In contrast to my former blogs I did not want to miss the opportunity to post at least one positive example in terms of Sustainable Development.
Therefore I had a look on different WebPages and considered the Siemens’ page very interesting. On that page I found a really comprehensive set of measures concerning Industry, Healthcare, Mobility, Safety and Security as well as Power and Water.
Of course, it is still Siemens’ business to “produce” energy through the use of resources, but they are working on the development of efficiency, which also leads to a sparing way of using resources and they improve the commitment of alternative energies.
They offer and spread for e.g. a low-emission combined-cycle power plant, which uses the hot gases emitted by the gas turbine to generate power for the following steam turbine process. Compared to low efficiency combined power plants it produces 40,000 tons less carbon dioxide (this is equivalent to the emissions of almost 10,000 mid-size cars with an annual driving route of 20,000 kilometers)
This seems to be a good step in the right direction!
