- The 14 companies that issued a joint statement today endorsing an international agreement to reduce carbon emissions included leaders of some of the world’s most carbon-intensive industries: coal miners BHP Billiton (NYSE:BHP) and Rio Tinto (NYSE:RIO), oil majors Shell (RDS.A, RDS.B) and BP, aluminum producer Alcoa (NYSE:AA) and cement maker LarfargeHolcim (OTCPK:HCMLF).
- A climate deal could eventually mean new taxes and regulations on products central to the companies’ business models, but the companies say they seek clear direction from world leaders to guide long-term investments and transparency to ensure all countries apply the same rules to emissions.
- While UN climate talks scheduled for December in Paris are not likely to result in a global price on carbon, individual countries are submitting their own plans that could lead to market opportunities for major players.
- The statement was also joined by Alstom (OTCPK:ALSMY, OTCPK:AOMFF), Calpine (NYSE:CPN), Hewlett-Packard (NYSE:HPQ), Intel (NASDAQ:INTC), National Grid (NYSE:NGG), PG&E (NYSE:PCG), Schneider Electric (OTCPK:SBGSF) and Siemens (OTCPK:SIEGY).

- Siemens (OTCPK:SIEGY +2.8%) is higher after reporting a slight decline in FQ3 net profit to €1.36B ($1.49B) from €1.37B in the year-ago quarter, but the result is clearly better than the analyst consensus forecast of €1.03B.
- Siemens also is sticking to its full-year outlook, saying it expects a strong FQ4 despite a softening market outlook.
- FQ3 revenues gained 8% to €18.84B on strong growth in the company’s health care, energy management, digital factory and building technologies units; new orders rose 4%, helped by a €1.6B long-term train maintenance order in Russia at Siemens Mobility.

- Profit at the power and gas unit sank 47% to €289M, partly hurt by €106M in charges connected with one project’s higher material costs and customer delays, as well as lower margins in the gas turbine business and higher selling and R&D expenses.
