NZCB Commitment & The Climate Pledge: Accelerating Decarbonisation

In 2022, Siemens announced new, more ambitious targets for our own decarbonization, including investing €650 million in those decarbonization efforts between now and 2030,” said Matt Helgeson, Head of Sustainability, Siemens USA. “With regard to building emissions, we want to own or lease only buildings with no net CO2 emissions by the year 2030. We intend to achieve this goal by means of various measures such as building new CO2-neutral buildings, modernizing existing buildings, and leasing office space with the lowest possible emissions. We have issued a guideline defining the criteria for the CO2-neutral operation of new buildings and setting maximum permissible emissions in the supply chain and in construction activities. Our New Normal Working Model is enabling us to reduce emissions from the use of our buildings.

Our active involvement in the WorldGBC’s Net Zero Carbon Buildings Commitment, which contributes to further targets outlined through our participation in other initiatives such as The Climate Pledge and SBTi – is key to executing our global sustainability strategy, and ensures strong collaboration across a broad ecosystem of like-minded companies as we all seek a cleaner, healthier environment for future generations.
