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).

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.
In physics, electricity is power. Electricity can also be power, though, in the sense that it creates opportunity for the pursuit of social capital and positive outcomes. This week on Sea Change Radio, we highlight the efforts of two nonprofits that are working to bring clean, affordable energy to some of the most under-resourced people on the planet. First, we hear from Anya Cherneff of Empower Generation who gives us a snapshot of her organization’s efforts to bring electricity to people in Nepal, and how it connects to fighting human trafficking in Southeast Asia.
