  • LEAP to bring together major technology companies, start-ups and venture capitalists to create greener, sustainable future for generations to come

Schneider Electric has announced its participation in the inaugural LEAP conference, taking place at the prestigious Riyadh Front Expo Centre from February 1st  to 3rd, 2022. The company will highlight the integral role that digital transformation and green technologies will play in achieving Saudi Arabia’s Vision 2030.

During the event, Schneider Electric’s Executive Vice President of International Operations and Member of the Executive Committee, Luc Remont, will participate in an important panel discussion on how to achieve a sustainable future for all. The panel will highlight the importance of sustainability, driven by innovation and technology to achieve a better and greener future for all. This agenda is aligned with the Saudi Green Initiative - part of the Vision 2030 strategy - to tackle environmental challenges faced by not only the Kingdom, but the entire region as well.  

Through the exchange of knowledge and technology know-how, Schneider Electric will engage with thought leaders and companies to explore how they can leverage digital transformation and green technologies to become more energy-efficient, productive, and most importantly, sustainable.

Luc Remont, Executive Vice President of International Operations at Schneider Electric commented, “In the face of heightened climate change and risks, Schneider Electric accelerates on its commitments and business strategy in Saudi Arabia. Sustainable digital innovation, powering our lives through smart green energy is the fastest way to decarbonize buildings, homes, data centers, infrastructure, and grids. We are excited to be a part of the first-ever LEAP conference and connect with like-minded experts to put the spotlight on world-leading process and technologies – bridging progress and sustainability for all.”

Sustainability is at the heart of the Vision 2030 with the Saudi Green Initiative aiming to reverse environmental degradation and climate change through an extensive reforestation project and a shift to the use of renewable energy resources. It also involves the planting of 10 billion trees in the country, restoring 40 million hectares of degraded land, generating 50% of electricity from renewables by 2030, and eliminating over 130 million tons of carbon emissions.

Mohamed Shaheen, Cluster President for Saudi Arabia and Yemen at Schneider Electric said, “Saudi Arabia is leading the way when it comes to having a comprehensive sustainability vision and Schneider Electric is committed to contributing towards this vision through our local manufacturing, helping young Saudis become leaders in the sustainable energy space and offering world-class green technology and innovation to realize a greener future for the Kingdom.”
