Dubai, UAE, 6 July 2021: Schneider Electric has launched a new range of decarbonization and sustainability consulting services for companies based in Saudi Arabia and the Gulf. These services include the identification of energy efficiency savings, carbon offset programs, offsite renewable energy sourcing, electric mobility advising, and supply chain optimization and will provide organizations in the region with a comprehensive range of sustainability services that will ensure they are on track to reduce their environmental footprint, reduce resource costs, and focus on achieving a pathway to net zero carbon dioxide emissions throughout their operations.
Countries across the Gulf have set ambitious targets when it comes to developing greener, more sustainable economies. The UAE has set out its plants to diversify its income resources by moving away from oil as part of its Vision 2021 strategy. Earlier this year, Saudi Arabia announced its Green Initiative, a comprehensive plan to push the country to become “a global leader in forging a greener world”. This included generating 50% of its energy from renewables by 2030 and developing industries that are greener.
Schneider’s Electric’s consultants will help organizations across the region to define their energy and sustainability programmes, helping them to become more efficient, save money and realize new business opportunities in the Gulf’s shifting economies.
“Increased awareness on climate change risk, rising public concern and stakeholder pressure has pushed sustainability to the top of corporate priorities”, explained Schneider Electric’s Sustainability Business Division Director for the Middle East and Africa Capucine Dourdin Jeunet. “We are partnering with our customers to help address these global challenges in corporate and sustainability management with our portfolio of sustainability services.”
“Companies that incorporate sustainability into their strategy and operations will benefit from new revenue streams, they will attract more talent, have better access to capital and strengthen their brand and business, making them more attractive to multiple stakeholders,” added Dourdin Jeunet. “It’s clearly a win-win situation and Schneider Electric is dedicated to supporting our customers as we all push for a more sustainable, greener future for the region.”
