Germany promotes new deal between Africa and EU - Siemens considers leaving Australia coal project - Mali supporting startup culture in Bamako
At Siemens' annual shareholder meeting in Munich, climate change took center stage as activists protested outside. The company's vocal CEO, Joe Kaeser, acknowledged the issue, but is sticking to his plans.
Siemens intends to honor a controversial contract to supply signaling systems to an Australian coal mine. DW's Henrik Böhme says this was the right decision for the moment, but the incident shouldn't be repeated.
Siemens' support for Adani's coal mine in Australia has outraged environmentalists, but it's not a unique case. Hundreds of companies and countries around the world are planning to expand their coal activities. But why?
As bushfires rage in Australia, the country's coal sector is in the firing line over its high carbon emissions. So too is Siemens over its role in a huge mine project that has courted much controversy.
