PROFILE 188 Innovative technologies to mitigate climate change The most efficient way to combat climate change is to employ innovative technologies that increase the efficiency of power generation, transmission and utilisation in industry, buildings and transportation. With its broad portfolio, Siemens is uniquely positioned to address these challenges. The company invests more than €2 billion per year of its R&D budget in environmental technology, has 30,000 patents in this field, and the products it launched on the market eliminated in 2006 around 15 times the level of global CO 2 emissions that the company itself produces.
