Chicago, April 17, 2024S&C Electric Company, a leading innovator of resilient grid technology, demonstrated its strong commitment to sustainability and its core principle of responsible stewardship with a volunteer effort at the Edithvale-Seaford Wetlands near Melbourne, Australia.

In early March, team members from the company’s Asia Pacific office spread eight truckloads of mulch over roughly 600 square meters. This effort aims to improve the habitat for native plants and animals in the region’s largest and most biologically diverse wetlands area, which was designated a Wetland of International Importance under the Ramsar Convention. S&C also made a financial donation to support the preservation of these wetlands.

“For more than a century, S&C’s core values and guiding principles of commitment to excellence, personal integrity, respect for people, and responsible stewardship have steered us forward. Today, those same values inspire our sustainability strategy and motivate us to solve some of the biggest issues facing our planet today – from climate-change-driven extreme weather and its impact on the electric grid to supporting the global transition to clean energy,” said Anders Sjoelin, President and CEO of S&C. “Our team members share in this commitment. I thank them for embodying good stewardship by volunteering their time, effort, and talents to improve their local communities. I believe the little things we can do locally can have a big impact globally.”

Continuing its global sustainability strategy, S&C reaffirmed its commitment to removing greenhouse gas emissions, decarbonizing its manufacturing processes, and supporting its 99% Landfill-Free Initiative. S&C’s manufacturing processes have been 100% powered by renewable sources globally since 2020.
