Sustainability Through Digitalisation & Decarbonisation

The world has been focused on solutions that will help create a sustainable future for generations to come. This topic is increasingly attracting the attention of scientists, as well as the public and private sectors

Schneider Electric is a company that has been committed to sustainable business operations for decades. We discussed this topic with Schneider Electric Sales Director for End Users Dragan Buača.

Climate change and energy efficiency have been the focus of your business for a long time. Can these challenges be overcome?

The sooner we start down the path of energy transition, the sooner we will be on the path to energy security and climate change mitigation.

It comes down to three key actions: saving energy, changing the way we use energy and, finally, ensuring the mix of energy sources is much greener and contains more electricity, because that is the only path to decarbonisation.

Fortune magazine recently surveyed the 500 largest companies and found that only 8% of them are fulfilling their sustainability plans. How would you comment on this?

Schneider Electric surveyed more than 500 senior executives from companies on the same list, in order to determine what makes these goals so difficult to achieve. The problem is the unavailability of data, but also the alignment of sustainability goals with those related to business strategies, appropriate supply chains and technologies.

By implementing our EcoStruxure platform in plants or building sites, we are targeting 30% to 50% energy savings thanks to digitalisation. The other element is decarbonisation: energy must be more electric, because electricity is the only passport to decarbonisation

For that, we took two elements: digitalisation is a major disrupter, because when everything is connected you know what is happening, where you spent and where and how you can save. By implementing our EcoStruxure platform in plants or building sites, we are targeting 30% to 50% energy savings thanks to digitalisation. The other element is decarbonisation: energy must be more electric, because electricity is the only passport to decarbonisation.

Considering the significant impact that Schneider Electric has, you are expected to continuously create new green solutions?

One of our latest solutions is the revolutionary AirSeT – an innovative and sustainable switchgear that uses purified air as an insulator, combined with Schneider’s new vacuum-based circuit breaker technology. This is a significant step in the direction of decarbonising electricity and obtaining truly green energy plants.
