Siemens is a global conglomerate that has grown over 170 years into the largest manufacturing company in Europe. Consumers know it best for its range of high-end home appliances and electronics, but Siemens also works in the lighting, medical, transport, energy and building sectors, with a focus on electrification, automation and digitalization. The brand promises “Ingenuity for Life”, and is driven by its Vision 2020 to make “things that really matter”, pursue sustainable growth, and give all staff responsibility for the company’s success. A recent campaign in India reflected this vision, promoting the power of innovation to fulfil society’s aspirations. Siemens has pledged to contribute to the UN agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development; through Safe Water Enterprises, co-founded by Siemens Stiftung, it supplies around 20,000 liters of drinking water in East Africa. Siemens employs around 377,000 people worldwide.
