Schneider Electric has been in business since the 19th century. That’s an impressive fact, as well as a solid conversation starter when it comes to what Schneider Electric is still delivering nearly 180 years later.
Part of the Global 500 and a leader in the digital transformations of modernized energy management and automation, Schneider Electric published the details of its quarterly Sustainability Impact Report earlier this morning. Plus, in addition to publishing it every quarter, this report marks Schneider Electric’s halfway point through its environmental, social, and governance (ESG) program spanning 2021 to 2025.
For context, the company’s ESG commitments include:
The first two and a half years of the program were marked by substantial expansion of ESG initiatives that provide access to clean and reliable energy. The markedly steady growth of impact revenues and continued efforts to save and avoid millions of tons of CO2 emissions has also contributed to Schneider Electric’s progress.
Additional key Q2 ESG highlights and achievements include:
“Our sustainability impact initiatives are transformative, not-quick wins. While some require longer to ramp up, we expect them to deliver significant results in the second half of the program," said Gwenaelle Avice-Huet, Schneider Electric's Chief Strategy & Sustainability Officer. "With only two and a half years left to reach our climate and social ambitions, we need to stay focused and mobilized to live up to our impact company principles: doing well to do good, and vice versa, and bringing everyone along on this journey too.”
And it seems Schneider Electric will do precisely that, given the company’s belief that access to energy and digital innovations is a basic human right.
“Our generation is facing a tectonic shift in energy transition and industrial revolution catalyzed by a more electric world,” another Schneider Electric representative said. “So, by combining the best vectors for decarbonization with our circular economy approach solutions, we work hard to achieve climate-positive impacts and integrate sustainable, future-proofed opportunities for every business we can.”
