Gilles Vermot Desroches, Sustainability Senior VP at Schneider Electric, commented: "As we are closing in on Overshoot Day, this July 29th, the earliest date in human history (20 days earlier than 10 years ago, 56 in front of 2000 Overshoot day), Schneider Electric steps up his efforts for a sustainable world. With Schneider Sustainability Impact, Schneider Electric is engaging its global ecosystem so that all can benefit from safe, reliable and clean energy while taking action towards inclusive growth. Our partnership with the Solar Impulse Foundation is proof of that commitment and a step further towards the achievement of the UN Sustainable Development Goals. In addition, in a spirit of partnership and shared best practice, we have published a white paper on our method to quantify saved CO2 emissions thanks to our solutions, which we hope will embark many more players on the road to carbon neutrality. External recognition is also key, and Schneider Electric demonstrates its leadership this quarter with a renewed Ecovadis gold medal and two Gartner awards for its exemplary supply chain.”
