This year, on September 25th, it is the GLOBAL DAY OF ACTION where we’ll mark the 3rd anniversary of the adoption of the SDGs - Sustainable Development Goals.
We track our sustainability commitments and goals through the Schneider Sustainability Impact. It shows our commitments translated into 21 goals to be achieved by 2020, but also our contribution to 10 out of 17 Sustainable Development Goals defined by United Nations.
The Schneider Sustainability Impact (SSI) mobilizes our stakeholders around sustainable development objectives while sharing our plans and progress. Since 2005, we have published this dashboard each quarter along with our financial results.
Gilles Vermot Desroches, Chief Sustainability Officer at Schneider Electric, commented: "We are very proud to see Schneider Electric Chairman & CEO appointed to the Board of the United Nations Global Compact. As a Group, we strive to promote human rights and international labour standards, to protect the environment and to fight against corruption, while constantly working for the adoption of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by all members. This appointment also reflects Schneider Electric's lasting commitment to Sustainable Development – a commitment that takes concrete shape through our Schneider Sustainability Impact 2018-2020 indicators. At the end of July 2018, the Group had exceeded its target score of 4 out of 10 with an overall score of 4.55, another excellent performance that confirms that the Schneider Sustainability Impact is firmly on track."
