Schneider Electric's Sustainable development approach
Schneider Electric's commitment can be summed up in one phrase:
"Sustainable development is good for Schneider Electric and Schneider Electric is good for Sustainable development".
Indeed, in a world where energy efficiency has become a major problem, for Schneider Electric the principles of sustainable development represent a tremendous opportunity for growth and differentiation.
By helping its customers to respect the environment more, Schneider Electric is positionning itself on new markets (energy efficiency, building automation and backup power supply), all of which will drive growth in the coming years.
A key concept of sustainable development, responsibility is at the heart of Schneider Electric's culture and strategy. It is because it behaves in a responsible way that the company can take on the social, economic and environmental challenges that lie ahead.
Schneider Electric created the Planet & Society Barometer in 2005 to measure its corporate social responsibility performance. With criteria covering people, environment, community and governance issues, the Barometer expresses our commitment to promoting sustainable development.
