Schneider Electric (SE) has announced its membership with The Climate Group’s EV100 initiative to launch a Green Fleet policy. By 2030, SE will convert 14,000 company cars in over 50 countries to electric vehicles (EV). The corporation will also install EV charging infrastructure in its major offices and factories, with flagship sites showcasing innovative EcoStruxure e-mobility architecture with microgrid technologies, asset management and new energy management systems.
The leading company in digital transformation of energy management and automation aims to achieve carbon neutrality in its own ecosystem by 2025 and net-zero emissions by 2030 as part of its validated 1.5°C SBT (science-based climate target). Besides joining EV100, SE already partnered with The Climate Group’s EP100 and RE100 initiatives. Alongside with its commitment to The Climate Group initiatives, SE is supporting several start-ups in the field of e-mobility.
EV100 is a global initiative bringing together companies committed to accelerating the transition to EVs and making electric transport the new normal by 2030. Several airports and large corporations like Deutsche Post DHL, Vattenfall, Metro and Unilever are members of EV100. RE100’s purpose is to accelerate change towards zero carbon grids, at global scale. The EP100 initiative aims to double energy productivity by 2030, against a 2005 baseline, setting an ambitious target to double the economic output from every unit of energy consumed. (SP)
