By July 29, 2019, humanity’s demand for nature will exceed what Earth’s ecosystems can replenish during the entire year. It is Earth Overshoot Day and the 2019 date is the earliest ever. Since overuse is only possible for a limited duration in time, human demand on nature will be brought in balance with what Earth can provide – the question is whether this happens by design or disaster.The good news is that the current trend can be reversed.
Our promise to future generations: we will be part of the solution, taking urgent actions now to co-create a brighter future for everyone, everywhere. A future where access to energy and digital are basic human rights. We’ll align with United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and measure our impact with transparency. In fact, our 2019 progress is highlighted throughout this report.
The 2018 – 2020 Schneider Sustainability Impact (SSI) is a collection of our sustainability goals, grouped under five megatrends. We use the SSI to share and measure our progress toward our own sustainability objectives, which are closely tied to the United Nations (U.N.) Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

The changing landscape of the COVID-19 crisis calls for in-the-moment data and insights, so today, we are fortunate to share the fourth wave of the Porter Novelli COVID-19 Tracker: Leadership During the Virus Crisis.
The COVID‐19 crisis is accelerating the transformation of business – one that solidifies the private sector mandate of a stakeholder‐first, rather than shareholder‐only, mentality. We’ve kept a pulse on this shift, brand action and stakeholder expectations, revealing that 75% of the U.S. public believes business must take action to protect employees, care for communities and support front-line workers in the fight against COVID‐19. Companies who have rapidly and authentically met this expectation demonstrate Purpose – at its finest.
Our annual Impact Report explores our progress across our environmental, social and governance work throughout 2019.
When Pierre Omidyar founded eBay in 1995, he built our platform with the belief that people are inherently good and capable. He set out to create an honest, inclusive and vibrant space of connections, where anyone could find exactly what they were looking for and where anyone could make their own living.
Now, as we approach our 25th anniversary, the world looks different from when that first sale was made of a laser pointer on eBay, but the core of who we are remains the same. Our mission always has been to empower people and to create economic opportunity for all.
Climate change is a rapidly growing global concern. Therefore, new, more stringent regulations to reduce CO2 emissions will be introduced to allow a massive deployment of distributed energy resources, including the incorporation of electric vehicles. Electric distribution utilities will therefore face problems in managing their networks and will need to adopt new solutions.
This Thursday, we will host Day 1 of the Porter Novelli Purpose Summit: Committing to Action Amid COVID‐19, which will take an in-depth look at how the pandemic is accelerating the transformation of business as a force for good. Conversations will highlight the actions of brands like L.L. Bean, Ben & Jerry’s, Georgetown University’s Business for Impact initiative, among others; insights from our extensive, ongoing research; and useful perspectives from Porter Novelli leaders.
