In September 2015, all 193 Member States of the United Nations set a very ambitious and necessary agenda for achieving a better future for us all by adopting a set of 17 global goals: the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The SDGs aim to end poverty and hunger, fight inequalities and injustice, and protect our planet.
And, if we want to realize these goals, it’s essential that we get “buy in” from investors around the world.
The four key markets Schneider serves consume 70 percent of the world’s energy. We are in a hopeful position, because we have an opportunity to make a measurable difference in curbing energy consumption and driving sustainability worldwide.
The United Nations is calling on companies to play a big role in meeting the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by 2030, and your business’s operational practices are just one piece of the impact pie. What if you created a grassroots, company-wide movement with the potential for greater social — and business — impact?
NRG follows the GRI Framework to report on issues of importance to the company and its stakeholders. As part of a re-evaluation of our sustainability strategy, in 2013, we engaged a third party to facilitate a formal assessment to determine these key issues. Our initial assessment identified 49 issues as important to stakeholders and the NRG business. Selecting which of these issues to report on then involved a series of internal workshops and fed into the process for feedback received from regular engagement with our external stakeholders (see key issues matrix).

Three megatrends are escalating energy demand, while approximately 2.3 billion people either don’t have access to electricity at all or don’t have reliable access to electricity. We are committed to solving this energy paradox.
According to International Energy Agency, by 2050 the energy consumption will increase by 50%, whilst 2,3 billion people with poor or no access to energy must be attended by 2030 to accomplish one of 17 Sustainable Developments Goals settled by United Nations, that aims to universalize the access to affordable and sustainable energy worldwide.
Energy and sustainability initiatives are often managed independently due to departmental divisions. These barriers are often fueled by inconsistent data and a lack of visibility and yield missed opportunities. In leading companies, these departments are becoming tightly integrated, working together in support of the company’s core goals and initiatives. We call this Active Energy Management.
