Created in 1998, the Schneider Electric Foundation, under the aegis of the Fondation de France, has worked together with its partners to implement solutions to address the energy issues faced by the world’s most underprivileged people. In emerging economies, the Foundation supports professional training programs in energy-related trades, thereby contributing to the Schneider Electric Access to Energy program. In mature economies, the Foundation fights against fuel poverty by offering training and awareness-raising programs for the concerned households. The Schneider Electric Foundation pays special attention to the involvement of its employees across all programs.
