A truly prestigious accolade

Fortune's annual ranking of the World's Most Admired Companies is based on a survey of U.S. and global Fortune 500 companies posting the highest revenues in their respective industries.

To identify the top performers in 52 industries, 3,750 executives, directors and analysts in those industries were asked to rate companies on nine criteria: innovation, people management, use of corporate assets, social responsibility, quality of management, financial soundness, long-term investment value, quality of products and services, and global competitiveness.

Schneider Electric was highly evaluated in the people management criteria, ranking number 3 in the electronics industry.

At Schneider Electric, our meaningful purpose is the common thread that motivates us – we want to bring energy and efficiency to enable life, progress and sustainability for all.
