    The race for sustainability

    For the sixth straight year, Schneider Electric proudly sponsored the Marathon de Paris. We’ve made it our goal to reduce the event’s carbon footprint by mitigating its CO2 emissions and eliminating waste whenever we can.

    In 2016, we compensated for 50% of the event’s emissions. This year, we set the target at 85%. But this is not our last word on the topic.

    Next year, we’re planning to make the Marathon de Paris fully carbon neutral.

    Making the race carbon neutral

    To offset the Paris Marathon footprint, we are working closely with the Livelihoods Fund that helps prevent deforestation in the rural areas of Kenya where firewood is the primary energy source.
     
    We are strongly supporting the Fund in providing energy-efficient Hifadhi cookstoves to Kenyan villagers and planting new trees to restore already damaged ecosystems.

    All of this means tons of timber saved and a smaller carbon footprint.

    The Livelihoods Hifadhi project in numbers

    • 50,000 hectares is the area of forest Kenya loses every year
    • 150,000 cookstoves will be sold over 2013–2022
    • $2 is the price of one cookstove
    • 60% is the reduction in wood use, compared to the traditional stove
    • 13,000 tons is the amount of wood the project will save over 10 years
    • 1 million tons of CO₂ is the total offset target of the project
    • Relive last year’s race
