In the contemporary world, there are millions of people in abject fuel poverty. Shortly, Square D aims to foster the provision of uninterrupted energy to these millions of people that have little or no energy supply. It will facilitate the development and growth of society through vocational training and education in energy-related fields.

Through the various educational, awareness and training programs, Square D has been able to come up with different strategies for developing less privileged people. One of the ways is the establishment of Schneider Electric Foundation; that was founded in 2012. It has employed teachers who provide teaching and professional courses mostly to the underprivileged youth. Some of the teachers are the voluntarily retired employees of Schneider Electric Company.

The company has also associated itself with initiatives that fight energy poverty in different economies. It operates on a bush fire principle whereby a certain group of trainees is equipped with knowledge then uses it to serve the society at large. The initiative has relied on three main pillars; creating awareness through partnerships and training, putting their money in solidarity based investments and provision of a dedicated offer to the underprivileged.
