VIDEO | A Chapter Closed for Schneider Electric’s 2015-2017 Planet & Society Barometer
Every three years, Schneider Electric defines a new indicator to measure its sustainability achievements that form part of the Group’s non-financial results. The sustainability indicators are presented together with the Group’s financial information: by the CEO at the annual and half-year results, and by the CFO at the first and third quarter results. This integrated communication demonstrates Schneider Electric commitment to making sustainability part of the company’s long-term strategy.
Since 2005, Schneider Electric has been measuring its sustainable development progress with the Planet & Society Barometer. This year they closed the 2015 – 2017 period with a record result for the Barometer. The company achieved 9.58/10, above the target of 9/10 — an unrivaled performance since the launch of the Barometer in 2005.
Now reimagined for 2018 – 2020 as the Schneider Sustainability Impact, the new indicator of the company reflects their holistic view of sustainability with ambitious targets such as being powered by 80% renewable electricity, having 200 sites labeled toward zero waste to landfill, reaching 1 medical incident per million hours worked, or training 350,000 underprivileged people in energy management. The new Schneider Sustainability Works Index has other more ambitious goals that will continue to help Schneider and their customers alike to be more sustainable in every aspect of their activity.
