"For us, as the largest supplier of environmental technologies, sustainability does not only mean new business opportunities; it also obligates us, as a company, to be a pioneer. That's why we're proud to have been recognized by the DJSI. But we also consider this distinction an incentive not to relax our efforts," said Barbara Kux, the member of Siemens' Managing Board responsible for Supply Chain Management and Sustainability. In addition to the economic and social dimension, Siemens is focusing, in particular, on expanding its Environmental Portfolio, reducing emissions and using ever-scarcer natural resources sparingly and responsibly.
Siemens has set itself the goal of generating revenue of €25 billion in fiscal 2011 through its Environmental Portfolio. The company will exceed this goal a year earlier than planned.
