“Climate action is needed now,” said Silvio Napoli, chairman of Schindler’s board of directors. “Companies like ours have a crucial role to play in facilitating the transition to a low-carbon economy. We have a lot of work ahead of us, but we are convinced that this is the right thing to do.”

The announcement comes as Schindler outlines new sustainability commitments in its corporate responsibility report released today, including a full transition to renewable electricity by 2025, and a “no waste to landfill” goal at all of its sites worldwide by 2023. Schindler also strengthened its sustainability governance structure in 2020, with the establishment of a global sustainability committee chaired by CEO Thomas Oetterli. In September 2020, Schindler officially joined the UNGC, the world’s largest corporate sustainability initiative, reaffirming its commitment to the ten UNGC principles.
