Schneider Electric joins ETIM International as fifth Global Industry Member

We are pleased to announce that Schneider Electric has joined ETIM International as a Global Industry Member. Schneider Electric is a global leader in the digital transformation of energy management and industrial automation. Operating in over 115 countries, Schneider Electric has a global presence and currently employs over 128,000 people worldwide.

Schneider Electric empowers all to make the most of their energy and resources, ensuring Life is On everywhere, for everyone, at every moment. They provide energy and automation digital solutions for efficiency and sustainability.

The recently introduced ETIM International Global Industry Membership is open to manufacturers, wholesalers, buying groups and contractors that are already members of at least five different national ETIM organizations.

As a Global Industry Member, Schneider Electric has direct access to and participates in the ETIM Standardization Committee and expert groups – alongside national ETIM organisations. As such, the membership not only allows for a consistent and efficient alignment of corporate requirements, but also for optimal technical expert input of globally active companies to further develop, enhance and maintain the ETIM classification model.

Dominique Erramoun, Offer Data Governance Manager in charge of ETIM at Schneider Electric, says: “ETIM is a key standard in our business, managed at different levels in our organization, in the countries close to our partners, and globally for data governance. This is why this global membership makes sense for us, being a great opportunity to extend our connections to the ETIM community and contribute to make ETIM even more efficient for ourselves, our partners and our end customers.”

This global membership does by no means replace Schneider Electric ’s support to local ETIM organizations, as they will remain an active member of several local ETIM organizations. It will push efficiency to the next level by driving standardization of digital interfaces from regional to global level.

We warmly welcome Schneider Electric to the ETIM International family and hope that other key industry players will follow their example, reinforcing their engagement and commitment in the further development of the global ETIM classification standard.
