The inclusion comes hot on the heels of Schneider being named the world’s most sustainable corporation, by Corporate Knights, a media and research company focused on corporate sustainability performance, and is testimony to the company’s ongoing work to promote innovation, sustainability, and equal opportunities for all.
This year, Schneider Electric ranks #3 in the electronics industry sector, up one position from 2020’s ranking.
“We’re honoured to be included among the major companies in the Fortune listings,” Schneider Electric global chief human resources officer Charise Le said.
“The ranking is a reflection of our commitment to sustainability, innovation and to being the most local of global companies, empowering local talent and creating inclusion and equal opportunities for all.”
Fortune’s annual ranking of the World’s Most Admired Companies is based on a survey of US and global Fortune 500 companies posting the highest revenues in their respective industries. To identify the top performers in 52 industries, 3820 executives, directors and analysts in those industries were asked to rate companies on nine criteria, spanning investment value and quality of management and products to social responsibility and the ability to attract talent.
Schneider Electric was highly evaluated for its investment value and quality of management and products, its social responsibility and ability to attract talent.
Schneider Electric regularly appears on industry sustainability, inclusion and equality rankings. Other recent highlights include inclusion in the 2021 Bloomberg Gender-Equality Index, the Financial Times Diversity Leaders 2021 report, the Top 50 for the Universum World’s Most Attractive Employers list, as well as a 10th consecutive ranking on the Corporate Disclosure Project (CDP) A-List for environmental transparency and action.
