Prevailing together: a special note on the coronavirus crisis

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Schneider is mobilizing at all levels to ensure the long-term provision of services and equipment for critical infrastructure. Our solutions in vital environments such as hospitals, data centers, utilities, and more help ensure people stay safe and connected during a difficult time. Our purpose has never been more clear than now. 

With responsive action and proactivity, we’re developing and deploying solutions as quickly and widely as possible to mitigate the health, social, and economic difficulties that will arise during and after the crisis. 

As we adjust our operations to make the biggest impacts we can, we do not lose focus on our long-term vision; we’re committed to advancing sustainability for the preservation of the planet and the progress of people everywhere.
