Sustainability starts inside:
Across North America, transportation continues to be one of the largest contributors of greenhouse gasses. At Siemens Mobility, we know it’s not enough to just make sustainable public transportation options for people. We need to go further, by looking at the way we’re manufacturing, and how we continue to develop our products and technology. We have a good head start: our Sacramento rail manufacturing facility is more than 80% solar-powered and is building vehicles that continue to meet the highest environmental standards for the industry.
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 **
At the same time, climate change has stressed the need for far more sustainable mobility.
At Siemens Mobility, we define sustainable development as the means to achieve profitable and long-term growth while internally balancing profit, people and planet. Therefore, we are contributing to the 17 Sustainability Development Goals (SDGs) of the UN 2030 agenda for sustainable development adopted by the UN member states which came into effect in January 2016.
How we achieve more with less
Examples on how we contribute to the SDGs
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
