“The age of fire is over. Now it’s time for the digital age.”
So says Jean-Pascal Tricoire, CEO of energy and automation firm Schneider Electric, which this week was announced on the Global 100 index as the world’s most sustainable company. Schneider develops systems that manage electricity for businesses and industry, in recent years working with corporations such as Walmart WMT +1.3%, Marriott and Deloitte to improve the energy efficiency of their properties.
Tricoire, who has helmed Schneider since 2006, claims it is companies such as his that will be key to delivering on net zero emissions targets. And, keen to be seen to walk the walk, the firm has committed to accelerating its goal to achieve carbon neutrality by five years, from 2030 to 2025. Investors, for their part, seem convinced: Schneider has seen its share price double over the past two years, and rise inexorably despite the crippling coronavirus pandemic.
