Schneider Electric launches inaugural sustainability awards

The inaugral Schneider Electric Sustainability Impact Awards, the first initiative from the Partnering for Sustainability Program, will recognise the critical role partners of Schneider play in delivering a more resilient, sustainable electric world.

The Partnering for Sustainability program is a continuation of Schneider’s vision to leverage its extensive ecosystem to empower partners to move towards a more sustainable future. It includes comprehensive education and training, a simplified product portfolio, an open and collaborative support ecosystem and digital knowledge and expertise. By providing four easy steps for partners to follow to future proof their businesses for life, the program aims to empower partners to become more sustainable in their own practices and supporting their customers on the path to net zero. 

The Schneider Electric Sustainability Impact Awards will recognise partners ranging from IT partners, panel builders, system integrators, contractors, industrial automation distributors and OEMs, in two categories:

  • Sustainability – Impact for my company: Recognizing partners who exhibit sustainability leadership in decarbonising their operations
  • Sustainability and Efficiency – Impact for customers: Recognising partners who demonstrate sustainable leadership by enabling their customers achieve their decarbonisation goals

Entries will be carefully evaluated on how they are leveraging Schneider Electric solutions to electrify their operations, reduce energy supply, increase operational efficiency and embrace circularity across the value chain. 

Nominations are now open to any organisation globally that uses Schneider Electric solutions. The deadline to submit is 25 November 2022. All nominations and submissions will be shortlisted for the Regional Award, before streamlining further for the Global Award. The final winner will be announced in January 2023. 

“We are all on the same mission – to accelerate the path to net zero. At Schneider we want to recognize those who are embedding positive change in their business operations. Partners who are excelling at this will set a precedent for others to follow suit.” said Rohan Kelkar, executive vice-president of power products at Schneider Electric. “We know there’s power in numbers and together we can deliver a significantly larger impact through considered sustainable and efficient practices.”
