Siemens CEO offers Friday for Future's Luisa Neubauer a seat on the supervisory board

MUNICH. Siemens CEO Joe Kaeser offered Fridays for Future spokeswoman Luisa Neubauer a seat on the supervisory board of the new company Siemens Energy. Neubauer reacted to this “surprised”, Kaeser told Die Welt. He supports Fridays for Future, emphasized Kaeser. "I want young people to be able to participate actively."

Siemens is currently criticized by the activists of Fridays for Future because the company is to supply a train signal system for a coal mine in Australia. The deputy Greens boss Ricarda Lang described such a business as "absurd". While the whole world is talking about the fires in Australia, "a huge climate killer is being built there," she told RTL and ntv. She expects Siemens to stop deliveries and withdraw support for the project.

Political statements again and again
Before this, Neubauer had warned Siemens against breaking its promise to protect the climate. "The fact that Siemens, as a corporation that repeatedly states that it is striving to achieve climate neutrality by 2030 and that it wants to live up to its responsibility in times of the climate crisis, is now supporting a project that will extract coal by 2080, contradicts this in so many dimensions ", complained Neubauer.

"As a company that has understood - or pretends to understand what the man-made climate crisis means, there is no justification for sticking to a project like the Adani mine," said Neubauer. Kaeser had announced that it would put the project to the test. A decision should be made by Monday.

In the past, Kaeser had repeatedly attracted political attention. Among other things, he accused AfD parliamentary group leader in the Bundestag, Alice Weidel, to be close to National Socialsm. He also called for the release of Sea Watch 3 captain Carola Rackete , who was imprisoned in Italy after illegally entering the port of Lampedusa while ramming a boat from the Italian financial police.
