As a provider of natural resource and energy efficiency solutions, Schneider Electric is naturally orientated toward sustainability. However, as a large industrial company, it has wider environmental and social impacts and our manager wanted to ensure these were being properly managed. It became clear from the engagement with the Lead Independent Director that there was a strong CEO-level commitment to sustainability. We discussed the targets and measures in place to monitor progress and how these are integrated into pay policies.

Particular focus was given to climate change, where the company was encouraged to manage its own emissions, monitor and reduce emissions arising in its supply chain and quantify how it is enabling its customers to cut their emissions. It has adopted a science-based target, consistent with limiting the global temperature rise to 1.5 degrees Celsius.

The value of your investments and any income from them can go down as well as up and you may not get back the original amount invested. Changes in rates of exchange may also reduce the value of your investment. Gearing is used for investment purposes to obtain, increase or reduce exposure to an asset, index or investment. The use of gearing can enhance returns to investors in a rising market, but if the market falls the losses may be greater.
