The Schneider Electric Foundation (under the aegis of the Fondation de France) uses social innovation and community engagement to invest in education, reduce the energy gap, and increase sustainability awareness. The Foundation marked its 20th anniversary in 2018.
The Schneider Electric Foundation supports innovative and forward-looking initiatives to give as many people as possible the energy they need to succeed. Ever optimistic, the Schneider Electric Foundation aims to help build a fairer, lower-carbon society to give future generations the keys to transform our world.
The COVID-19 pandemic has caused widespread disruption around the world. Its impact is being felt throughout every facet of society, especially among our most vulnerable.
We’re launching the Tomorrow Rising Fund to provide response, recovery and resilience to the most affected communities with fundraising and volunteering activities. Together, we can respond to the emergency today and recover education & professional training of vulnerable youth tomorrow.
Unity, solidarity and care for each other will help us overcome the crisis.
At Schneider, safety is everyone’s responsibility. Nurturing a safe, clean and orderly work environment is both our collective responsibility and a function of every Schneider employee, partner, and affiliate. Our story encompasses generations of people who have transformed our company, and the world, for almost two centuries. Today, our heritage has empowered us to innovate at every level, enabling us to become leaders in digital transformation.
Globally, women play a powerful role in sustainability. Across countries, organizations and communities, women make a substantial, positive contribution to growth and innovation, while also impacting environmental and social crises. This still-emerging and significant influence is one reason the United Nations prioritizes gender equality and women’s empowerment as one of its 17 interrelated Sustainable Development Goals.
Equality through sustainable development benefits all
