Schneider Electric, Microplásticos Work on Decarbonizing Supply Chain

Today, Schneider Electric and dependable partner Microplásticos announced joint initiatives to quicken the decarbonization process. A Portuguese and Polish plastics manufacturer named Microplásticos has publicly stated that by 2023, they will have cut their absolute Scope 1 and 2 GHG emissions by 88% and will be 100% powered by renewable energy. By 2030, they hope to be Net-Zero.

Schneider Electric also started “The Zero Carbon Project” to work with its top 1,000 suppliers to cut their CO2 emissions in half by 2025. Microplásticos is a supplier to Schneider Electric and has shown a strong commitment to decarbonization. The two companies are working together to develop Schneider Electric’s carbon strategy and roadmap.


“It is imperative to comprehend that the transition to carbon neutrality is no longer a choice in today’s complex world. According to Frederico Pais, CEO of Microplasticos, businesses who invest in net-zero will increase their profits by cutting expenses, retaining the best employees, and being more accessible to potential new clients. Working with Schneider Electric was essential for Microplásticos since they assisted us with both the strategy and the implementation gap. As a result of our activities to improve stakeholder participation, it will become a part of our culture.

By committing to using renewable energy and becoming Net-Zero in Scope 1 and 2 by 2030, Microplasticos is taking a significant step toward assuming a leading position in sustainability, according to a statement.

Microplásticos aims to have 100% renewable electricity starting in 2023, and in order to support their decarbonization efforts, they intend to eliminate mobile emissions (Scope 1) by 2026.
