Schneider Electric has finalised the acquisition of EcoAct SAS, an international leader in climate consulting and net zero solutions headquartered in Paris, France.
EcoAct’s portfolio of net zero and nature-based products and services, including consulting, climate data tools, and carbon offset project development, will expand and accelerate Schneider Electric’s global Sustainability Business, a leading provider of advisory services in the areas of energy management, energy efficiency, renewable energy and environmental commodity procurement, sustainability and net zero consulting, climate risk, sustainability communications, and reporting & disclosure.
The company’s advisory services support the development of sustainability strategy and target setting through to decarbonisation across scope 1, 2, and 3, enhanced by its AI-led portfolio of digital and data management tools.
Schneider Electric’s president of sustainability business, Steve Wilhite, said companies understand the urgency to act but continue to face complexities when it comes to decarbonisation.
“I’m confident that our combined best-in-class teams will help our clients to accelerate even faster towards their net zero ambitions,” he said.
