• Based on a self-disclosure survey, the index lists 325 companies that have publicly demonstrated their commitment to equality and advancing women  in the workplace
• Schneider Electric's strong performance highlights its leadership and commitment to gender equality and to ensuring its employees have                equal opportunities everywhere 
 
January 23, 2020 –  Schneider Electric, the global leader in the digital transformation of energy management and automation, has for the third year in a row been ranked in the  Bloomberg Gender-Equality Index (GEI). The GEI is open to all companies, from different sectors, and with a market capitalization of more than U.S. $1 billion. Schneider Electric is one of 325 global companies, and one of 16 in the industrial sector, to be ranked.   
 
“We are honored to be recognized for the third year in a raw for our efforts to achieve gender equality,” said Jean-Pascal Tricoire, Schneider Electric's Chairman and CEO. “At Schneider Women, gender equity is a top priority for us. We pride ourselves on nurturing an inclusive culture where women leaders are empowered, enabled and visible in the organization. We have set a goal to reach at least 30% women on every single leadership team. Gender balance is integral to how we conduct business, and we are making it a business priority.” 
 
Bloomberg recognizes Schneider Electric's commitment to gender equality and transparency in reporting
Created in 2016, the Bloomberg GEI provides managers and investors with comparative information on gender-equality performance of the world's biggest companies. Based on a detailed self-disclosure survey on 2018 data, the GEI provides a unique barometer of gender-equality performance as well as transparency in gender reporting and to advancing women globally. And by publicly releasing their gender-related data, Schneider Electric has fortified its commitment to gender equality across 100+ countries it operates.
 
'The 325 companies included in the 2020 GEI have shown their commitment to transparency and demonstrated leadership in gender-related data reporting,' said Peter T. Grauer, Chairman of Bloomberg. 'Disclosure of company statistics and practices is an important first step in supporting gender equality globally.'
 
Schneider Electric's strong performance based on concrete achievements 
The Index includes 75 questions across one of five pillars: Female Leadership & Talent Pipeline, Equal Pay & Gender Pay Parity, Inclusive Culture, Sexual Harassment Policies and Pro-Women Brand. Companies are assigned a score based on both disclosure and data excellence.
 
Schneider Electric scored high in the areas of Inclusive Culture and Pro-Women Brand. This strong performance reflects the company's numerous initiatives to drive positive change and provide equal opportunities for everyone, everywhere, specifically in:

As of the end of 2018, the Global Family Leave Policy, has been fully deployed in over 59 countries, covering 75% of our employees, and is on target to reach 100% by 2020. And, the global Pay Equity Framework has been implemented in 50 countries, reaching over 92% of our total workforce, and expected to reach 95% by 2020.
