Local social and environmental action propels Schneider Electric Sustainability Impact Program toward year-end target

Schneider Electric, a leader in the digital transformation of energy management and automation, published details of its quarterly sustainability impact performance alongside its third-quarter financial results. 

Schneider Sustainability Impact (SSI) 2021-2025 program drives and measures company-wide progress towards 11 global sustainability targets, supplemented by locally-led initiatives, which collectively support Schneider Electric’s six long-term Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) commitments. At the end of the third quarter of 2023, the SSI score came in at 5.76, on track to reach the 2023 end-year target of 6 out of 10.

Local highlights during the quarter include:

  • Solar power solutions installed at a children’s clinic in Kenya gave 20,000 people access to clean electricity and improved the quality of life of the local community.
  • In collaboration with Enactus in Mexico, 60,000 students from over 400 universities and colleges engaged in training initiatives to drive social impact in local communities. As a result, Schneider Electric has now crossed the halfway mark in its goal of training 1 million people by 2025.
  • Schneider Electric and the Gaia Energy Impact Fund II raised €40 million to support renewable energy projects in Africa. This impact investment partnership funds startups and entrepreneurial projects with a strong environmental and social focus.
  • Schneider Electric’s unique contribution to Barcelona’s district cooling project was rewarded with the Best Energy Innovation Award from El Periódico de la Energía.

Additionally this quarter, Schneider Electric received several prestigious global recognitions for its diversity and inclusion policies as well as three global awards for sustainable procurement, upstream decarbonisation and people development practices from the Chartered Institute of Procurement and Supply (CIPS).

Schneider Sustainability Impact performance feeds into its short and long-term incentive plans, underscoring the company’s commitment to sustainable performance. More details on this quarter’s results are available in the SSI Q3 2023 report.

Health Workers Call for Renewable Future, criticise Coal Bailouts

Healthy Futures is deeply disappointed at today's announcement that NSW Premier Chris Minns is extending the life of Australia's largest coal-fired power station. Last year, Healthy Futures on behalf of a number of peak health organisations in NSW, wrote to the NSW Government urgently asking for the replacement of fossil fuel based energy with renewable energy as fast as possible, and not to extend Eraring’s operations. The news that Eraring will continue to operate past its planned closure date, with public money, comes just weeks after G7 nations announced a historic and much needed commitment to phasing out coal power…

Parents for Climate

Eraring extension risks higher power bills and kids’ health

May 23, 2024 Parents for Climate is appalled by the NSW Government’s decision to back coal instead of clean energy by extending the life of Australia’s largest coal-fired power station, Eraring, near Newcastle. Nic Seton, CEO for Parents for Climate said: “This go-slow decision on climate action undermines investment in clean energy and increases dangerous climate pollution that is harming NSW families now. Families struggling with bills want to see governments invest in long-term solutions that lower electricity bills, not expensive delays to our clean energy transition. “We know that clean energy is the best way to reduce power bills…
