The EP100 is a global scheme in which major businesses have pledged to double their energy productivity, while the EV100 initiative is made up of businesses "committed to accelerating the transition to electric vehicles." The initiatives are led by the international non-profit, The Climate Group. In a statement Monday, Schneider Electric"s chairman and CEO Jean-Pascal Tricoire said that prosperity and energy were intertwined.
