Launched in 2022, the awards honor the contribution of Schneider’s partner ecosystem in creating a more sustainable and electric world. This year, Schneider is broadening the scope of eligible companies to include customers and suppliers as well as channel partners. The selection criteria have also been updated to address wider efforts to achieve net-zero targets through electrifying and digitizing operations. Submissions will be open from now until November 17, 2023, and the global winners will be announced in April 2024.
The new award categories introduced this year include:
- 'Impact to my Customers': rewarding partners that demonstrate sustainable leadership by enabling their customers to achieve their decarbonization goals.
- 'Impact to my Enterprise': rewarding customers that exhibit sustainability leadership in decarbonizing their own operations.
- 'Impact to my Enterprise for Large or Midsize suppliers': rewarding suppliers that are engaged in the Zero Carbon Project, a Schneider-led initiative aimed at halving the operational carbon emissions of the company’s top 1,000 global suppliers by 2025.
In addition to the above, Schneider has updated the awards selection criteria with a more integrated approach to sustainability. The focus remains on entrants’ decarbonization efforts to Electrify, Reduce, and Replace while also looking more broadly at their endeavors to create an Electricity 4.0 future through actions to Strategize, Digitize, and Decarbonize.
This includes improving energy efficiency and implementing digital tools and technologies as well as other examples of impact and innovation. In addition to receiving valuable recognition, award winners benefit from global visibility which could lead to new business opportunities.
Rohan Kelkar, Executive Vice President of Power Products at Schneider Electric: “In our shared pursuit of accelerating the path to net-zero, we are on a mission together. At Schneider Electric, we are proud to open our annual Sustainability Impact Awards for the second year running to include our customers and suppliers, in addition to our partners. There is power in numbers, and we hope to celebrate and empower our ecosystem of partners to continue embodying positive change within their business operations.”
Sharing his thoughts, Nikhil Pathak, VP, Offer Marketing and Business Development, Schneider Electric India, said, “At Schneider Electric, we put great emphasis on partner enablement and driving our technology thought leadership together. We are thrilled to announce the second year of the Schneider Electric Sustainability Impact Awards and are excited to open nominations to our customers and suppliers. We want to recognize those who are making positive impact to drive sustainability, either in their own practices or by supporting their customers on the path to net zero.
