Our CSR commitments
Committed for a more sustainable world
We want the whole world to have building solutions that are simple, innovative and sustainable—in how they are used and how they are designed. That puts CSR at the heart of our growth. And because we believe it is our responsibility to provide concrete answers to the major societal challenges of our time, we are stepping up our push for increasingly responsible business development that benefits all of our stakeholders.
"Legrand is actively engaged in meeting the challenges of the world around us, starting with the climate crisis. Every day, we take concrete steps to create a more sustainable world for future generations."
Improving lives: our 4 CSR priorities
Legrand has laid out its CSR commitments in four main areas, which bring together the most tangible challenges for the Group and its stakeholders:
- Promote diversity and inclusion
- Reduce our carbon footprint
- Develop a circular economy
- Be a responsible business
It is our ambition to take an active role in shaping a low-carbon society.
To promote a more sustainable future for all, Legrand is committed to achieving the following targets by 2030:
• scopes 1 and 2: direct and indirect emissions at our establishments and manufacturing sites.
• scope 3: indirect emissions produced by goods and services purchased, transport services, and the distribution and end-of-life processing of products sold.
Our 2022-2024 CSR roadmap
To meet our medium and long-term targets, we rely on short-term CSR roadmaps that serve as operations-level action plans for the Group’s CSR program.
Our 2022-2024 roadmap, published in March 2022, is the fifth such plan. It details our 15 priorities for this period, and sets out specific targets to be achieved by 2024.
In 2022, the first year of this new roadmap, we reached a 123% overall achievement rate.
