Schneider Electric placed in Global 100 list of World's Most Sustainable Corporations for 12th time


Schneider Electric, the global leader in digital energy management and automation, has been named to Corporate Knights' 2023 Global 100 list of the World's Most Sustainable Corporations for the 12th time in a row.

Schneider Electric's peer group leadership position in this annual index compiled by the Corporate Knights sustainability research group has been secured by strong performance across climate and social commitments such as sustainable revenues and investments, gender diversity, and sustainability pay link. The Global 100 is based on a rigorous evaluation of public companies with revenues exceeding $1 billion USD. Schneider Electric is the only company in its category to have been named a Global 100 every year since 2012, and in 2021, Corporate Knights named it the world's most sustainable corporation.

This accomplishment comes on the heels of Schneider Electric receiving top Environmental, Societal, and Governance (ESG) ratings from Standard & Poor's, CDP, and Moody's ESG Solutions for its sustainability impacts and best practices. Schneider Electric, for example, was one of the first to validate its Climate Strategy and commitment to environmental transparency in accordance with SBTi's Corporate Net-Zero Standard in mid-2022.

Schneider Electric is also one of 19 corporate recipients of the Terra Carta Seal this year, which recognizes global companies that are driving innovation, demonstrating commitment, and gaining momentum toward truly sustainable markets. The Seal is part of His Majesty King Charles III's Sustainable Markets Initiative, which he established in January 2021 as Prince of Wales to encourage the private sector to take more urgent action on climate change.

“Kickstarting 2023 with these sustainability achievements is truly energizing,” said Gwenaelle Avice-Huet, Chief Strategy & Sustainability Officer at Schneider Electric. "It shows that consistency, commitment and concrete impact don’t go unnoticed and serves as a reminder that companies like us and our Global 100 peers, make a difference at all levels, in business and through our environmental, social and economic impacts.”
