Tackling the energy gap all around the world
"At Schneider Electric, we are building sustainable communities through energy knowledge and leadership thanks to the Schneider Electric Foundation. Its aim is to contribute to the development of people and societies through education, innovation, awareness-raising and vocational training related to energy. It acts anywhere in the world where the company is present, through its three programs."
Gilles Vermot Desroches,
Sustainability Senior VP of Schneider Electric and General Delegate of Schneider Electric Foundation
|Description||Created in 1998 under the aegis of the Fondation de France, the Schneider Electric Foundation is supporting social entrepreneurs and raising awareness of sustainable development. Since 2013, it also has turned its attention to energy poverty in more mature economies, promoting accessible and affordable energy as a universal and inalienable right. To carry out its work, the Foundation relies on a network of Schneider Electric’s employees, 130 delegates covering 80 countries who are in charge of managing its projects locally.|
