At Siemens, says CEO Joe Kaeser, the global industrial manufacturing company that makes everything from wind and gas turbines and automation systems to high-speed trains and M.R.I. machines, it's understood that taking action is not just prudent - it's profitable.
"That's why, today, we are committing to cut our global carbon footprint in half by 2020 and to make our global operations carbon neutral by 2030. We will accomplish this by eliminating a vast majority of our carbon emissions, while also supporting projects that reduce greenhouse gas emissions outside of Siemens, known as carbon offsets. Our net CO2 emissions will be zero."
