        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).

        Means
        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.
