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.
