Rueil-Malmaison, France, May 20, 2021 /3BL Media/ - Schneider Electric, the leader in digital transformation of energy management and automation has reached an agreement with Roca Group, a world leader in the design, production and commercialization of products for the bathroom space to define a new roadmap towards decarbonization, establishing a single, global strategy across the Group.
Here in the U.S., the public sector has set ambitious decarbonization goals, including recommitting to the Paris Agreement and outlining the Biden-Harris Climate Plan. These are strong first steps in the path to net-zero emissions and limiting global warming. However, federal and state ambitions will only take us so far.
Climate change is the biggest challenge facing humanity today. It’s global, all-pervasive, and accelerating. The climate change solution, therefore, has to be equally comprehensive: it requires us all – governments, companies, investors, and individuals ─ to deploy not just single-track solutions and long-term pledges, but a whole arsenal of approaches and concrete actions, across multiple fronts ─ now.
At the government level, thankfully, awareness and action have picked up substantially.
Faurecia, one of the world’s leading automotive technology companies, announced that it has signed an exclusive advisory contract with Schneider Electric to procure offsite renewable electricity as part of its CO2 neutral program. Under the agreement, Faurecia will benefit from Schneider Electric’s support in the development and deployment of competitive processes for power purchase agreement sourcing to cover all Faurecia sites in Europe, North America, China and Brazil.
