The eyes of climate campaigners are on Siemens. It is set to provide technology for a vast coal mine in Australia. What initially appeared to be a lucrative business opportunity, is swiftly becoming a potential disaster for the corporation's image.
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?
The German engineering firm has reaffirmed plans to support the controversial Adani coal mine project. Siemens has come under fire for the project's climate implications, with bushfires currently raging across Australia.
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.
