi), Siemens has extended its commitment to the entire value chain. The company believes it can create the greatest impact by supporting customers in their transition, by helping them to shift their focus to sustainable solutions, turning possible risks into competitive advantage through Siemens' technology and innovation.

You’ll learn how Siemens is addressing the world's most profound challenges by leveraging the convergence of digitalization and sustainability. Siemens helps to form the backbone of society, by providing technology with purpose to make manufacturing cleaner, infrastructure more energy efficient, provide access to clean energy, transit smarter and healthier for the planet. In this session, you'll hear real case studies of what Siemens is doing to reduce its carbon footprint and how Siemens is helping large industrial customers meet their energy and sustainability goals, all the while reducing their operating costs.
