Siemens has set itself the target of becoming the first big industrial company to reach a CO2-neutral operation by the year 2030. By 2020, the emissions of greenhouse gases from its own operations should be cut to half (base year 2014).
How will the targets be achieved?
Investments in the following three areas will contribute to reduce the CO2-emissions and until 2030, eliminate Siemens carbon dioxide emissions.
Siemens is also offering environmentally friendly technologies to their customers helping them reduce their emissions. During fiscal 2015 the environmental portfolio accounted for 43 percent of Siemens revenues and helped their customers to reduce their CO2-emissions with 487 million tons, which represents half of Germany’s emissions of carbon dioxide.
