Schneider Electric’s mission for a sustainable future
50 % of global CO2 emissions could be eliminated
Schneider Electric calculated that 50 % of global CO2 emissions could be eliminated by 2040 if digitally enabled energy saving measures were implemented in just half of existing buildings, in tandem with existing global electrification and decarbonization initiatives. At the company’s Innovation Summit, which took place in October, Schneider Electric, the leader in digital transformation of energy management and automation, called on the more than 3,500+ customers, partners, suppliers and influencers to work together to make this a reality for the improved efficiency of their businesses and a more sustainable planet and development for all. Buildings, data centers, infrastructure and industry are responsible for around 70 % of the world’s energy use.
