Schneider's sustainability

Schneider proceeds with its sustainability impact targets

RUEIL-MALMAISON, August 5, 2021

By engaging, training, and supporting the sustainable transformation of each of its 1,000 partners, Schneider Electric will sharply reduce its Scope 3 emissions. 
 
917 suppliers have now been trained and are ready to drive climate action as part of this project, said the group, which has published its half-year progress overview on setting up and advancing on its 2021-2025 sustainability impact targets. 
 
Schneider Electric, named as the world’s most sustainable corporation 2021 by the Corporate Knights Global 100 Index, announced the acceleration of its sustainability strategy in January, aligned to its commitments regarding climate, resources, trust, equal opportunities, generations, and local communities.
 
Since then, the Group has successfully launched The Zero Carbon Project, its initiative to halve carbon emissions of its top supply chain partners by 2025, a call to action already joined by 91% of them. 
 
As the digital partner for efficiency and sustainability, Schneider Electric also continues to support its customers in attaining their own sustainability goals, with digital innovation and solutions. The Roca Group has recently opted for Schneider Electric's climate change consulting services to accelerate their transformation. Since 2018, Schneider has helped its customers save and avoid 302 million tonnes of CO2 emissions. 
 
“A successful sustainability programme can only be built on trust and engagement.” said Olivier Blum, Schneider Electric’s Chief Strategy and Sustainability Officer. “It’s very encouraging to see such a high-level mobilisation from our supply chain partners in our decarbonisation journey, as well as that of our customers and employees – all of whom count on our unique expertise and experience in this field.” 
 
With regards to local initiatives, 100% of Schneider Electric’s country and zone presidents have identified and established all their local targets for 2025, confirming strong engagement and commitment from around  the globe to deliver always more meaningful sustainability impact.-- TradeArabia News Service
