Schneider Electric makes progress toward 2025 sustainability goals

July 29, 2022

Schneider Electric released the results of its sustainable impact program for the second quarter of 2022.

Schneider’s Sustainability Impact (SSI) scored 4.17 out of ten, relative to its 4.70 year-end target. The SSI dashboard measures Schneider’s environmental, social and governance (ESG) performance. It details the progress made on each of the company’s global and local sustainability goals relative to long-term commitments on climate, resources, trust, equal opportunities, generations and local communities.

"Our planet is burning, literally. We have to face the reality in front of us and keep accelerating our sustainability efforts,", said Gwenaelle Avice-Huet, Schneider Electricity’s chief strategy and sustainability officer. “As an Impact company, we are convinced that we can help each other with technology, collaboration, and trust. Advancing on our Sustainability Impact program is not about ESG compliance. It’s about embarking and working with our entire ecosystem of employees, clients, suppliers, and partners to progress together.”
