Steve Scrimshaw, Country Lead, Gas and Power UK and Ireland, Siemens, said:
“Siemens UK welcomes the Committee on Climate Change report on Net Zero. Businesses need to respond to the urgency and scale of the climate challenge and Siemens is committed to make our own operations net zero by 2030.
“Government and politicians have an import role to play. Climate change transcends politics and we call for immediate cross-party commitment to deliver net zero emissions by 2050 in line with the CCC report.
“Net zero is a big challenge and businesses need to make big investments to deliver it. Government can help by setting clear policy direction, creating the right market conditions through financial mechanisms such as carbon pricing, training and skills and setting standards through regulation to raise the bar. We are committed to work with government to make this ambitious target a reality for society and future generations.”
