Schneider Electric, the global leader in the digital transformation of energy management and automation, has once again been listed on the 2021 Carbon Clean 200™ list of publicly-traded companies that are leading the way with solutions for the transition to a clean-energy future.
The list is published annually by Corporate Knights, a Canadian media and research firm, and by As You Sow, a non-profit foundation promoting environmental and social corporate responsibility. The recognition follows Schneider's recent ranking as the World's Most Sustainable Corporation by Corporate Knights in its Global 100 list.
The inclusion on the Carbon Clean 200 list reflects Schneider's long-standing efforts to put sustainability at the forefront of its strategy. Today, 70 per cent of the company's revenues are green – from products or solutions that bring energy, carbon or resource efficiency to its customers, while not generating significant harmful impact to the environment. Schneider aims to raise this to 80 per cent by 2025.
Schneider will continue to deliver innovative solutions to its customers. Key examples include a new technology that removes SF6, a greenhouse gas commonly contained in electrical equipment used to power the grid and industrial electrical installations, from its offers, and the recent creation of its Global Sustainability Business Division, which will aim to provide end-to-end leadership and support to customers as they pursue their own low-carbon transitions. Moreover, as part of its new Schneider Sustainability Impact program, the company aims to save 800 million tons of CO2 for its customers by 2025.
