Schneider Electric South Africa, the global specialists in energy management and automation, celebrated its fifth annual Global Environment Event at the Pastoral Centre Pre-School and Crèche, in Kliptown, Soweto.
Joining in the movement to support Earth Overshoot Day, Schneider Electric South Africa has taken the pledge to #MovetheDate. Earth Overshoot Day marks the date when, according to Global Footprint Network, humanity’s demand for ecological resources and services exceeds what Earth can regenerate in that same year.
“As a company, we are doing what we can to #MovetheDate of Earth Overshoot Day to December 31. Schneider Electric is aware of its responsibility to support economic and social development while reducing its environmental footprint, leveraging green innovations and taking actions towards a responsible industrial economy,” says Zanelle Dalglish, Schneider Electric Anglophone Africa head of sustainable development.
“Our focus for this year’s Global Environment Day will be to contribute positively to the environment, while addressing the needs of the underprivileged and providing them with sustainable access to the economy as well as sustainable food sources.”
