Schneider Electric brings in energy efficiency for a greener future

With The World Environment Day just around the corner, Schneider Electric has renewed and strengthened its 10 sustainability commitments –

  • Avoid the emission of 100 million metric tons of CO2 on customers’ end
  • Use 80% renewable electricity by 2020 and 100% by 2030; and continue to drive energy efficiency toward doubling energy productivity on sites over 2005 – 2030 period.
  • Achieve 75% of turnover under the new Green Premium™ program (2018 – 2020)
  • Avoid 100,000 metric tons of primary resource consumption through ECOFIT, product recycling, and take-back programs (2018 – 2020)
  • Use 100% cardboard and pallets for transport packing from recycled or certified sources by 2020 (Q4)
  • Reach 200 sites labelled Toward Zero Waste to Landfill by 2020 (2015 – 2020) and recover 100% of our industrial waste by 2030 (2015 – 2030)
  • Reduce CO2 emissions from the transport of our goods by 3.5% per year (annually since 2012)
  • Facilitate access to lighting and communication with low-carbon solutions for 50 million underprivileged people by 2025 (2009 – 2025)
  • Propose alternatives to the use of SF6 gas by 2020 (2015 – 2020) and eliminate SF6 from products by 2025 (2015 – 2025)
  • Invest €10 billion in innovation and R&D for sustainability in 10 years (2015 – 2025)

It was in 2015 that the company unveiled 10 sustainability commitments. The goal of these pledges was to ensure that Schneider Electric’s entire ecosystem — from the company’s operations to those of their suppliers, customers, and partners — becomes carbon neutral by 2030.
