Schneider Electric, the leader in digital transformation of energy management and automation, today announced that it has been recognized by Microsoft as the company’s 2021 Sustainability Changemaker Partner of the Year Award winner. The award recognizes the impact Schneider has had helping its customers set and achieve decarbonization goals using its flagship EcoStruxure™ software solutions, which are underpinned by Microsoft technologies.

For the period from 2018-2020, Schneider Electric helped its customers save 134 million tons of CO2 emissions, now reaching 276 million tons saved by the end of the first quarter of 2021. The Group was named the world’s most sustainable corporation by Corporate Knights in February, helping companies to bridge the gap between setting climate change ambitions and achieving them. Using its EcoStruxure™ portfolio of solutions, which are powered by the most advanced evolution of Microsoft Azure, Schneider helps organizations set, achieve, measure and report on science-based decarbonization targets, while positively impacting their bottom line.
Customers Schneider Electric has helped, together with Microsoft, include JLL, one of the world’s largest owners of real estate. JLL has set bold commitments to reduce its carbon footprint and obtain actionable energy and sustainability data across its investment portfolio.
With this award, Schneider Electric was also recognized by Microsoft for developing a comprehensive energy management and sustainability strategy for Blackstone, one of the world’s largest private equity firms. Schneider Electric implemented its flagship ESG software solution, EcoStruxure™ Resource Advisor, to capture and normalize energy and utility data at all levels of Blackstone’s portfolio, from individual sites to regional cross sections.

Data from Resource Advisor allows Blackstone to negotiate contracts with utilities and other suppliers, getting the right source of energy at the lowest possible rates. The data is also used to develop sector-specific scorecards, which are automatically updated to drive program participation across critical KPIs. This has helped Blackstone to save tens of millions of dollars on its energy consumption from sustainability efforts and strategic energy sourcing. In September 2020, Blackstone set a goal of reducing carbon emissions by 15% within the first three years of buying any asset or company across its portfolio. Solutions from Schneider Electric are a key component of Blackstone’s success in achieving this goal.

With more than 15 years of sustainability leadership, Schneider Electric has also committed to achieve net zero across the entirety of its value chain by 2050, and, earlier this year, implemented its Zero Carbon Project, an ambitious new program designed to help its top 1,000 suppliers reduce their emissions 50% by 2025.
