2030 United Nations Agenda for Sustainable Development
The 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals are focused on protecting the planet, alleviating poverty, and achieving worldwide peace and justice. The Schneider Sustainability Impact and Essentials are transformation tools, aligned to all SDGs. They promote rapid, disruptive changes to heighten our sustainability performance, and uphold industry leadership in corporate social responsibility.
Schneider Electric operates with the conviction that human well-being comes first. Therefore, we believe that decent wage and development opportunities enable employees within the company and communities around it to live a fulfilling life and thrive.
We place human health and well-being at the core of our actions. Food is a basic need and a necessity for livelihood. Underserved populations are at the margin of society, and we know we all have a part to play to protect their livelihood.
Our commitment to prioritising people everywhere orients us to view well-being holistically – as physical, mental, social, and emotional — and to develop programmes that support all our stakeholders to manage their unique life and work.
Sustainability goals go beyond creating a greener world. Learning never stops, and we actively promote a learning and teaching culture by connecting tomorrow’s energy leaders with the education, support, and opportunities they deserve.
Schneider Electric believes in equality between all genders. As such, the long-lasting difference in society’s treatment of men and women is a challenge we face and rise to as we believe that diversity, equity, and inclusion fosters sustainable development.
Schneider Electric is certain that sustainability requires decent work and opportunities to allow a prosperous development for all its stakeholders. It is our commitment to trust, equality, and opportunities for all generations, that drives us.
Schneider Electric’s identity and legacy drive the company towards perpetual innovation and mobilisation to make its infrastructures and products modern and up to date with its commitment to sustainability.
We are devoted to empowering and positively impacting all employees, customers, and communities. We hope to bring everyone together on the same level of equality, thus allowing everyone to strive individually and collectively.
We offer sustainable solutions in urban areas with smarter homes and buildings. We also act for communities by giving them access to sustainable energy and by transforming our global commitments into local realities.
At Schneider Electric, we believe that circularity is the key to for sustainability. In fact, using fewer resources and producing higher quality products is the ideal combination to ensure safety for employees, consumers, and the environment.
As we strive to be an impactful company, our climate strategy addresses all our stakeholders, from employees to supply chain partners, customers, as well as local communities, and shows there are ways for companies to “do good while doing well”.
Resources are essential to our business; preserving them does not only make good business sense but is also the right thing to do. Our “one planet compatibility” mindset, drives our actions to protect marine life.
Schneider Electric is committed to using fewer natural resources, living within our planet's means, and advancing our biodiversity strategy. We align with like-minded partners to prioritise conservation and help create a more sustainable world.
Sustainability is a job for all; the urgency of the situation is impossible to ignore. All hands must be on deck and it is crucial to establish frameworks, programmes, and infrastructure, thus allowing a just and peaceful development.
