      Six pillars of our environmental strategy

      1. Deploy low-CO2 and resource-efficient strategies for partner-compatible growth path

      In 2015, we defined a CO2 roadmap with a 2020 – 2030 timeframe. It identifies ways to remain “COP21 and +2° compatible” and decouples our activities, including our growth journey and supply chain transformations, from climate implications. Through R&D efforts and ecoDesign Way, we develop a broad range of products, services, and solutions that bring significant CO2 avoidance to our customers.

      2. Building an increasingly green supply chain

      Resource efficiency and productivity are our mottos. We drive efforts toward energy efficiency, water efficiency, the reduction of transportation and manufacturing externalities, and the adoption of green best-available techniques in our plants and distribution centers. Additionally, our key processes embed environmental considerations, making environmental performance and resource productivity key dimensions of major decisions.

      3. Considering waste as worth

      We drive an “obsession toward zero waste” across our 1,250 facilities globally. Waste minimization, reuse, recycling, and land avoidance have become an integral part of our plants’ and distribution centers’ performance scorecards, and we see constant progress.

      4. Promoting green attributes and value-adds

      Our customers are central to our environmental commitments. Today, more and more Schneider Electric customers keenly quantify our offers’ environmental credentials. We’ve invested significantly in designing, implementing, and further innovating our Green Premium ecolabel. Developing tools which enable our customers to articulate in non-technical terms the value addition of our offers’ environmental differentiators.

      5. Implementing a circular economy

      Schneider Electric circularity expresses itself in many ways. On the resource and waste sides, we work toward cutting waste, reusing more and implementing end-of-life services, while on the offer side, we grew our field and management services and retrofit, with the result of helping our customers enjoy energy management and automation services using fewer resources: “Doing more with less.”

      6. Strengthening our environmental governance

      Environmental stewardship is integral to our green growth and commitments, embedded across all our functions’ processes, and guiding how we select and grow our supplier base. Through independent assessments, plus hundreds of field visits and audits, we review environmental risks in our supply chain to comply with changing regulations, striving to address key risks and changing expectations of our global ecosystem.

      Enabling access to energy for those who need it

      We believe the fight against climate change won’t be effective without involving vulnerable populations in decision making and coherent actions for 1.3 billion people who have no access to energy. 

      Doing more with less is possible today and we need to actively engage the society to change behaviors and drive sustainability awareness.

      • Access to energy is a basic human right

        We believe that everyone on our planet should have access to reliable, safe, efficient, and sustainable energy. We are developing inclusive business models and running worldwide programs to enable access for electricity to the people who need it.

      • Our commitments to sustainability On the road to carbon neutrality

        On the eve of COP21, Schneider Electric presented 10 commitments for sustainability. Five of them are taken from the Planet & Society barometer 2015-2017. 

        The objective is to reduce the Group’s emissions on the three scopes, and develop new technologies for energy efficiency so that Schneider Electric and its ecosystem demonstrate carbon neutrality by 2030.

      Environment strategy and circular economy

      Schneider Electric enables environment-friendly growth and efficient use of resources by acting with transparency and accountability. Traditionally, most businesses implement the linear economy approach, which follows the model of take, make and dispose. 

      However, Schneider Electric adopts the circular economy by rethinking and redesigning our products and components so there are no resources lost in the process. 

      The circular economy is designed to facilitate product reuse, recycling and cascading. It requires an implementation of supply chain loops to collect and ensure the second life of products, components and materials.
