Sustainable growth is business growth.

Taking positive action is central to Schneider Electric’s mission as we lead the digital transformation of energy management and automation. We’re looking to have a lasting sustainable effect on our employees, partners, shareholders, and the world. We made strong progress in 2018 toward our global sustainability and business goals. Along with an organic revenue growth of 6.6 percent, we also saw record-highs for net income and earnings per share. We consolidated toward our core businesses of energy management — regrouping Medium Voltage, Low Voltage, and Secure Power — and industrial automation.

Further, the Schneider Sustainability Impact 2018 — 2020 exceeded its target score of 5/10 for 2018, achieving 6.10/10. We are well-positioned to deliver full digital solutions of efficiency and sustainability in the year to come.

Looking ahead, we continue to target a profitable growth of 3 to 5 percent and an improved margin thanks to more innovation and technologies for customers worldwide.

2018 is another year of acceleration of our strategy execution. We provide our customers with complete solutions, cross-selling multiple technologies, more products provided through an enlarged network of partners, more services, more software, and a more targeted development of systems, which creates a solid base for growth in 2019.
