Rueil-Malmaison (France), October 7, 2016 – Schneider Electric, the global specialist in energy management and automation, today announced that Gartner, Inc., the leading provider of research and analysis on the global information technology industry, has rated the company #5 in its 2016 Gartner Supply Chain Top 25: Europe Top 15¹. Schneider Electric joins the top 5 for the first time this year, jumping 5 spots from its 2015 ranking.
Key Capabilities of Leaders Highlighted
Gartner identified the top 15 performers in the report based on a combination of business metrics – return on assets, inventory turns, revenue growth and corporate social responsibility (CSR) – and a composite score that consists of the opinion of peers, Gartner supply chain analysts and the business metrics. This is the first year that Gartner has included a corporate social responsibility score in its rankings, which the company believes highlights the importance investors, customers, consumers and others are placing on companies incorporating CSR goals into their supply chain strategy and operations.
The report also noted that leading European organizations are not only placing increased emphasis on CSR, but also on:
- Multi-Enterprise Focus;
- Increased Adoption of Advanced Analytics;
- Digital Business;
- Supply Chain Innovation
