Schneider Electric recognized as a Corporate Sustainability Leader

 January 24, 2022

Working for a sustainability-focused company can be very rewarding.

Schneider Electric ranks on Canadian media and research company Corporate Knights’ annual Global 100 list of most sustainable corporations for the 11th time. 

Corporate Knights examines over 6,900 companies worldwide every year to determine the top 1% most sustainable corporations. The Global 100 methodology is based on 23 key performance indicators, with 50% of the weight of scores assigned to a company’s share of Clean Revenues and Investment.

According to Corporate Knights, Global 100 most sustainable companies outperform by generating more than four times as much revenue per tonne of carbon emitted than the average company in MSCI All Country World Index. 

Sustainable transformation 

Schneider Electric has featured on the Corporate Knights’ Global 100 every year since 2012, making it to the top spot in 2021, and fourth in 2022 - with its performance due to Schneider Electric's integration of sustainability into its business strategy.

In 2021, Schneider Electric reinforced its sustainability consulting business to support more partners and customers in their own sustainable transformation. 

“There is no magic formula to being repeatedly listed as a most sustainable company, it’s about doing well and doing good,” comments Olivier Blum, Chief Strategy & Sustainability Officer of Schneider Electric. 

“As an impact company, we embrace sustainability as a business opportunity and an opportunity for all. It’s part of our model, culture, strategy, and the way we embark our entire ecosystem of employees, supply chain partners and customers, in delivering on our purpose day-in, day-out.” 

Environmental performance 

Schneider Electric received global recognition from four Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) ratings in 2021 including the CDP Climate Change A list and Dow Jones Sustainability World Index.
