Schneider Electric joins hands with the Urban Environment Institute of the Chinese Academy of Sciences to jointly build a green and low-carbon design innovation center
Today, the signing ceremony between Schneider Electric and the Institute of Urban Environment, Chinese Academy of Sciences was held at the site of Schneider Electric’s tenth anniversary of R&D in Xi’an. The two parties announced that they will jointly build a green and low-carbon design innovation center, and carry out “production-research” cooperation in the fields of “green standards, ecological design”, etc., to provide assistance to promote the development of green and low-carbon innovation in the industry and the construction of a standardization system for green design products, and then Help accelerate the implementation of carbon neutrality goals.
Schneider Electric and the Institute of Urban Environment, Chinese Academy of Sciences have reached a strategic cooperation
Green design is an effective way to achieve sustainable development. The “14th Five-Year Plan for Industrial Green Development” clearly states that it is necessary to strengthen the concept of the whole life cycle and promote the green design of industrial products in an all-round and whole process. Schneider Electric aims to start from the source through green design, on the basis of ensuring product environmental protection compliance and environmental information transparency, and systematically consider the energy saving, low carbon, resource recycling and environmental friendliness of products to create a green life cycle. low carbon products.
This time, Schneider Electric and the Institute of Urban Environment of the Chinese Academy of Sciences have joined forces to focus on green and low-carbon design, and will focus on improving product environmental evaluation and ecological design systems, incubating product ecological design innovation technologies, and building product green and low-carbon evaluation and design platforms. Cooperate in four aspects of compiling product green evaluation and ecological design teaching materials, and promote the implementation of the double carbon goal with more practical green innovation.
As a national research institution specializing in comprehensive research on urban environment, the Institute of Urban Environment of the Chinese Academy of Sciences has research interests in ecological health and environmental safety, urban environmental pollution control and resource utilization technology, urban environmental engineering and circular economy, urban ecological environment planning and management, and industrial Green and low-carbon development and other fields have forward-looking and high-level academic research capabilities, which has laid a solid technical foundation for the cooperation between the two parties. In this cooperation, the professional industrial ecology research team of the Institute of Urban Environment, Chinese Academy of Sciences will connect with Schneider Electric’s existing green innovation achievements and industry application scenarios, effectively promote the organic integration of scientific research and enterprise production practice, and promote green design innovation The transformation of results has landed.
Zheng Yuming, deputy director of the Institute of Urban Environment, Chinese Academy of Sciences, said: “With the continuous advancement of the ‘dual carbon’ strategy, my country urgently needs to establish a green and low-carbon technology standardization system, and high-quality production-research cooperation, resource sharing, and synergy complementarity are accelerating A powerful way to achieve this goal. For a long time, we and Schneider Electric have been committed to green design and low-carbon R&D innovation. I believe that with the in-depth progress of the project, the two parties will usher in a broader space for cooperation and contribute to the field of green science and technology innovation. make more outstanding contributions.”
As a long-term practitioner and enabler of sustainable development, Schneider Electric has always emphasized the innovative concept of carbon reduction throughout the life cycle, and injected green genes into its entire life cycle during the product design and planning stage. Especially since 2019, the global green energy-saving design center settled in Xi’an, which has greatly improved Schneider Electric’s sustainable development ability starting from green design. This collaboration with the Institute of Urban Environment, Chinese Academy of Sciences will make Schneider Electric a further step in the field of green design.
Gao Shen, Vice President of R&D of Schneider Electric China Energy Management Low Voltage Division and President of China Research Institute, delivered a speech
At the signing ceremony, Gao Shen, Vice President of R&D of Schneider Electric China Energy Management Low Voltage Business Unit and President of China Research Institute, expressed his expectations for this cooperation. He emphasized: “This time, together with the Chinese Academy of Sciences, Schneider Electric will make innovations based on the existing green design. The achievements and rich industry application scenarios will further strengthen the effective interaction between ecological design standardization and technological innovation, and accelerate the improvement of the green design system and the implementation of green design innovation achievements.”
Under the current trend of digitization and low carbonization, Schneider Electric’s R&D innovation is constantly transformed and upgraded, and it has continued to make efforts in the two major innovation directions of “digitalization” and “green”, and continues to output more and more green and low-carbon products and solutions. . In the future, Schneider Electric will continue to increase green innovation, continuously strengthen production and research cooperation, and join hands with industry partners to achieve a sustainable future.
