“The economic, political and social climates today are putting a strain on our society’s ability to make preventing climate change a priority,” said Aaron Davis, Chief Marketing Officer, Schneider Electric. “Efficiency isn’t just for the eco-friendly crowd anymore. There are tangible benefits of an efficiency economy for cities, businesses and citizens of all types.
