Contact Siemens Gamesa
At the Social Commitment area, we will strengthen our support to the communities where Siemens Gamesa operates with a long-term strategy to meet the Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations. We will focus on combating poverty, helping to protect the environment and promoting technology education, relying on the company's volunteers spirit. We want to be an active part of our communities.

Our objectives

  • Strong Volunteering activity
  • Bundle, co-ordinate and enhance all the social activity performed locally
Our strategy and policy

Our strategy groups all the help to society, which is linked to the SDGs of the UN, specifically to the SDG1 No poverty, SDG 4 Quality Education, SDG 13 Climate Action, SDG 14 Life Below Water, SDG 15 Life on land. Our action is independent of the business.

In order to achieve our objectives, the company has defined 3 lines in its strategy:

  • To combat the effects of climate change
  • To promote and encourage education in technological matters, especially in STEM

Social Commitment Policy establishes the compromise and the principles of conduct that must apply within the company in order to contribute to the improvement of quality of life and the creation of wealth.

Social Action
Siemens Gamesa is deeply anchored in the communities in which we operate. We see it as our duty to collaborate in their sustainable development. That is our business model. Long-term acceptance by local communities is our main priority, and being an active part of their activities, their community, our goal. Through the achievement of the UN's Sustainable Development Goals, we also meet the concerns of employees to engage with communities through volunteer activities

SGRE Impact

SGRE Impact project is a company-wide initiative to bring positive change to the communities in which Siemens Gamesa operates while heightening the engagement of employees.

Every year SGRE employees can propose a community engagement project related to the SDG’s selected by the company.


Environmental Projects
The fight against climate change is in the DNA of our business, not only by reducing emissions with our turbines, but also through environmental projects and social action activities contributing to the reduction of the CO2 footprint.

At Siemens Gamesa we believe that reforestation and cleaning up our coasts is one of the best ways to fight climate change and contribute to the protection of the environment

- Each mature tree sequesters 22 kgs. of CO2 annually
- River, beach, coastal pollution is a threat to biodiversity
- Over 3 billion people depend on the ocean for sustenance

Local Projects
In Siemens Gamesa we are committed to the communities in which we operate, for this reason we also engage in local projects to meet their specific needs and promote sustainable social and economic development. From the Social Commitment area we bundle and coordinate these activities to maximize their efficiency and visibility.
Technological Education
Our principles

Siemens Gamesa as a technological leader has the know-how to prepare coming generations in technology, engineering, digitalization, and of course renewable energy. STEM careers and the recruitment of talent are vital to our business.

In line with our desire to meet society´s need for technological advancement, we want to motivate and expose students of all genders and backgrounds to the benefits of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM).

Taking advantage of new technologies, and a collective awareness of the need to improve quality education in STEM to meet the demands of modern societies, our goals are to:


1) Awaken interest in STEM among children and motivate them to pursue a career in these disciplines;

2) Broaden the network of skills among college students for a better STEM workforce

3) Promote diversity among future professionals, especially women, breaking down barriers to professional development and access to the highest levels of corporate leadership

4) Create a network of experts in the field to support a new model of STEM education

We strongly believe that investment in education always pays off. If communities where we work don’t have access to quality education--and well-paying jobs as a result--they won’t thrive, and neither will Siemens Gamesa.
Volunteering Program


In line with our core value: creating a better and sustainable world for generations to come, the Corporate Volunteering Program looks to create beneficial impact within the communities where we operate and the environment.

Our program is intended to be transversal as it involves a wide range of social activities promoted by the company with the common purpose of improving the quality of life and the sustainability of its communities.

This program will be based on two important areas: environmental protection and technological education.

Volunteers with Lurgaia Foundation
In terms of environmental protection, we will carry out reforestation activities as well as coastal area clean-ups to raise environmental awareness and to reduce our carbon footprint, while simultaneously contributing to the United Nations’ Social Development Goals (SDGs) 13 (Climate Action), 14 (Life below Water) and 15 (Life on Land).

We also want to promote STEM education (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) in order to inspire young people to pursue a career in those disciplines. Thereby we contribute to SDG 4: Quality Education.

Volunteering is one of the keys to our commitment to society. The corporate volunteer program includes the figure of the Stars who give their time to help organize locally volunteer events, and to motivate other employees to join the effort. They are a key part of our strategy.

Social Commitment in response to the COVID-19 global crisis
As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to spread, it affects a greater number of people in a greater number of countries, and even the normal functioning of our societies. In times such as these the contributions of the private sector and the solidarity of individuals is essential to help our sanitary systems and to vulnerable collectives. It is of paramount importance that at times such as these we unite as a company and as a community to come out of it stronger.
