A responsible and mutual commitment with our suppliers
As a Global Compact signatory, Schneider Electric has been involved in an ambitious approach to include sustainable development challenges in the supplier selection and working processes.
Since 2004, the Group has been supporting its suppliers so that they can publically commit and directly adhere to the Global Compact. Schneider Electric wants to place itself in a follow-up process with its suppliers by encouraging them to make progress according to the guidelines of ISO 26000.
Schneider Electric began an approach that is based on an evaluation carried out by a third party. This is to promote the commitment of the supplier to a process of continuous improvement based on ISO 26000, through improvement plans supported by the supplier.
