Sustainability-focused energy and automation digital solutions provider Schneider Electric announced today the launch of Communications Service, a new offering aimed at enabling companies to provide transparency on their ESG goals, strategies and progress.

The new services encompass multiple aspects of ESG communications, ranging from strategy development, promotion, reporting and engagement. Services included under the new offering include competitive market analysis and benchmarking, ESG narrative development, executive talking points, GRI-compliant ESG reporting, PR and media engagement, as well as marketing and stakeholder campaign creation tools, among others.

The move comes as companies increasingly face pressure from investors, regulators and other stakeholders to not only improve the sustainability aspects of their businesses, but also to track, monitor and report on the progress in these areas. According to Schneider Electric, the new service forms part of the company’s suite of energy and sustainability consulting services, aimed at delivering a holistic solution to meet companies’ needs for action and transparency on their energy, sustainability, and climate action.

Nisa Bradley, Vice President, Marketing of Energy and Sustainability Services for Schneider Electric, said:

“Taking meaningful action on environment, social, and governance (ESG) issues has become ‘table stakes’ for corporations today, who are acting in response to increasing pressure from investors, talent, and customers. However, many of these same organizations aren’t leveraging their ESG efforts for effective communication – an essential component of any program in an increasingly competitive and ambitious sustainability landscape.”
