To mark COP23, Schneider Electric is re-enforcing its aim to become carbon neutral by 2030. At COP21 in Paris in 2015, Schneider Electric announced ten commitments for sustainability. The commitments were aligned with the planet and society barometer, its sustainability scorecard, and contribute to the UN sustainable development goals. These commitments supported the company’s objectives to make its plants and sites carbon neutral by 2030, and to build a coherent industry ecosystem encompassing both suppliers and clients. In October 2017, Schneider Electric announced that it exceeded its barometer target for 2017; a quarter ahead of schedule. Specifically, Schneider Electric’s aims to address the following issues when it comes to climate change: introducing science-based targets (SBTs) to help companies, as well as its own business, capitalise on the new energy landscape opportunities; promoting access to energy as a fundamental human right; providing new solutions for more efficient, more livable and more sustainable cities; and introducing robust, clear and predictable carbon pricing mechanisms for carbon pricing.
