Now more than ever, it is crucial for companies to rethink who they are and what they do to ensure future resilience,” stated Ireen Catane, Schneider Electric Philippines Country President. “Staying competitive in today’s business environment and creating a more sustainable world involves going all-in on digitization, and rethinking the way we operate and do business. However, the good news is that everything companies need to accelerate their transition to digital and electric energy is available right now.”
