Schneider Electric wins Microsoft sustainability award
Schneider Electric (SE) has been awarded the Energy & Sustainability 2022 Microsoft Partner of the Year Award for its EcoStruxure platform. These awards are given out to Microsoft partners that have used Microsoft-based applications, services or devices in particularly successful and innovative ways.
SE’s EcoStruxure platform is a software suite that helps users keep track of their systems and analyse their energy usage and expenditure. The company claims the software has helped its customers reduce their carbon emissions by 84 million tonnes — a saving of 347 million tonnes since 2018.
Olivier Blum, Executive Vice-President Energy Management at Schneider Electric, said: “Receiving the 2022 Microsoft Energy & Sustainability Partner of the Year Award is a great recognition of the collaborative impact we are making together, to tackle climate change.
“We are at a critical juncture. Unless immediate action is taken to reduce emissions, we will shortly pass the point of no return. Companies are central to avoiding this; however, alone the impact will not be enough. That is why collaborations such as the one between Schneider and Microsoft are needed to supercharge innovation efforts and create the technology which can turn the tide.”
Nick Parker, Corporate Vice President of Global Partner Solutions at Microsoft, said: “I am honoured to announce Schneider Electric as the 2022 Microsoft Energy & Sustainability Partner. Schneider Electric were outstanding among the exceptional pool of nominees. We were extraordinarily impressed by the innovative use of Microsoft Cloud technologies as part of its EcoStruxure software solutions.”
