Schneider Electric, a leader in the digital transformation of energy management and automation, announced on July 28 2022 the results of its sustainable impact program for the second quarter of 2022.
Schneider’s Sustainability Impact (SSI) scored 4.17 out of ten, relative to its 4.70 year-end target. The SSI dashboard measures the company’s Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) performance. It details the progress made on each of the company’s global and local sustainability goals relative to longterm commitments on climate, resources, trust, equal opportunities, generations, and local communities.
The publication of Schneider’s latest SSI scores coincides with Earth Overshoot Day, the date at which more of the Earth’s resources have been consumed than can be replenished. As Earth Overshoot Day in 2022 has occurred one day earlier than last year, it serves as a stark reminder of the need to urgently address humanity’s adverse impact on the planet. “Our planet is burning, literally. We have to face the reality in front of us and keep accelerating our sustainability efforts,” said Gwenaelle Avice-Huet, Schneider Electric’s chief strategy and sustainability officer. “As an Impact company, we are convinced that we can help each other with technology, collaboration, and trust. Advancing on our Sustainability Impact program is not about ESG compliance. It’s about embarking and working with our entire ecosystem of employees, clients, suppliers, and partners to progress together.”
