Legrand enters the Global 100 index
For the first time, the Legrand Group has been included in the 2015 Global 100 index of the 100 most sustainable corporations worldwide, ranking in 48th place.
Established annually by Corporate Knights*, the Global 100 index is released each year at the World Economic Forum in Davos (Switzerland). It comprises the 100 companies worldwide most committed to sustainable development and which successfully reconcile sustainability and financial performance. The ranking includes corporations from all sectors of the economy, and from 22 different countries. It is established on the basis of a set of 12 criteria combining performance in financial terms and on CS (Corporate Social Responsibility).
Legrand’s entry into the Global 100 reflects the integration of CS at the very heart of its development strategy.
