Schneider Electric Named CDP Gold Consultancy Partner
Louisville, KY. – March 18, 2013 – Schneider Electric, a global specialist in sustainability services and energy management, announced today that it has become a CDP gold consultancy partner. The partnership allows Schneider Electric to provide global guidance to companies looking to implement sustainability initiatives that measure, disclose and reduce carbon, water and other environmental footprints.
“We are honored to become a CDP gold consultancy partner,” said Steve Wilhite, Senior Executive, Schneider Electric Professional Services. “Schneider Electric’s partnership with CDP has always been mutually beneficial and this next step will allow both companies to better serve the global sustainability community.”
CDP is an international, not-for-profit organization providing the only global system for companies and cities to measure, disclose, manage and share vital environmental information. CDP works with market forces, including 722 institutional investors with assets of US$87 trillion, to motivate companies to disclose their impacts on the environment and natural resources and take action to reduce them. CDP now holds the largest collection globally of primary climate change, water and forest risk commodities information and puts these insights at the heart of strategic business, investment and policy decisions.
“Partnering with Schneider Electric makes perfect sense due to the company’s global expertise in the areas of sustainability services and environmental reporting,” said Paul Simpson, CEO, CDP. “We look forward to growing this relationship and believe Schneider’s insights in combination with CDP’s reporting system will benefit companies significantly in terms of increased scores and reduced environmental impact.”
Schneider Electric has extensive experience in assisting companies in getting the most out of CDP reporting. In 2012, Schneider Electric clients increased their year-over-year CDP scores by an average of 19%. In addition to CDP reporting support, Schneider Electric provides an end-to-end sustainability solution that integrates strategy, technology, and implementation capabilities for complex programs. This approach allows Schneider Electric to provide clients with the necessary services and solutions to accelerate their business performance.
