Schneider Electric is conscious of the energy sector's impact on carbon emissions and emphasises the importance of embracing Electricity 4.0 as a key driver for a sustainable, efficient and resilient future that benefits both people and the planet. Electricity 4.0 is a fundamental element because it represents the evolution towards a new, more electric and digital world, the manufacturer explained.
"Electricity 4.0 involves the digitalisation of energy through technology, ranging from the use of smart machines, driven by the Industrial Internet of Things (IoT), through cloud computing networks, to Artificial Intelligence, supported by smart devices, applications, analytics and software. Thanks to this, energy becomes visible, connected, intelligent and controlled," said Jesús Carmona, president and CEO of Schneider Electric Mexico and Central America, on the occasion of International Mother Earth Day.

In the real estate sector, there are a set of parameters that measure the efficiency of resource use, energy savings and even comfort and healthy conditions for users. By complying with the established standards, buildings can achieve certifications, among the most recognised of which are LEED and well.
In Mexico, there are currently close to 2,000 LEED-certified commercial buildings, representing 32.5 million square metres of gross rentable area. These sustainable buildings bring economic benefits to the areas where they are constructed, as they improve their added value and their habitability by a large proportion.
As part of World Earth Day (22 April), ITALIKA celebrates the planet by promoting the transition to the electric motorbike, an effective and efficient means of transport that will revolutionise our journeys for the benefit of the planet and the sustainable development of future generations.
According to the company, Mexico has a vehicle fleet of more than 40 million cars, so using an electric vehicle that generates zero emissions is a fundamental step in our travel habits, which points in the right direction towards a sustainable future.
Along these lines, Mercado Libre, the leading e-commerce company in Mexico and Latin America, has recently added 150 electric vans to its fleet in Mexico. The company is aware that it has a key role to play in the transformation of the logistics industry and that we must be increasingly responsible for understanding our environmental footprint as we grow in order to reduce it.
