Schneider Electric makes steady progress toward 2025 sustainability targets
News & Press releases with 'Sustainability'
We at Schneider act on climate change by working every day to minimize energy and raw material consumption. Our solutions span from buildings to industry, from cities to data centers, to drive efficiency and sustainability for a better world.
Humanity’s demand from nature generally exceeds what Earth’s ecosystems can replenish during an entire year
The good news is that the current trend can be reversed. The business case for one-planet impact is clear: expanding markets fueled by increased customer expectations for transparency and traceability; reducing exposure to shrinking ecological resources with volatile flows and prices; and optimizing chances at securing the long-term value of assets and financing.
Companies that embrace the climate transition increasingly appear as more likely to succeed in the long-term. At Schneider, for example, our 21 sustainability goals are aligned to the U.N.’s Sustainable Development Goals; and five sustainability megatrends: climate, circular economy, health and equity, ethics and development.
The shift of markets to low-CO2 challenges the competitive landscape and triggers disruptive innovation. Energy and resource-efficient companies are more resilient to volatile commodity prices and reduce their exposure to future supply chain risks. A focus on sustainability is also a must to attract talent, especially as millennials grow in the workforce. From increased profitability opportunities to lower risk, and long-term growth – sustainability generates value.
