25 things you can do to save the planet

The fight against climate change is not only in the hands of governments or institutions. We can all do our bit, as our lifestyle and consumption habits have a direct impact on energy expenditure and CO2 emissions. 

There´s still time
Floods, storms, droughts, heatwaves… The potential impact of climate change is enormous and affects us all, and poses a considerable emerging threat for public health. There is overwhelming evidence and data to confirm that we human beings are bringing about the end of our own species. The repercussions are already being felt: an increased number of deaths due to heatwaves, ever more acute food shortages, the spread of climate-sensitive infectious diseases... This is only the start, although we can still reverse a part of this situation.
Markus Tacke: "All of us must act"

Yesterday I attended the inauguration of the COP25 and it was great to be there and see the start of a climate summit that will attract over 20,000 participants. I would like to congratulate the rapid response of the Spanish government in managing to successfully organize this event at such short notice.  At Siemens Gamesa we hope the summit will serve for governments to make more serious commitments to climate change and firm up projects that can stop the planet hurtling towards disaster. It is up to all of us to act to make transformative changes to help slow what is now a climate emergency.

Hope or disaster at stake in Madrid climate talks

The decisions taken at climate change talks that started on December 2 in Madrid will define whether we take a path towards hope or a path towards disaster, UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres said.

What is COP25?

A total of 196 countries and the European Union are soon to meet in Madrid over the course of two weeks on occasion of COP25, but what is it exactly? What decisions will be reached? How did it come about? Who is meeting and for what reason? In this article we aim to clear up all these doubts...
