Schneider Electric accelerates IT Channel Decarbonization

Alina Oprea
Schneider Electric has introduced Zeigo Activate, a new subscription-based software service (SaaS) solution for Channel Partners, designed to help them accelerate climate action. Partners can utilize Zeigo Activate to calculate, measure, and analyze carbon emissions, set accurate, achievable decarbonization goals and build a tailored strategy to improve sustainability. Zeigo Activate is a subscription-based SaaS solution for small and medium-sized partners.

It enables partners to calculate and track energy-related emissions, set a customized implementation roadmap to minimize environmental impact and connect to solution providers specializing in energy efficiency and renewables.

With regulatory changes sweeping across industries globally, sustainability is at the forefront. Zeigo Activate allows simplified data collection to help partners build their energy consumption profile and track their carbon emissions baseline progress, which results in them being able to follow their roadmap to decarbonize. This is key for an SME partner experience who has time pressures on using complex software and limited sustainability expertise. This ensures decarbonization is not a barrier anymore as a personalized roadmap of actions is designed to reduce their emissions, such as energy efficiency projects and renewable energy opportunities. Then partners can connect directly with reputable vendors for the competencies that the project requires and start implementing their customized roadmap seeing estimated costs, savings, and return on investment. 

Zeigo Activate joins two of Schneider Electric's digital sustainability solutions and services, designed to meet the carbon reduction needs of businesses of any size or scale. They include Zeigo Power, which allows European users to digitally tender renewable energy Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs), and Zeigo Network, which connects like-minded companies on the journey to decarbonization and has more than 600 corporate members globally.

In the last year, Schneider Electric has responded to energy crises by focusing on energy efficiency, assisting partners by providing support in developing energy assessments and audits for customers, and initiatives such as its new mySchneider IT Partner Program, Sustainability School for partners and Sustainability Impact Awards celebrating partners and suppliers who embrace sustainability. The company also released a Lifecycle CO2e TradeOff tool, the first of its kind for accurately estimating the total carbon footprint of data centers – including Scope 1, 2, and 3 emissions.

It provides energy and automation digital solutions for efficiency and sustainability.
