Schneider Electric has announced the launch of Zeigo, a sustainability software ecosystem built to simplify and accelerate climate action for companies of all sizes.
Zeigo aims to bring existing Schneider Electric digital tools for sustainability together with a new software-as-a-service (SaaS) application – Zeigo Activate – designed to help small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) decarbonise. The new application, developed by Schneider Electric’s sustainability experts, will go beyond existing solutions in the market by delivering easy emissions calculations paired with a customised decarbonisation roadmap and a regionally tailored solutions provider marketplace.
Increasingly, SMEs are being pressured to decarbonise, whether by customers seeking to reduce Scope 3 emissions throughout the value chain or by new global regulatory and compliance obligations. Zeigo Activate will help SMEs measure their emissions baseline, set reduction goals, and accelerate decarbonisation efforts by providing the tools and knowledge needed to move swiftly from ambition to action.
“Many barriers have kept SMEs from decarbonising, including lack of awareness, the availability of pragmatic tools, and limited access to resources. Zeigo Activate levels the playing field for these companies by providing easy, actionable solutions,” said Steve Wilhite, president of Schneider Electric’s Sustainability Business. “The application has the potential to revolutionise how SMEs decarbonise while driving significant value for companies of all sizes seeking to address value chain emissions.”
Zeigo Activate joins two existing Schneider Electric digital solutions rebranded under the Zeigo name that are designed to meet the carbon reduction needs of organizations of any size.
Formerly known as Zeigo, Zeigo Power allows users throughout Europe to digitally tender renewable energy Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs), making clean energy procurement effortless and accessible. Additionally, Zeigo Network – formerly known as NEO Network – connects like-minded companies on the journey to decarbonisation and has more than 600 global corporate members today. The software platform provides access to educational resources, community connections, and a robust solutions provider marketplace for the energy transition.
Zeigo is designed to accelerate the sustainability efforts of both large organizations with clear climate goals and SMEs that are just getting started. Regardless of size, organisations can use Zeigo tools to effectively tackle their climate challenges, including reducing energy consumption and emissions; accessing energy market intelligence and education; and connecting to regional solution providers in renewables, energy efficiency, and carbon offsets to drive action.
“Zeigo puts the power of decarbonisation into the hands of all organisations, and we are excited to see how this ecosystem will accelerate the global net zero pursuits of all of our clients,” concluded Wilhite.
