The campus in Zug is Siemens’ largest Swiss location. It is a showcase for smart buildings that combine innovative building technology and renewable energy to achieve energy efficiency and decarbonization. It is also a reference project for digitalization in buildings and future-oriented working. The main office building and the factory, which both opened in 2019, saved 600 tons of CO2 in the first operating year, compared to the average heat consumption of recent years, which corresponds to a reduction of 60 percent.
Siemens supports customers worldwide to reduce their carbon footprint and contribute to fighting climate change with its environmental portfolio. The company’s overall environmental portfolio elements, including systems, products and services, installed in fiscal 2020 helped customers reduce CO2 emissions by 7 million metric tons.
In Switzerland, Siemens is the largest industrial employer, providing jobs to around 5,300 people. To further support decarbonization, all company locations will be equipped with Siemens charging infrastructure for electric vehicles. The existing charging infrastructure in Zug will soon be supplemented with around 40 additional charging stations. Employees can recharge their batteries free of charge at all Siemens locations in Switzerland. Worldwide, the company has committed to converting its entire fleet to fully-electric by 2030.
