Schneider Electric on Global 100 Most Sustainable Corporations list

September 2023 News

Schneider Electric has earned a spot on Corporate Knights’ 2023 Global 100 list of Most Sustainable Corporations in the world, for the 12th time in a row. Strong performance across climate and social commitments, such as sustainable revenues and investments, gender diversity, and sustainability pay link have helped secure this position in this annual index compiled by the Corporate Knights sustainability research group. The Global 100 is based on a rigorous assessment of public companies with revenues over $1 billion. Schneider Electric is the only one in its category to have been named a Global 100 every year since 2012, and was ranked as the world’s most sustainable corporation by Corporate Knights in 2021.

This achievement follows top Environmental Societal and Governance (ESG) ratings from Standard & Poors, CDP and Moodys ESG Solutions for its sustainability impacts and best practices. Its climate strategy and its commitment to environmental transparency were one of the first to be validated in accordance with SBTi’s Corporate Net-Zero Standard in mid-2022. Schneider Electric is also just one of 19 corporate recipients of this year’s Terra Carta Seal recognising global companies that are driving innovation, demonstrating commitment, and gaining momentum towards genuinely sustainable markets.

“Kickstarting 2023 with these sustainability achievements is truly energising,” said Gwenaelle Avice-Huet, chief strategy & sustainability officer at Schneider Electric. “It shows that consistency and commitment don’t go unnoticed, and that we can make a difference at all levels, in business and through our environmental, social and economic impacts.”
