Schneider Electric has announced it is driving “Partnering for Sustainability Initiative” by empowering partners to look towards supporting and growing with Schneider’s partner ecosystem.
Recognising the critical role its partners play in delivering a more resilient, sustainable electric world, the new programme is designed to better equip partners to understand and meet the goals of their customers. It includes comprehensive education and training, a simplified product portfolio, an open and collaborative support ecosystem and digital knowledge and expertise. Complementing this vision are new products in its TansferPacT, PowerPacT and TeSys Giga ranges.
Recent research from Bain revealed that only 7 percent of companies are delivering on their sustainability plans, and over 40 percent of customers look to their partners for strategic support to achieve their environmental goals. There is a clear commercial opportunity for partners to grow their businesses with sustainable, resilient solutions and help accelerate and scale the path to net zero in the process.
As part of the Partnerships of the Future programme, Partnering for Sustainability is a continuation of Schneider’s vision to leverage its extensive ecosystem to empower partners to move towards a more sustainable future. It provides four easy steps for partners to follow to future proof their businesses for life by becoming more sustainable in their own practices and supporting their customers on the path to net zero.
“If we are to limit global warming to 1.5 degrees, we need to accelerate the path to net zero,” said Rohan Kelkar, executive vice-president of power products at Schneider Electric. “At Schneider we have the technology, solutions and know-how to help decarbonise our economies. Our partners have a critical role to play to scale action and deliver on customers’ decarbonisation journeys.
“With our new Partnerships for Sustainability initiative, we hope to equip partners with the skills and technology to capitalize on the business opportunity and accelerate a sustainable future.”
