Schneider Electric, the leader in the digital transformation of energy management and automation, organized a marathon at HydeOut in celebration of Earth Day. The event, under the auspices of the Ministry of Youth and Sports, saw over 1,000 participants of all ages and family members coming together to champion sustainability, emphasize the crucial need for environmental protection and counteract pollution.

The carefully curated agenda of the event focused on the significance of individual actions and practices in preserving the environment and its resources, including plastic recycling, group transportation, walking as an alternative mode of commute, zero food waste, sustainable fashion, and the conservation of natural resources such as water and electricity for both current and future generations.

In addition to the marathon, a diverse array of activities was arranged, featuring a bazaar for local brands, engaging competitions and various fun games. The day concluded with a special celebration in the presence of supporting partners, such as Cairo Runners, Hyde Park Developments, The Egyptian Food Bank, The Egyptian Clothing Bank, The Egyptian Carbon Center, Meyyah Company, E7kky Foundation, Verynile initiative, among others.

The Earth Day marathon underscores Schneider Electric’s commitment to sustainability, evident not only in its internal operational standards and energy management solutions across diverse sectors but also in its broader impact on the community. At the forefront of integrating sustainability into its corporate culture and strategy, Schneider Electric identified six long-term sustainability commitments that include equal, trust, climate, resources, local and generations, with each event partner reflecting the essence of one of these commitments.

Through initiatives such as renewable energy projects, resource efficiency measures, and environmental advocacy efforts, Schneider Electric actively contributes to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), championing the cause of environmental protection. The Earth Day Run stands as a testament to the company’s unwavering dedication to promoting sustainability awareness, fostering positive environmental impacts, and inspiring individuals to embrace sustainable living practices in order to safeguard the planet for future generations.
