Energising Social Change

Schneider Electric Foundation

Schneider Electric is a global leader in providing energy and automation digital solutions for efficiency and sustainability.

Through a partnership developed in 2018, the Brotherhood of St Laurence and Schneider Electric have been working on specific projects together designed to address fuel poverty for those most in need and assist the Brotherhood on our journey to become carbon neutral.

Schneider Electric’s specialist Energy and Sustainability Services (ESS) team are currently undertaking a review of the Brotherhood’s energy bills across our 68 sites. This is the first stage of a project to reduce the Brotherhood’s energy consumption, energy bills and overall carbon output.

Another upcoming collaborative project will assist low-income renters to access more affordable, sustainable energy and reduce fuel poverty in Victoria. Tam Johnston, Schneider Electric Foundation and Community Lead, says the partnership with the Brotherhood aligns with many of the values of the company. “We have a shared commitment to the idea that people should be able to access the energy they need to thrive. We believe that access to energy is a human right, and we support the Brotherhood because we believe in the program of work in energy equity.”

The Brotherhood of St Laurence is proud to partner with Schneider Electric Foundation and is excited to continue to work together to energize social change for all Australians.
