How would you ensure in your organization that ‘sustainability and responsibility’ is not just a tick-box exercise?
“Working within Schneider Electric, a company which has been nominated by Corporate Knights as 2021 Most Sustainable Corporation in the World, gives me a different perspective about the factors which contributed to make the sustainability and responsibility practices a part of Schneider Electric DNA. First of all, ensuring the tone at the top is crucial, as it exercises a significant impact on a company’s cultural environment, corporate values and ethical climate. Secondly, don't treat sustainability and social responsibility solely as a compliance requirement but embed it instead as an integrated part of business strategy. As it may require change of mentality and change of company culture, it should consequently be managed as a strategic business transformation, ensuring active engagement of all company employees.”
