Siemens technological innovations can help stem global warming while encouraging economic growth and prosperity. But for this to happen, energy everywhere in the world must be made as green and climate-friendly as possible. As a reliable technology partner, we see great challenges in the restructuring of our energy systems:
Siemens environmental portfolio is audited by PriceWaterhouse Coopers. Estimated savings from this portfolio by our customers is 300million tonnes of CO2.
Climate Change and global warming are real challenges for Siemens. As a technology supplier we have the opportunity to positively impact emissions throughout the supply chain.
Within our own operations we have programmes targeting to reduce emissions in all green house gases. Through investment in technology in our offices and factories, engagement of employees and changing work patterns, we are reducing the impact individuals and businesses have on the climate.
We are also conscious that the emissions of our customers and our supply chain are many times larger than our internal emissions. We therefore have programmes active within our partners to reduce third party green house gasses. Product development is also aimed at reducing the embedded carbon in our products.

Siemens requires the introduction of EHS management systems at the location, Division and regional company levels. They are based on ISO 14001 (international standard for implementing environmental management systems) and OHSAS 18001 (certification basis for safety). Details are governed by the corporate environmental protection and safety offices in special guides. The health management guide is currently being drafted.
To monitor compliance with the EHS principles and implementation of the management systems, we have defined an audit concept. It has already been implemented in environmental protection and safety; health management will be added in the future. The audit concept states that an organizational unit is audited by the next-higher EHS office in the corporate hierarchy. At Siemens the managing boards of the regional companies must also ensure that local laws are observed. For this reason the EHS officers of the regional organizations also conduct legal compliance audits in addition to the examinations described above. The company's central EHS office monitors all these audits using systematically selected random samples to ensure consistent quality.
Additionally, internal and external environmental and safety audits are performed as needed at the location level in accordance with ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001.
