A leading specialist in energy management and automation, Schneider Electric has appeared for the fourth time on the ‘Global 100 Most Sustainable Corporations’ index, ranking 12th overall and first in its GICS industry.
“With an overall score up to 70.5 percent in 2016 from 68.4 percent in 2015, we have achieved our best Global 100 score ever, ranking first in our sector and demonstrating our commitment to put sustainable development at the heart of our strategy,” said Jean-Pascal Tricoire, chairman and CEO of Schneider Electric.
Released annually at the World Economic Forum in Davos, the sustainability index is maintained by Corporate Knights, a Toronto-based media and investment advisory company. Corporations named to the Global 100 are among the top overall sustainability performers in their respective industries, selected from a pool of more than 4,300 listed companies with a market capitalisation higher than US$2 billion. Unfortunately, no NZ-based companies made the cut this year.
