28, 2022 ─
Schneider Electric, the leader in the digital transformation of
energy management and automation, announced today the results of
its sustainable impact program for the second quarter of 2022.
Schneider’s Sustainability Impact (SSI) scored 4.17 out of ten,
relative to its 4.70 year-end target. The SSI dashboard measures

climate, resources, trust, equal opportunities, generations, and
The publication of Schneider’s latest SSI scores coincides with
Earth Overshoot Day, the date at which more of the Earth’s
resources have been consumed than can be replenished. As Earth
Overshoot Day in 2022 has occurred one day earlier than last year,
it serves as a stark reminder of the need to urgently address
humanity’s adverse impact on the planet.
"Our planet is burning, literally. We have to face the reality
in front of us and keep accelerating our sustainability
efforts," said Gwenaelle Avice-Huet, Schneider Electricity’s
Chief Strategy and Sustainability Officer. "As an Impact company,
we are convinced that we can help each other with technology,
collaboration, and trust. Advancing on our Sustainability Impact
program is not about ESG compliance. It’s about embarking and
working with our entire ecosystem of employees, clients, suppliers,
and partners to progress together.”
