Launching #CleanFutureNow to create a world of difference together  

2 March 2020

Our world stands at a crossroads. The choices being made right now by politicians, corporations and citizens around the world will define the future of our planet. The scale of the climate crisis is widely understood, and, without despair or delay, we must work to prevent irreversible climate change. Day after day, growing numbers of governments and businesses set themselves ever stricter targets to reduce carbon emissions. Citizens of every country around the world are making more conscious choices about their own personal impact on the planet.

At Siemens Gamesa, we have been working to counteract climate change for many years and earlier this year we surpassed 100 GW of installed wind energy capacity. This is an important milestone for us which has helped to keep communities going, created thousands of green jobs, and helped our customers reduce CO2 emissions by more than 260 million tons a year.

 

However, it is only just the beginning. As a company, and an industry, we need to leapfrog beyond the linear progress that has been made to date and deliver 100 GW every single year. If we are to tackle the climate crisis effectively, we need to deliver truly exponential growth in renewable energy deployment.

 

In this new decade, we need to translate social and political ambition into tangible action and change. As a global leader in renewable energy, we are committed to delivering a clean future and worldwide sustainable development. We have a responsibility to lead and enable change for the better. This is why over the coming months we will identify and celebrate the people, technology and thinking needed to deliver a cleaner, greener and more sustainable future as part of our #cleanfuturenow initiative.

Exponential thinking to tackle the climate crisis  

We are also motivated by the challenges of developing new thinking and new ideas. We want to promote and encourage the creative and innovative approaches needed to deliver the exponential growth in renewable deployment. This includes everything from policy frameworks and incentives, investment models, corporate stewardship, social and community activism and more.

 

By highlighting the role of people, technology and thinking, we want to engage all those who are committed to building a cleaner, greener and more sustainable future. Get involved with #cleanfuturenow by sharing your views, insights and opinions. Together, we can create a world of difference.

People power change  
If you look back at history, it is people and events that drive change. This is even more true with today’s climate response. We want to acknowledge the people and the teams at the forefront of delivering the renewable revolution. By giving a human face to the climate response, we can encourage the younger generation to think about STEM careers and ways in which to channel their activism and enthusiasm in bringing about the change we need to see.
Technology and innovation matters  

Alongside people, technology and innovation will continue to play an instrumental role in addressing the climate crisis. Whether that is through new innovations in wind, solar, hydro, energy storage or sector coupling, we recognize that new technologies will play a key role in decarbonizing the global economy.

By highlighting the role of people, technology and thinking, we want to engage all those who are committed to building a cleaner, greener and more sustainable future. Get involved with #cleanfuturenow by sharing your views, insights and opinions. Together, we can create a world of difference.
