As the global specialist in energy management, Schneider Electric’s business itself helps sustainability. Its sustainability approach relies on three fundamentals – employee engagement, starting from the top where 15% of its executive committee members have their bonuses based on CSR components; the company’s Planet & Society Barometer, which sums up its main sustainability priorities; and, eventually, having the firm’s commitments recognized, especially through inclusion on the world’s ethical stock indexes.
Schneider Electric’s world headquarters was the first building in France to earn triple certification from NF EN 16001, ISO 14001 and HQE Exploitation standards for building operating performance. To respond to the global challenges of energy management, the company’s research, development and innovation program is centered on designing energy efficiency solutions tailored to each market (buildings, residential, industry and data centers), and on improving the way in which customer requirements are met in terms of interoperability, ergonomics, safe operation and respect for the environment.
EcoStruxure is a separate Group-wide R&D program that takes a holistic approach across many of the company’s fields of activity to meet customer requirements for solutions that combine optimum energy efficiency with lower investment and operating costs.
