MISSISSAUGA, ON, Oct. 25, 2019 /CNW/ - For the fifth year, Schneider Electric, the leader in digital transformation of energy management and automation, announces its financial and non-financial results together for the third quarter of 2019. Each quarter, Schneider Electric publishes 21 indicators from the Schneider Sustainability Impact, measuring progress towards its ambitious sustainability commitments for 2018 to 2020, in line with its COP 21 commitments and United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. With a total score of 7.08 out of 10 in Q3 2019, the Group reached the Schneider Sustainability Impact target of 7 out of 10 for the end of 2019, a quarter in advance.
Gilles Vermot Desroches, Sustainability Senior VP at Schneider Electric, commented: "This quarter, Schneider Electric has significantly stepped up its commitments towards the United nations Sustainable Development Goals. First by joining the Business for Inclusive Growth coalition with 33 other companies to lead the way in tackling inequality and promoting diversity in the workplace and supply chain. Then by presenting robust climate commitments at Climate Week in New York, along with 86 other companies of the Business for 1.5°C ambition initiative, to achieve carbon neutrality in its ecosystem in the short term, and decarbonization of its operations and supply chain in the mid and long term. Schneider Electric will leverage its EcostruxureTM solutions to deliver its own targets and help more customers save CO2 emissions. Since the launch of Schneider Sustainability Impact, it already helped customers save 88 million tons CO2. With new Access to Energy offers, the Group will also keep helping millions of people in emerging countries meet basic energy needs."
