4 Important Lessons On The Need For Change In Achieving Digital Transformation
Schneider Electric was founded more than 180 years ago, and during that period we made many changes in our field, so we started with iron and steel and now we offer digital solutions for energy and automation to achieve efficiency and sustainability, and we have learned many lessons during our path that was broken by many successful changes.
I had the opportunity to participate in a global podcast conversation with Omar Abboush, CEO of Accenture of Accenture Communications, Media and Technology Group as well as will.i.am the musician and philanthropist and technical investor, and I would like to share a deeper insight into what it means to make a wise decision to change Your path towards efficiency and sustainability based on the four lessons Schneider has learned.
Focus on one goal, to be clear and consistent
You need to know your destination before embarking on the journey, and sustainability is the essence of what we do at Schneider Electric Company. Everywhere and time, we consider with our approach that combating climate change caused by carbon emissions is one of our most important duties as a company, and when it comes to this issue, I am neither pessimistic nor optimistic: but effective.
This daily approach aims to build a path that enables us to fulfill our commitment to becoming carbon neutral by 2030, and the huge opportunity before us is to turn everything into electrical work worldwide, and facilities that use electricity as the primary source of energy are expected to double by 2040. Meanwhile, BNEF expects two-thirds of the energy to come from renewables.
This development between centralized energy systems and decentralization and linking energy and digitization will lead to more opportunities for real efficiency and sustainability, as buildings in the past year become smarter thanks to IoT technology and electricity, and industries become less energy-consuming, cities and data centers more efficient, so Let us cooperate and walk hand in hand, leaders, employees and partners, and move forward in enabling life, progress and sustainability for all.
Innovation and advanced technologies are essential
There are two types of changes in the work: the changes that you are the pioneers and get back to the company with benefit, and the changes that you have to face and support as restrictions, and they are usually difficult and undesirable, and you should expect the two types to happen and be innovative to be leaders of the wave of change forward, so we innovate and introduce advanced technologies to become The world is more sustainable. We work to reduce energy costs and make them more sustainable, as well as developing processes to be more efficient in order to reduce the impact of human activity on natural resources.
