Focus on Human Rights and Business Integrity
In 2011, the United Nations issued the Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights, that precisely defined the roles and responsibilities of States and businesses on that matter. As a business leader, Schneider Electric intends to follow and promote these principles. Sustainability is at the heart of our company’s strategy, and we are convinced that energy access is a basic human right.
With a new Human Rights policy, approved by CEO Jean-Pascal Tricoire, we confirm our engagement to strive for the respect of all internationally recognized Human Rights, along our value chain.
At Schneider Electric, we encourage our employees to conduct business ethically by adopting a zero-tolerance policy towards corruption and other unethical practices. To promote and develop integrity in business activities, various anti-corruption initiatives have been created or reinforced in the last years, both in terms of prevention and control.
Schneider Electric became a member of Transparency International in 2014 to promote and strengthen integrity in business. TI is a leading NGO which aims to stop corruption and promote transparency, responsibility and integrity at all levels and across all sectors. The Group participates in intercompany exchanges organized by the NGO.
