Schneider Electric is a global leader in energy-efficient electrical systems. Its products range from low-voltage devices for buildings to high-voltage transformers for electricity infrastructure. The French industrial group also develops automated digital solutions for businesses to improve the operational and energy efficiency of their processes, across buildings, data centres, industry and infrastructure. 

Why do we invest?

Schneider Electric boasts strong competitive positions and brand recognition across a breadth of product lines. Investment in research has spurred the development of its EcoStruxture digital technology platform, which uses real-time data from internet-connected systems to analyse and optimise operations. By enabling its customers to reduce their environmental impact without sacrificing efficiency and performance, Schneider Electric is well positioned to meet growing pressure to lower the carbon intensity of processes.

What is their impact?

Schneider Electric is a leader in developing environmental solutions. More efficient systems that cut electricity use not only save money for its customers, but also result in tremendous environmental benefits for the planet. By optimising electrical processes and cutting energy consumption on a large scale, Schneider Electric contributes to the achievement of UN Sustainable Development Goal 9 – building resilient infrastructure, promoting inclusive and sustainable industrialisation, and fostering innovation.
