Marking its 20th anniversary, Schneider Electric organised the lecture titled “Sustainability and what remains after us?” at the Technical Faculties of Belgrade premises yesterday. The lecture was held for students of the Faculties of Electrical Engineering, Architecture, Mechanical Engineering and Construction Engineering, as well as for all other students interested in the topic of sustainability in technical solutions. On the occasion, the company also granted an interactive screen to the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, and a day before, a mini solar bench to the Secondary School of Mathematics in Belgrade, for students to charge their phones and have WIFI. After the lecture, a mini fair of solutions was organised at the Technical Faculties premises.
Today, after 20 years of operation, Schneider Electric in Serbia gathers more than 100 local businesses in a partner network that will continue to expand. The company is focused on software, primarily solutions contributing to energy efficiency in building management, as well as for industrial applications, all in the aim of maximising profitability, reducing risk and increasing sustainability.
Furthermore, an important segment of the company is Schneider Electric Hub in Novi Sad, where more than 900 experts work on developing and delivering software for power and gas distribution. As of this year, they will also work on new businesses and software in the energy area.
“Last year and in the years before that, together with Hub in Novi Sad, we invested in know-how and young talent, students of technical faculties, through various trainings, scholarships and mentorship programs. We developed collaboration with technical faculties in nearly all university centres, enabling the best transfer of knowledge. We are recognised as a competence centre and, over the years, we have also focused on educating younger generations via the Schneider Young Talent Foundation, and we will continue with those efforts in the future as well,” said Ksenija Karić, General Manager of Schneider Electric Serbia and Montenegro. According to her, the company’s growth is not possible without employee growth and development, and Schneider Electric will therefore continue to invest in its employees, as it firmly believes that people are generators of positive change and leaders of progress.
The company is marking its 20th anniversary milestone by continuing to maintain good relations with the local community, as confirmed by last year’s CSR Company of the Year Award of Serbian Association of Managers and the latest Virtus Philanthropy Award of the Trag Foundation. The company will continue to invest in and develop green solutions in the coming years, while strategically focusing its operation on sustainability and mitigation of negative consequences of global warming.
