Schneider Electric embraces electric mobility with the climate group EV100 initiative

As part of its net-zero carbon commitment, Schneider Electric, the energy management and automation digital transformation leader, becomes a member of The Climate Group’s EV100 initiative to launch a Green Fleet policy that aims to make its whole car fleet electric by 2030. The announcement is accompanied by the release of the 2020 Progress and Insights Annual Report today, which shows the growing demand for electric vehicles and the fast advancement of organizations towards their goals where models are available.

To limit global warming to 1.5°C, IPCC says CO2 emissions must drop 45% by 2030. Electric mobility, along with decarbonization, decentralization and digitization of energy, is crucial for this future. Schneider Electric commits to a fast transition, ensuring driver comfort and costs. By 2030, it will switch 14,000 company cars in 50+ countries to EV and install EV charging in its main offices and factories, with flagship sites featuring EcoStruxure e-mobility with microgrids, asset management and new energy systems.

In 2019, Schneider Electric ramped up its climate strategy, with the goal of carbon neutrality by 2025 and net-zero by 2030 as part of its 1.5°C SBT. By becoming part of EV100, led by The Climate Group, Schneider Electric promised to fast-track climate action. Moving to an electric fleet will reduce direct CO2 emissions from company cars to zero by 2030.

Leonid Mukhamedov, Executive Vice-President, Global Strategy at Schneider Electric accentuated their vision by stating ““At Schneider Electric, we committed to net zero operational carbon emissions by 2030, in line with a 1.5°C science-based climate trajectory. Joining the EV100 initiative is a key step to deliver this ambition. Such a transformation allows us to embark thousands of our employees, customers, start-ups, together into a variety of innovations. We believe electricity is the future of mobility and we want to demonstrate that a rapid scale-up of EVs can be reached in 10 years. Schneider EcoStruxure’s unique end-to-end approach to eMobility infrastructure delivers comprehensive, seamless, scalable and cybersecure EV charging marketplace solutions for fleets and public places”.
