LIGHT IT UP EAST ASIA & JAPAN 2017/2018

At Schneider Electric, we consider access to energy as a basic human right. We want everyone on our planet to have access to reliable, safe, efficient, and sustainable energy. Today nearly 1.1 billion people — almost 1 of every 5 persons on the planet — lack access to modern energy..

Light it Up East Asia& Japan is an annual initiative that started 3 years ago. This initiative aims at bringing access to lighting and communication to vulnerable communities across the East Asia & Japan region.

From December 2017 to April 2018, Schneider Electric local entities and their partners will distribute more than 1500 units* of Mobiya solar lamps to local communities in Cambodia, Indonesia, Japan, Myanmar, Thailand and Vietnam. In each country, Schneider Electric has selected a local non-profit to collaborate with in order to ensure the sustainability of the actions.

SUCCESS STORIES FROM LIGHT IT UP 2016

In December 2016, as part of the Light it Up Campaign, Schneider Electric Vietnam donated 162 Mobiya solar lamps to GREEN ID, a local NGO.

GREEN ID used this stock to put in place a social business employing local women and allowing 150 families to receive the lamps in exchange of a small monthly fee that they commit to pay for 6 months.With these fees, GREEN ID has been able to reorder 150 new lamps and distributed them to 150 new beneficiaries, ensuring the sustainability of the project.
