Mumbai, November 24, 2022: Schneider Electric, the leader in the digital transformation of energy management and automation, will be celebrating the first anniversary of its sustainability initiative Green Yodha. The initiative targeted at building collective climate action through conscious citizens, businesses, and institutions reached over 10 million individuals & businesses in the last 1 year.

It adopted a segment-wise outreach approach and created awareness with companies operating in Power & Grid, Consumer Products & Goods, Mobility and Water, and Water Waste Management, etc., through varied digital and on-ground initiatives. In the maiden year, a large number of organizations, including JK Cements, Pepsico, Marriott Hotels, UST Global, 3M, etc., have become Green Yodha.

On this occasion, Anil Chaudhry, Zone President, India, and CEO & MD Schneider Electric India Pvt. Ltd said, “Sustainability is at the core of Schneider Electric’s business. We aim to be a catalyst driving sustainability at corporate and individual levels.

Green Yodha initiative nudges corporates to turn their climate-positive intent into action. I am extremely happy that this powerful initiative has already created strong momentum and reached over 10 million individuals and businesses. This is a proud moment, and I congratulate everyone who has chosen to act and become a Green Yodha. This initiative is a testament to our commitment to India’s sustainable future. We must keep moving to maintain the equilibrium and achieve the #NetZero target.”

Highlighting the importance of the Green Yodha initiative, Rajat Abbi, VP-Global Marketing, Greater India, Schneider Electric, said, “Green Yodha is a strategic initiative that draws its strength from like-minded individuals who want to make a climate-positive change. We are thrilled with the overwhelming response this initiative has garnered within a year.

We have connected with leaders and decision-makers through targeted outreach to spread awareness across states. We are pleased that leading public and private organizations, partners, and suppliers have come forward to embark on their sustainability journey with us. We will continue to accelerate both physical and digital routes to expand the community of Green Yodha and help India achieve its sustainability goals”.

During the year, Schneider Electric also became the sustainability partner for the Rajasthan Royals IPL team. The team and management pledged to become a Green Yodha and play a pivotal role in transforming cricket into an environment-friendly game. 

Technology transfer and collaborations in the industry will be pivotal to achieving net-zero emissions by 2070, a target that was announced by PM Modi last year. In this direction, Schneider Electric is strongly supporting decarbonization efforts undertaken by its partners and customers with the adoption of energy-efficient technologies and green-premium products and exploring endless possibilities in universal automation.

SE Ventures, a global venture capital fund backed by Schneider Electric, declared a €500 million Fund II founding the firm as one of the largest VCs focusing on industrial technology and climate. Backed by Schneider Electric, the global leader in the digitalization of industrialization automation and energy management, this move builds upon a 2018 Fund I to bring SE Ventures to €1 billion of committed capital. Fund II will begin deployment in January 2023, doubling down on SE Ventures’ track record of victory as an accelerant for category-defining companies in climate tech, mobility, industrial AI, cybersecurity and prop-tech.
