Independent Analyst Firm For Energy, EH&S & Sustainability Research

As part of its strategy, Schneider Electric is placing a significant focus on the utilities and smart grid sector, where changes are opening up opportunities for firms delivering information technology (IT), operational technology (OT) and services to the industry. With €5.7 billion ($7.4 billion) in revenues for its Infrastructure business, serving customers in the oil and gas, transportation and electric utilities segments, Schneider Electric has established itself as a major player in the industry. 




This report helps Heads of EH&S understand the environmental strategies, governance approaches, budget allocations, spending trends, and priorities of firms in North America. We interviewed 60 EH&S leaders from firms with revenues of at least $250 million based in Canada and the US. The decentralized approach to EH&S governance in North America results in Canadian and US firms having narrower responsibilities than their European counterparts. Verdantix found that improving compliance and EH&S management top the agenda for North American firms. 



This report helps sustainability directors, and their colleagues in product design and procurement, understand the benefits of the partnership between Schneider Electric and the Sustainable Apparel Coalition (SAC). The SAC sustainability assessment tools (Higg Index) aim to enhance transparency and reduce impact in the apparel and footwear industry by providing internal educational modules that complement traditional life cycle assessment (LCA) and supply chain analysis.
