Raquel Espada is Vice President of Energy Services and Sustainability at Schneider Electric. In this interview, she outlines the company's sustainability strategy and the projects they are carrying out.
Question: In Schneider Electric, you have two aspects in terms of sustainability: to be suppliers of energy efficiency solutions and to implement sustainable measures in your own processes. How do you manage this challenge?
Answer: Sustainability is in our DNA and is one of the added values we offer. Since 2004, we have been working on an energy program focused on reducing our energy consumption and carbon footprint by using our own solutions and services, with which we have achieved more than 20% energy savings globally and 40% in the U.S.
