  • The company supports the EU’s new policy revision proposal, agreeing that now is the time to speed up transition to green power technologies
  • Schneider Electric continues to deliver new green and digital technology that innovates beyond legacy F-gas solutions with Pure Air, removing technological barriers to green energy transition

Schneider Electric, the global leader in the digital transformation of energy management and automation, has shared its strong support for the European Union Commission’s recent announcement regarding the future use of the world’s strongest greenhouse gas. The EU’s new policy revision proposal includes among its targets SF6, a gas that for decades has been widely used in electrical equipment due its unique suitability and lack of competitive alternatives.

Delivering on its promise of building a full portfolio of SF6-free offers, Schneider Electric continues to deliver a breakthrough suite of environmentally superior and digital technologies to market that avoid the use of the SF6 greenhouse gas, replacing it with pure air. The availability and reliable high-performance of these long-awaited clean technologies make the EU’s current F-gas policy revision effort timely and achievable. If adopted in the future, a revised European policy restricting the use of SF6 would represent a key milestone in the sprint to successfully address European climate goals as the window on a +1.5°C future rapidly closes.
