Schneider Electric, the leader in digital transformation of energy management and automation, has been named one of the 2018 World’s Most Ethical Companies by the Ethisphere Institute, a global leader in defining and advancing the standards of ethical business practices. This is the eighth consecutive year Schneider Electric has received this accolade.

Created in 2006, the annual World’s Most Ethical Company® list honours companies that have demonstrated exemplary ethical leadership in their industries, raising the standards of corporate behaviour as both the right thing to do and an effective long-term strategy. Five key areas are assessed: ethics and compliance programme, corporate citizenship and responsibility, culture of ethics, governance and leadership, and innovation and reputation. In 2018, the list included 135 companies from 23 countries and 57 industries.

Schneider Electric honoured for the eighth consecutive year

For Schneider Electric, this award remains just as important the eighth time as the first. As Emmanuel Babeau, Deputy Chief Executive Officer in charge of Finance and Legal Affairs, explained, “Schneider Electric does not take this kind of recognition for granted. It reflects our efforts to press ahead with our corporate, social and environmental responsibility strategy and deliver what our stakeholders expect from us – the guarantee of innovative solutions produced by a company people are proud to be associated with. Our ethical credentials are increasingly important to clients in particular.”

“While the discourse around the world changed profoundly in 2017, a stronger voice emerged. Global corporations operating with a common rule of law are now society’s strongest force to improve the human condition,” says Timothy Erblich, CEO, Ethisphere. “This year we saw companies increasingly finding their voice. The World’s Most Ethical Companies in particular continued to show exemplary leadership. I congratulate everyone at Schneider Electric for being recognized as one of the World's Most Ethical Companies."

A wide-reaching commitment to ethics and responsibility, mirrored by action

Schneider Electric has placed ethics and responsibility at the core of its strategy, making a commitment to act with the highest standards. Having introduced its own Principles of Responsibility in 2002 to help guide employees worldwide, the company regularly leads in-house and industry initiatives to drive positive change. For example, in 2017, Schneider Electric introduced new face-to-face and e-training modules to ensure business integrity in situations where employees are most exposed to the risk of corruption.

Extending the scope of its responsibility, the company also launched a more comprehensive, supplier-monitoring programme to step up accountability in its supply chain on human rights and environmental protection. More generally, the company has designed a Responsibility & Ethics Dynamics programme to support employees’ efforts to uphold its Principles of Responsibility and manage any issues that may arise. Combining prevention and advice with investigation and control, this programme also serves as an indicator of ethical performance in Schneider Electric’s Planet & Society barometer.

In the latest published results (for the third quarter of 2017), Schneider Electric had made significant progress in supply-chain accountability, with 84.6 per cent of suppliers being in line with ISO 26000 standards, compared to only 48 per cent at the beginning of 2015. Meanwhile, 88.7 per cent of the group’s entities had passed its internal Ethics and Responsibility evaluation compared to 79 per cent last trimester.

Today we are all concerned with the energy we consume within our homes. But how many truly understand the ins and outs of home energy use, and where exactly does the electrician and the development of energy management systems come into play. There is much to consider when discussing home energy use. The consumer first off needs to be informed about energy use, how it is calculated and ultimately billed if they are to make changes to their energy consumption rates. But in terms of educating consumers does the residential electrician have a role? And beyond that are manufacturers developing products designed to help electricians and consumers better understand residential energy use? Throughout this article we will deal with each of these important questions.

Jeremy Herrington

Total Electrical Solutions was founded in 2013 by Jeremy Herrington in Quispamsis, on the outskirts of Saint John, New Brunswick. Since 2013 Jeremy has steadily grown Total Electrical Solutions in the residential, commercial and construction sectors. The growth is primarily the result of Jeremy’s customer first philosophy, plus his over 20 years of industry experience.

Jeremy grew up learning about the industry from his father who was an electrical contractor. Jeremy spent his early years helping and watching his father as a contractor and business owner. After high school Jeremy was, like many, not wholly aware of the course he wished to take and so he began an electrical apprenticeship at his father’s company.
