Schneider Electric has recently been recognised as one of the World's Most Ethical Companies by the Ethisphere Institute.

This is the seventh year in a row that Schneider Electric has received this accolade from Ethisphere. This year, 124 companies were designated as World's Most Ethical Companies.

These companies represent 52 industry sectors headquartered in 19 countries. Schneider Electric is one of the only two companies honoured in the “Diversified machinery” category.

“We are particularly proud of being honoured for the seventh year by Ethisphere Institute, and moreover to be among the only two companies recognised in our category,” says Emmanuel Babeau, Deputy Chief Executive Officer in charge of Finance - Legal Affairs and Chairman of the Ethics - Responsibility Committee at Schneider Electric.

“It proves that Schneider Electric considers very thoroughly ethical challenges and address them with impact and efficiency, in line with our corporate values,” he explains.

“In so doing, our customers may be sure that our ethical standards are the highest possible and that we care for planet and society”.

At Schneider Electric, ethics and governance are key drivers of growth and of competitiveness.

“Over the last eleven years, we have seen the shift in societal expectations, constant redefinition of laws and regulations and the geo-political climate. We have also seen how companies honoured as the World's Most Ethical respond to these challenges,” says Ethisphere's Chief Executive Officer, Timothy Erblich.

“They invest in their local communities around the world, embrace strategies of diversity and inclusion, and focus on long term-ism as a sustainable business advantage,” he explains.

 "Congratulations to everyone at Schneider Electric for being recognised as a World's Most Ethical Company."
