With buildings accounting for 40% of greenhouse emissions in the EU, it is essential to tackle the sustainability goals of this industry as well as build smart buildings for our cities. On July 7, 2021, Schneider Electric welcomed at its Paris office members of the CEO Alliance to discuss how we can further support climate targets of the European Union to become the first carbon-neutral continent by 2050. With other like-minded European companies, we work together on practical solutions in cross-sector climate protection projects. At Schneider, we believe that digital technologies and electrification are key to preserving our environment and building a better future for all. With the CEO Alliance we back together the European Green Deal and the EU plan to cut carbon emissions by 55% by 2030. Chief Digital Officer of Schneider Electric Peter Weckesser and CEO & Chairman of the Board of AkzoNobel Thierry Vanlancker explain how their companies are helping the building industry become more electrified, more digitized, and more decarbonized.
