FORT COLLINS, CO--(Marketwired - Apr 10, 2013) -  Environmental Leader today released the 2013 edition of its annual Insider Knowledge Report, sponsored by Schneider Electric. The report includes lessons-learned, tactics, insights and case studies from corporate environmental, sustainability and energy management decision-makers.

Executives from Anheuser-Busch InBev, Con Edison, Fujitsu, General Motors, Humana, Nokia, Reckitt Benckiser, Schneider Electric, Staples, Symantec, TD Bank Group, and more than 100 others contributed to the report and shared what they learned in the trenches last year.

"Contributions to the report indicate that companies are not shying away from using their environmental initiatives to solve 'big' problems, and that the steps taken by some of these companies have been significant over the last year -- and have led to big gains," says Paul Nastu, publisher of Environmental Leader and Energy Manager Today. "Companies are also requiring, more than ever, that their sustainability initiatives contribute to the bottom line."

"As a global leader in sustainability services and energy management, Schneider Electric understands the importance of leadership and innovation in developing effective, forward-thinking solutions that benefit the greater good as well as the bottom line," said Mike Fraser, global vice president, Schneider Electric Sustainability Services.
