Meeting the challenge of climate change will take a collaborative effort from around the world. Every nation has shown they have something to contribute, whether it is technology, consulting, engineering, or all the above. To showcase this global push towards sustainability, in 2022, Schneider Electric announced its first-ever Sustainability Impact Awards for Partners.
This award program delivers rewards that will help our partners strengthen their brand and grow their business. Participation means that partners can:
- Rise above the competition
- Increase visibility in an industry ecosystem
- Showcase capabilities via customer success stories
- Enhance brand and reputation with customers and peers
- Increase future partnership opportunities
- Leverage recognition to attract new business
This competition honored the year’s best sustainability projects from around the world. Hundreds of systems integrators and other Schneider Electric channel partners competed for awards in two categories:
- Sustainability Impact to My Company
- Sustainability and Efficiency Impact to My Customers
The 2022 results are in!
Schneider’s Sustainability Impact Award winners demonstrated tremendous leadership in decarbonizing their own operations – or on behalf of their customers.
With many impressive entries, we’re thrilled to boast that our EcoXpert™ partners claimed a total seven awards to include one global award winner. As members of our EcoXpert program, these partners reap the benefits of our advanced training and certifications—and so do their customers.
