“The age of fire is over. Now it’s time for the digital age.”
So says Jean-Pascal Tricoire, CEO of energy and automation firm Schneider Electric, which this week was announced on the Global 100 index as the world’s most sustainable company. Schneider develops systems that manage electricity for businesses and industry, in recent years working with corporations such as Walmart WMT +1.3%, Marriott and Deloitte to improve the energy efficiency of their properties.
The past year has certainly provided its fair share of challenges. Our communities are working collectively to endure and overcome both COVID-19 and the accompanying recession the pandemic has helped cause.

About Schneider Electric
At Schneider, we believe access to energy and digital is a basic human right. We empower all to make the most of their energy and resources, ensuring Life Is On everywhere, for everyone, at every moment.
Supply chains are in the spotlight. Following the crisis, there is speculation on how they will adapt in the future. In recent years, with efficiency as a constant driver, we have been experiencing a transformation defined by four key trends: digitization, sustainability, customization, and regionalization. It was these trends that underpinned Schneider’s Supply Chain Strategy Tailored, Sustainable, Connected 4.0, implemented four years ago.
Today, resilience is at the top of everyone’s agenda – but what does it mean for supply chains?
