Global Director Smart Cities

What makes the company’s services and products smart?


Our mission is to help businesses meet their energy challenge -keep global warming below the 2°C limit- while achieving better operational efficiency. We put ethics and responsibility at the center of our interactions with our customers, partners and suppliers, employees, and the communities where we operate. We want to be a corporate citizen and a responsible employer. In new economies, we develop solutions to provide reliable energy to the 1.1 billion people that do not have access to energy.

In mature economies, we address the hundreds of millions of people living in fuel poverty. Schneider Electric is committed to meeting energy challenges while acting civically and responsibly at all its locations, with measured progress plans, accurate and transparent objectives and audited results which are shared openly internally and externally. This policy is based on external commitments in order to progress collectively, on international standards for corporate social responsibility and on the recognition from the worldwide leading sustainability rating agencies.

What can the company offer cities within the USC program?


Today's cities cover only 2% of the planet’s surface but hold 50% of the world’s population. They also generate 80% of the global CO₂ emissions, and consume 75% of the energy. This rapid urbanization presents challenges to existing city infrastructures.

Our smart city energy and management solutions can help meet these challenges and prepare today’s cities to meet existing and future needs in information and communication technology.
