Sustainable products and solutions create major business opportunities for Siemens. In fiscal 2011, the company generated revenue of €30 billion with its Environmental Portfolio – an amount equal to around 40 percent of the company's total sales and a nine-percent increase over fiscal 2010. Siemens is now one of the world's largest suppliers of ecofriendly technologies. The company intends to increase revenue from the products and solutions in its Environmental Portfolio to 40 billion, for example, by driving innovative products and achieving above-average growth in areas such as energy-efficient building technologies and advanced mobility concepts.
Siemens has firmly anchored its sustainability strategy along its entire value chain. The Sustainability Report 2011 illustrates this achievement with the help of three case studies showcasing how the company is fostering sustainability on the part of its suppliers and business partners, in its own operations and on the customer side. In the renowned Dow Jones Sustainability Index, Siemens took first place in the Diversified Industrials category. The company also won the German Sustainability Award 2011 for its sustainability strategy and has been named a Selected Location 2012 in this year's Germany – Land of Ideas competition for its Environmental Portfolio.
