Schneider Electric Renews Commitment to Habitat for Humanity, Bolstering Affordable and Sustainable Housing

ESGSchneider Electric Renews Commitment to Habitat for Humanity, Bolstering Affordable and Sustainable Housing

Schneider Electric has announced the renewal of its long-standing partnership with Habitat for Humanity International. In this partnership, Schneider Electric will provide nearly $800,000 in monetary donations and electrical equipment to assist Habitat families in reducing utility costs and making their homes more affordable, sustainable, and energy-efficient.

This year, Schneider Electric has expanded its donation to include nearly 200 products, such as load centers, electric meters, circuit breakers, and Wiser Energy™ whole home energy system monitors and surge protectors. These donations will support Habitat home construction projects and help homeowners manage their energy usage efficiently and safely. Schneider Electric’s contributions will also support Habitat Strong, a program focused on disaster-resilient building that addresses climate and hazard resilience in construction.

As part of the renewal, Schneider Electric employees will participate in team builds with 30 local Habitat for Humanity affiliates across the U.S., Mexico, and Canada, including Women Build projects. Schneider Electric will also support Habitat’s Jimmy & Rosalynn Carter Work Project in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Since 1992, Schneider Electric has supported Habitat for Humanity by donating electrical equipment and volunteering in home-building projects and disaster recovery efforts. To date, they have donated over $51 million worth of electrical equipment and provided $12.5 million in funding to support affordable housing for Habitat families across North America.
