Schneider Electric, SEforALL Create Partnership To Work On UN Energy Goals

Schneider Electric is pursuing its commitment to help reduce energy poverty and provide universal access to environmentally friendly energy, by entering into a partnership with Sustainable Energy for All (SEforALL), a global non-profit organization.  The aim is to accelerate progress towards the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 7 on energy.

The United Nations sustainable development agenda sets 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to achieve by 2030 in order to eliminate poverty, protect the planet and ensure peace and prosperity for everyone everywhere. SDG 7 aims to “ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all” as the prerequisite for child education, quality of life, economic development and effective healthcare systems.

“SDG7 also aims to significantly improve energy efficiency and ensure widespread use of renewable energy in the global energy mix.”

While 1 billion inhabitants will continue to rely on dangerous or “dirty” forms of energy by 2030 under current scenarios, SDG 7 aims at closing this gap to reach universal access. SDG7 also aims to significantly improve energy efficiency and ensure widespread use of renewable energy in the global energy mix.

A committed partnership

A non-profit organization is working with leaders in the government, the private sector and civil society to achieve SDG 7. Through this partnership, Schneider Electric is joining forces with companies such as Enel, Iberdrola and Philips Lighting, as well as organizations including the United Nations Foundation and the Global Off-Grid Lighting Association (GOGLA). As a partner, Schneider Electric commits to helping develop and effectively implement four programmes: “Building Efficiency Accelerator”, “Industrial Energy Efficiency Accelerator”, “People-Centered Accelerator” and the upcoming “Electrification Accelerator”, ensuring that the right resources are available.

Schneider Electric has already assigned employees to direct each of the four programmes. To support this work, the Group will have access to SEforALL resources, such as its heat maps – a tool to help focus resources for maximum impact across energy access, energy efficiency and renewables.

This partnership with SEforALL reinforces Schneider Electric’s commitment to providing universal access to safe, reliable, efficient and sustainable energy, in line with its sustainability strategy.
