Schneider Electric, present in more than 100 countries, has built a position of world leadership in each of its activities in the electricity sector. He works for the Digital Transformation of Energy Management and Automation in Residential, Buildings, Data Centers, Infrastructures and Industries.
Since the 2000s, Schneider Electric's strategy has been to work on the challenges of sustainable development in order to reduce consumption and greenhouse gas emissions.
The Schneider Sustainability Impact (SSI) brings together 21 coherent indicators in accordance with the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) announced by the United Nations.
This strategy is based on the digital transition of the energy world, through employee training , gender pay equity, energy consumption , transport emissions , reduced consumption of primary resources with recycling and taking back products or reducing waste . The objective of training nearly a million young people around the world, who share the same values, in the electrical trades could be reached within 5 years.
One of the essential goals being to join the world community to eradicate poverty and thus protect the planet and promote peace and prosperity in the world.
Today, the growth of connected devices is almost 10 times greater than that of connected people. This is the reason why all these actors are working for a better future for the planet. They will allow 70% of new energy capacity to come from renewable energies in rural areas by 2040 because the demand for electricity will increase twice as fast as the total demand for energy.
For example, in Finland, Schneider Electric enabled a large-scale operation on one of the largest supermarket chains in Europe. This giant not only optimized its energy consumption, but also ensured that it was consumed, produced and stored at the best time, which reduced its energy costs by 70%. In addition, a surplus at certain times of the year is redistributed to 500 neighboring homes, which reduces the community's dependence on the local power plant and establishes a new benchmark in terms of efficiency for its customer.
Solutions for a future with safe, sustainable and responsible infrastructures make it possible to fight against climate change.
Of course, Schneider Electric is working to convert its own industry to all of its new measures. Almost all of their company vehicles are electric. Beyond these own buildings, factories and distribution centers, Schneider Electric is building smarter homes thanks to efficient and integrated solutions, aimed at reducing energy consumption and carbon emissions as much as possible thanks to, among other things, these eco-friendly products. -Designed that guarantee top-notch environmental performance.
The logistics chain is not spared by these sustainable development measures. It is upstream and downstream that resources are managed and preserved - the adoption of reusable transport packaging and the recovery of end-of-life products make it possible to establish CO² neutrality and to implement economic models circulars: “waste is wealth”.
The ecosystem he has built allows him to collaborate on his open platform with a large community of partners, integrators and developers to offer his customers both control and operational efficiency in real time.
To achieve all the objectives of global measures to fight climate change, Schneider Electric is proud to actively participate in collective actions that bring together industry leaders and political leaders. In this, they take part in various international initiatives focused on very concrete actions.
