||Sustainable development holds companies up to stakeholders’ expectations. As a Global Compact signatory, Schneider Electric takes sustainable development issues into account when selecting suppliers.
The Group encourages suppliers and their subcontractors to join the Global Compact themselves. By asking suppliers to meet its direct requirements and make a public commitment, the Group exposes them to the principles of sustainable development.
This approach also reflects Schneider Electric’s commitment to promoting human rights, in accordance with Global Compact Principle 1 (Businesses should support and respect the protection of internationally proclaimed
human rights) and Principle 2 (Businesses should make sure that they are not complicit in human rights abuses).
