Siemens’ sustainability award winning rail design, Inspiro, was accomplished through an integrated approach of design and materials that dramatically improved cost and footprint.  The award was granted to Siemens because of their commitment and enthusiasm for putting sustainability into practice.

For Siemens, sustainability is not only a basic ethical principle, but also a question of market and business potential in a globally competitive environment.  Inspiro is a good example of creating leadership position through a holistic approach, exceeding all success criteria and stakeholder expectations.
