Green economy bolstered as Schneider Electric opens 2500 green jobs worldwide
- Sustainable jobs revolution required to meet tough but vital climate targets
- Schneider Electric’s new Field Service Experts will positively influence climate strategy across all industries, worldwide
MISSISSAUGA, Ontario–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Schneider Electric, the leader in digital transformation of energy management and automation, has recently announced that it is opening recruitment for 2500 Field Service Experts worldwide, roles that boost the global green economy.
The latest IPCC report notes that greenhouse gas emissions must peak by 2025 to give the world a chance to limit future heating to 1.5C above pre-industrial levels. Change is needed on an industrial level to achieve this goal, suggests the report.
A more electric and digital world is key to a sustainable and resilient future. The growing green economy must enable this by promoting a sustainable and circular economy approach.
Schneider’s 2500 new Field Service Expert roles are set to fulfill this need. Already cornerstones of Schneider Electric’s close work with its customers, each Field Service Expert will influence corporate sustainability and active energy management as businesses across the world contribute to climate targets.
Field Service Experts will positively influence customers’ energy decisions
The service engineer role combines tool-based operations to fix and maintain customer infrastructure with digital technologies and modernize assets, which streamline the job’s performance and provide additional insights and services to customers.
They’ll use the power of the IoT and EcoStruxure platforms to digitize and decarbonize facilities and provide advice on sustainability strategies and energy procurement and cybersecurity, safety, and performance. They will work alongside customers to design and implement energy management and circularity strategies, deliver efficiency in their facilities, and sustain results over time. Accelerating on the contribution in savings CO2 for our customers, the Services teams aim at reducing our customers’ footprints by more than 10m tons of eCO2 by 2025 through circularity and energy efficiency solutions.
Schneider Electric’s sustainable service engineers already saved customers 1m tons of CO2 in 2021, while improving equipment safety and reliability for uninterruptable power supplies (UPS).
Frédéric Godemel, EVP of Power Systems & Services at Schneider Electric, said:
“The growth of the green economy is playing a significant role in tackling climate change on a large scale. One of the best ways to reach critical targets is creating green jobs that influence organizations to use greener technologies and make a difference to the planet while fulfilling those who work in them.
Schneider Electric’s new service engineers are set to be powerful influencers and facilitators of green solutions at the heart of the organizations that need them most. We are thrilled to support these 2500 people and the many more they will aid as we all work towards a greener future with better electricity usage. As Electricity 4.0 principles state, a more electric and digital world is key to a sustainable and resilient future.”
Schneider Electric’s sustainability initiatives include its support for helping customers reduce future use of the world’s most potent greenhouse gas, SF6. It has developed a breakthrough suite of environmentally superior and digital technologies to market that avoid using SF6, replacing it with pure air.
