Schneider Electric, the leader in digital transformation of energy management and automation, is recognised as one of the world’s most sustainable companies, tackling the urgency of rapidly reducing carbon emissions and adopting renewable energy solutions to fight the climate crisis. The company’s ambitions to pave the way to a low carbon world are achieved through a three-pronged strategy addressing its own operations, its clients’ carbon footprints, and developing communities.

Led by the Climate Group, RE100 is a global initiative that brings together the world’s most influential businesses committed to 100 per cent renewable electricity. Apple, Google and VISA are among the RE100 partners list, working to accelerate change towards zero carbon grids.
