Schneider Electric and Engie Collaborate to Promote Sustainability


A recent partnership between Schneider Electric, a French energy management company, and utility firm Engie, showcases the positive environmental impact of tax incentives provided by the U.S. Inflation Reduction Act. This collaboration sets a positive example for large firms, encouraging CFOs and finance departments to invest in renewable energy.

Under the Inflation Reduction Act, companies developing clean energy projects can sell tax incentives to other companies, redirecting funds towards additional clean energy initiatives. This provision streamlines the process and benefits a wider group of stakeholders. Engie, for example, plans to build renewable energy projects in Texas and sell the tax credits to Schneider Electric. The savings from these credits will allow Schneider Electric to buy more renewable energy credits, contributing to increased renewable energy usage on the grid.

This partnership not only promotes sustainability but also demonstrates how companies can make sustainability profitable. Schneider Electric aims to achieve net-zero emissions by 2030 and views this partnership as a blueprint for similar deals. By leveraging tax credits and promoting renewable energy, these companies are driving decarbonization efforts.

This innovative approach to clean energy projects highlights the importance of public support in sustaining high-quality content. To continue supporting initiatives like these, donations are crucial. Additionally, individuals can take steps to reduce their environmental footprint, support sustainable brands, sign petitions, stay informed, and take action in their daily lives to promote a more sustainable future.
