Impact investing to close the energy gap

“Impact investing is a way to promote Social Enterprises that place social factors at the heart of their mission, and engage in applying innovative solutions to tackle the root cause of existing social issues. Schneider Electric went into impact investing in 2009 when we created a fund called Schneider Electric Energy Access (SEEA).
We strongly believe that impact investing will be a part of the solution to close the energy gap in the coming years, and that Schneider Electric will remain a major contributor in achieving this goal.”
