Schneider Electric’s commitment
Despite a low energy consumption for its industrial processes, Schneider Electric adopts a proactive approach which drove it to conduct a carbon assessment* in 2007 for its emissions and those of its partners (suppliers and logistics providers).
For carbon assessment it starts with a departure photo which allows direct and indirect emissions to be assessed.
- To prioritise the weight of these emissions according to:
activities and types of products sold by the Group, different emission points (energy consumption by sites, purchases, logistics, etc.).
- To appreciate its dependence on the use of fossil fuels.
- To propose action plans to reduce these emissions to reduce the carbon content in all sectors studied, to reduce its economic vulnerability.
