Schneider Electric has been ranked number three in Gartner’s 2019 Supply Chain Top 15 for Europe. The rankings for Europe were announced by Gartner at its annual Supply Chain Executive Conference in Barcelona, Spain on 17-19 June, 2019.

“With this #3 ranking, this is the second year that we are in the top five on Gartner’s Europe list of top supply chains. I am especially proud of our perfect 10 CSR Component score. The CSR Component Score according to Gartner, is an index of third-party corporate social responsibility measures of commitment, transparency and performance. This past year has been an exciting one for us wherein our Le Vaudreuil (France) smart factory has also been recognised by the World Economic Forum as a manufacturing lighthouse for the Fourth Industrial revolution”, said Mourad Tamoud, Executive Vice President, Global Supply Chain, Schneider Electric.

“With our Tailored Sustainable Connected 4.0 digital transformation accelerating, we continue to drive ongoing digitisation and improvements from an end-to-end perspective – across our procurement, manufacturing, planning and delivery pillars – with a customer first mindset, focusing on quality products/services and supply chain excellence, at the same time caring for our people and planet”, he said.

According to Gartner in its announcement, “Europe-based supply chain organisations continue to build on their strong performance in 2019, demonstrating exemplary demand-driven leadership and corporate social responsibility. Beyond profit, leading companies focused on people and protecting the planet, with nine out of the 15 companies achieving a perfect 10 in the CSR category”.

Just last month, Schneider was ranked #11 on Gartner’s Supply Chain Top 25 for 2019, in its worldwide compilation announced at its Supply Chain Executive Conference in the United States.

At the same time, Schneider also won the 2019 Industrial Manufacturing Supply Chainnovator Award in Gartner’s 2019 Supply Chainnovator Awards which “recognises unconventional, innovative and high-impact supply chain initiatives in the industrial manufacturing sector.”
