Driving Sustainable Solutions
At Schneider Electric, sustainability is deeply ingrained in our DNA. We firmly believe that achieving our goals requires collaboration, which is why we offer our partners initiatives that foster sustainability.
Schneider Electric Sustainability School for Partners: The Schneider Electric Sustainability School is a unique platform that aims to educate and empower individuals to become sustainability champions. Through a wide range of courses and resources, our partners are equipped with the knowledge and tools to make a difference in their daily lives and work environments.
Sustainability Impacts Awards: Collaboration and partnerships are key to driving meaningful change. That’s why we introduced the Sustainability Impacts Awards, which recognize and celebrate our partners’ exceptional efforts in sustainability. These awards honor those who have demonstrated a strong commitment to sustainability and made a significant positive impact in their respective industries.
Canalys Global Sustainable Ecosystem Leadership Matrix: The inclusion of vendors in the Canalys Sustainable Ecosystems Leadership Matrix is based on various factors, including feedback from channel partners, industry leadership in sustainability, and assessments by Canalys analysts. Schneider Electric’s exceptional performance in creating sustainable solutions –green premium products– and driving positive change in the industry has positioned us as one of the top three vendors and a sustainability champion.
The Path Forward
As we move forward, it is crucial for the entire vendor community to continue leading the industry towards a more sustainable future. The importance of sustainability on corporate agendas cannot be overstated, especially considering the macroeconomic challenges and extreme weather events experienced in 2023. As multinational technology vendors, we must fulfill our environmental commitments and equip our channel partners with the knowledge, tools, and solutions to achieve their sustainability goals.
Meeting Customer Demands
Sustainability presents revenue-generating opportunities for the vendor community, with partners expressing a clear demand for sustainability solutions and support. Vendors are expected to deliver transparent sustainability reports, measurable progress in decarbonizing supply chains, and diverse portfolios of sustainable and efficient products and solutions. By meeting these demands, we can strengthen our reputation as innovative, responsible, and climate-conscious companies.
Looking ahead, maintaining momentum and partner engagement on sustainability will be a key challenge for all vendors, especially the champions. Customers prioritize sustainability when selecting partners, and global regulators are increasing pressure for transparency on product supply chains and emissions. Vendors must expand their sustainability offerings while upholding their reputation as leaders in innovation and responsibility.
As a champion of the Canalys Sustainable Ecosystems Leadership Matrix, Schneider Electric is proud to drive sustainable transformations within the industry. Together with our partners, we will continue to lead the way towards a greener and more sustainable future.
