In a prestigious annual list compiled by Corporate Knights, a media and research company focused on corporate sustainability performance, Schneider Electric, the leader in the digital transformation of energy management and automation, has been ranked the world’s most sustainable corporation.
“We are honoured and grateful to be ranked number one by Corporate Knights,” said Jean-Pascal Tricoire, Schneider Electric’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “It is a major encouragement for our teams and partners, and a great recognition of more than 15 years of engagement to make our company and the world greener and more inclusive. Sustainability is a journey that we accomplish with our people, partners, suppliers, customers and communities where we operate. This recognition goes also to all of them.”
The Toronto-based company called out Schneider’s steady shift towards products and services that help customers manage their energy needs more efficiently and safely.
“In recent decades, Schneider has shifted its focus to data centres; storage and other distributed energy resources; and smart solutions that advance electrification, energy efficiency and renewability. It now earns 70% of its revenue from, and directs 73% of its investments toward, sustainable solutions,” says Toby Heaps CEO of Corporate Knights. “Schneider Electric also performs strongly in racial and gender diversity and in resource productivity and safety.”
Schneider Electric was an early adopter of ESG considerations and has dialled up its sustainability commitments repeatedly and ambitiously over the past decade and a half. The latest acceleration of its sustainability strategy, also announced on January 25, involves six long-term commitments and eleven concrete targets, deliverable by 2025. Together, these aim to help Schneider, the businesses and communities it serves and interacts with, to address climate change and social inclusion.
