The need for sustainable mobility solutionsDriven by the megatrends of urbanization, digitization, globalization, and demographic change, the demand for mobility will continue to increase rapidly. At the same time, there is an intensifying need to mitigate climate change, as well as the depletion of natural resources, to shape a sustainable and livable future. It is one of our central motivations at Siemens Mobility to act decisively and introduce sustainability standards that enable decarbonization and dematerialization of the entire mobility value chain.
Global megatrends influence mobility demand
3x more passenger movement predicted globally by 2050 *,**
By 2050, 70% of the world’s population will live in cities
More than 30% of global energy demand from transportation sector **
We contribute to the sustainable development of societies
At Siemens Mobility, we define sustainable development as the means to achieve profitable and long-term growth while internally balancing profit, people, and the planet. Therefore, we are contributing to the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the UN 2030 agenda for sustainable development in four important ways:
- through our products and solutions
- through the responsible management of our own operations
- through our expertise and thought leadership
- through our Corporate Citizenship activities and community engagement
How we achieve more with less
Enabling positive impacts through our portfolio
As a company, we support our customers in generalizing carbon-neutral passenger and freight transport, from door to door, in cities, and in-between: With rolling stock, rail infrastructure, intermodal solutions, rail services, and turnkey solutions. We play our part by utilizing energy-efficient products and accelerating alternative propulsion systems that use battery or hydrogen technology. Our customers also enjoy the benefits of increased asset value through our lifecycle management strategy; this in turn reduces the ecological footprint of their operations.

In order to achieve a turn in transportation and make a significant contribution to climate protection, a combination of behavioral changes is needed - and we can all contribute. But it also needs attractive alternatives, such as efficient public transport or good cycling routes, and it needs new and smart technologies to support it all.”Dr. Maike Schaefer, Mayor of Bremen
