Post on Siemens' Facebook page! Then comment here to let us know you've taken action.

Now will you amplify your impact by posting on their Facebook page?

Siemens is a global brand and is very sensitive to public criticism.

Comment on any Siemens’ post, asking them to rule out working with Adani (the post where Siemens shares their dream to 'make cities more livable, industry more efficient and society more sustainable' would be a good one to comment on – that vision doesn’t align with supporting coal projects, does it?!)

Tips for your Facebook comment:

  • Keep it short and punchy – people (including from Siemens!) are more likely to read a shorter post than a really long one
  • Have a clear ask – ask Siemens to rule out working with Adani
  • Make it personal – after all, this is your message to Siemens! Make it unique to you. You might want to share why you care about stopping projects that will fuel climate damage, like Adani, and protecting our planet

You can also click ‘like’ on other people’s comments to show your support.

Not on Facebook? Still want to take action?

You can give Siemens' offices a call and leave a message for their CEO and senior management!

Thank you!

Dear Joe Kaeser

Very disappointing that you would take this comment: “The Australian people clearly voted to support Adani at the federal election in May 2019, especially in regional Queensland." , as a demonstration of what the people of Australia voted for in the last election.

The outcome of our election was based on a number of economic issues which were poorly understood. But a majority of Australians were then, and more so now, against another coal mine – not only for the damage that it poses to the local environment and the Great Barrier Reef – but more importantly it is time that we moved away from Coal. Global Warming/Climate Change has been with us for a century – escalating in recent decades and it is really time that mankind stand above profits and ideology.

We need to support clean energy.

I understand when you say – well if we don’t provide Adani with the service, someone else will – it is most probably true. But really – you could be the better man. You could say – well not on my watch. Not in my world and the world of the future generations.

Yours sincerely,
Marilyn Perring

Dear Sir, Australia is burning. Over 1 billion animals have been burned alive including the iconic koala. Immediate action is required to halt and reverse global warming . Collaboration with Adani to mine fossil fuels is counter to everything that is required on a global scale at this time. Please do not go ahead. Invest in renewables instead. That is the only way to a sustainable future.

Joe Kaeser,
As I write this I can’t see into the distance for more than fifty or so metres due to smoke haze.I am in the seaside town of Cape Paterson in Victoria, Australia and we are in the midst of the worst bushfires on record. I presume you are an intelligent person and understand completely the implications in terms of climate change that the Adani mine engenders. If this is so then I must ask you why. Why are you participating in such a damaging project? I have to assume you don’t care. Perhaps you think you are rich enough to survive the catastrophic events of global warming. People like me will be fighting this. When we stop this destructive mine from going ahead we will remember the position Siemens took. The world is watching.

I have written to Joe Kaeser at Siemens begging him to withdraw support for this unacceptable coal mine project (Adana) here in Australia.

Dear Joe Kaeser,

I’m writing to you in regard to your recent decision to go ahead with your involvement with the Adani coal mine. I would first like to express my sincere disappointment in this decision. I will certainly take this into account in any future purchases I make and avoid the brand Siemens.

I read your media statement in full and would like to comment on a few key points.

“Securing our planet for the future is not just about experts, this is mostly about leadership. We have enough scientists telling us about the problem already for quite some time – solutions need to be created by leaders solving the complexity of conflicting interests in the political and industrial world.”

I couldn’t agree more. The science is clear and unequivocal. And governments around the world have failed to provide leadership on this issue. And this is why it is moments like these, where leadership is so very important. Sadly, Siemens did not chose to be a strong leader for a transition to a more sustainable future. No matter how small you think Siemens’ contribution in this project is, the whole world was watching you and the only message you sent was that a respectable company supports this irresponsible project, that locks in the old path of fossil fuel based economy.

“At Siemens, we will apply performance-oriented goals that include environmental and social affairs and governance to our company’s Managing Board and our entire senior management. This is nothing to be particularly proud of, because environmental care should not be about money but about responsibility.”

Environmental care should not be about money, but about responsibility… then I really don’t understand why you made the interests of your shareholders, aka money, a priority over the futur of our global environment?

" I do know that we are far from perfect. And, we should have been wiser about this project beforehand. Now, we need to be a supplier, who sticks to its commitments as long as the customer stays on legal grounds, too."

I understand the sentiment that keeping your word and honouring your signed commitment should be a core value of a reputable company. But mistakes happen, and history will reflect on this decision to support a climate wrecking project far more badly than standing with the thousands of concerned people, young and old, across nations, and withdraw from an ill informed previous commitment and show leadership on the fight against climate change.

And finally, and not least, the fact that there are competitors, who would have possibly signed the contract if Siemens had withdrawn its involvement is no reason not to do the right thing. Doing the right thing, especially under difficult conditions, inspires and empowers others to do the same. Many of your competitors might well have followed your lead, if you had chosen to do the right thing by our global community.

Kind regards,
Cathryn 2020-01-13 18:37:02 +1100
Siemens. Profit before People to mine very poor quality coal from automated pits. Wreck our aquifers & Wildlife for a very small return.
Shame. Shame. Shame.
