    Gilles Vermot Desroches, Sustainability Senior VP at Schneider Electric, comments: “All barometers’ indicators show a satisfactory evolution. The progress achieved with the “toward zero waste to landfill” objective reflects our ability to quickly take on new challenges in line with the spirit of our commitments to the Paris conference on climate (COP 21). I would also like to highlight that the indicator of Access to Energy program promoting development for underprivileged people is exceeding expectations.

    Last but not least, Schneider Electric has been recognized as Industry Leader by the Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI) for the 3rd consecutive year. We are the only player of our industry to be listed in the European DJSI”.

    In the third quarter of 2015, 9 indicators out of 16 boosted the overall barometer score. Beginning 2016 2 new indicators will be integrated in the barometer:

    • The percentage of new large customer projects with a quantification of their CO2 impact
    • The percentage of employees working in countries with Schneider Electric’s gender pay equity plan.

    Highlights of this quarter:

    On the Planet pillar:

    • Employees’ strong performance on the 10% CO2 savings on transportation objective, with 7.03% of emissions avoided. This result shows Schneider Electric employees awareness on environmental stakes as well as very good supply chain control capabilities. The outlook of this indicator for 2017 seems promising.
    • 54 industrial sites of 100 meet the “toward zero waste to landfill” objective. This new objective concerns supply chain or manufacturing facilities recording a recovering rate of more than 99% of metal waste and more than 97% of non metal waste. To truly measure performance facilities that are not generating industrial wastes are not taken into consideration in the audit. The obtained result shows the efforts made to optimize upstream material choice. This process is integrated in a recycling policy for more than 10 years.

    On the Profit pillar:

    • The revenue of the Access to Energy program is 2.1 times higher this quarter than in the third quarter of 2014. This quarter’s continuous growth is the result of the overperformance in Africa, which consists of projects enabling access to energy in schools, as well as a big contract made in Indonesia, allowing electrification of more than 70 villages.
    • The launch of the Ethics & Responsibility assessment indicator, which contributes to the global good barometer score. 72% of Group entities passed the evaluation. The 2017 objective of 100% passing entities shows the willingness to measure and optimize processes, in order to guarantee a responsible management at all the Group’s level.

    On the People pillar:

    • Medical Incident Rate decreased by 23% compared to end of 2014 confirms the positive trend of security indicators, which are detailed in the annual report. It refers to providing Schneider Electric employees with a safe work environment, as well as trainings allowing a continuously improving risk management capacity.
    • The number of underprivileged people trained increased, leading the target to its halfway point, a satisfactory evolution, in line with identified local needs. New training centers have opened in two developing countries (Myanmar, Peru) and many others are planned by the end of 2015.
