Impact Project

Ramadan

SGRE Impact Project managed to promote positive changes in the local communities where Siemens Gamesa operates, however, there is still much to be done. As a company that is highly engaged with sustainability, Siemens Gamesa looks to continue bringing solutions to the communities where it operates, helping them develop in a sustainable manner, and becoming increasingly inclusive and independent.


Based on the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, and focused on SDG1 No poverty, SDG4 Quality education,  SDG13 Climate Change, SGG14 Life below water and SDG15 Life on earth.

Siemens Gamesa employees are call to action and on a year basis, they can submit they projects to be supported. Most of these projects are scheduled for a 12-month period and more than half of the projects will require some form of volunteering by Siemens Gamesa employees in these countries!

 

6th SGRE Impact Project

 

 

 

Since 2018, Siemens Gamesa’s SGRE Impact initiative, promoted by the Social Commitment department, encourages the company’s employees from around the world, to advocate causes they’re passionate about, and mobilize funding as well as volunteers in some cases, to participate in these projects. The goal: effect positive change in the local communities in which the global wind energy pioneer is present.

 

 

In line with our goals to combat poverty, fight against climate change and promote technological education in the communities where we operate, we are launching the 6th SGRE Impact Project edition focusing mainly on combating poverty. As Siemens Gamesa employee, we encourage you to take part in this project sending your proposals.

 

 

The focus area of this edition of the SGRE impact project will be social and humanitarian aid to combat poverty but, due to the paramount importance of promoting STEM education and mitigating climate change effects, projects related to these topics will be considered, as the Social Commitment department is committed to United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, specifically to the SDG1 No poverty, SDG 4 Quality Education, SDG 13 Climate Action, SDG 14 Life Below Water, SDG 15 Life on land.
