• Commits to net-zero biodiversity loss from its operations by 2030
• Schneider sites to deploy biodiversity conservation and restoration programs
Schneider Electric, the leader in the digital transformation of energy management and automation today outlined a series of actions aimed at protecting and restoring biodiversity, which is under threat in many parts of the globe.
Schneider Electric was recognized by Corporate Knights as the most sustainable corporation in the world and has a long track-record in environmental and climate protection, and last year pledged to fight biodiversity loss. The commitments detailed today, in the run-up to International Biological Diversity Day on May 22, represent concrete steps to deliver on that pledge, and have been made as part of the Act4nature International, an alliance of international companies, NGOs, academic bodies and public institutions that aims to accelerate business action in support of nature.
The alarming pace of biodiversity loss and environmental degradation, along with climate change, has become an increasingly urgent issue that undermines not just local ecosystems and individual species, but ultimately heralds potentially major food security issues and other challenges for societies, economies and companies around the globe. Addressing it requires concerted action -- and corporates have a responsibility to play a part.
