87% of Legrand industrial sites worldwide certified ISO 14001
One of Legrand’s commitments in the framework of its 2011-2013 Roadmap was to ensure enhanced environmental performance at its industrial sites and logistics centres, with the aim of achieving systematic ISO 14001* certification.
In particular, the Group is determined to engage its new acquisitions in this certification process as quickly as possible, supporting them in progressing to the required level. Achieving this goal requires considerable and recurring efforts, especially in countries where existing regulations are far removed from the criteria of ISO 14001 certification.
In 2013, 2 new industrial units joined the list of Legrand sites enjoying ISO 14001 certification, namely ashik in India and Bangkok in Thailand.
The efforts of the teams at these sites, certified by Bureau Veritas, have allowed Legrand to maintain a rate above 87% for the ISO 14001 certification of industrial and logistics units that have been part of the Group for at least 5 years.
*The ISO 14001 standard is an international standard published by the International Organization for Standardization, which establishes a benchmark for the setting-up of environmental management systems.
