27 September 2023


Schneider Electric, the leader in the digital transformation of energy management and automation, has re-joined the Green Building Council of South Africa (GBSA), a move that confirms the company’s commitment to promoting and enabling sustainable practices in the local building industry.


The GBSA is one 75 members of the World Green Building Council and operates across the commercial, residential, and public sectors to ensure that buildings and homes are designed, built, and operated in an environmentally sustainable manner.

The research, conducted in partnership with WSP, also finds that retrofitting buildings using a digital-first approach is best pathway to decarbonisation.


“Becoming members of the GBSA undoubtedly enhances our position and reputation as trustworthy solution provider in the building segment. Schneider Electric is one of the world’s leaders in the energy management which plays an all-important role in establishing a building industry that is committed to sustainable practices, enabled by digital technologies,” says Thabang Byl, Buildings Segment Lead at Schneider Electric

  • Sustainability leadership, which sees Schneider Electric acting as voice for energy management in the South African building industry.
  • Access to resources – the GBSA provides exclusive access to the latest research, tools, trends, and case studies in the green building industry.
