Legrand is recognized for the quality of its analysis of greenhouse gas emissions (Scope 3*)
Each year, the think tank EIO (Environmental Investment Organisation) publishes several Environmental Tracking Carbon Rankings which rate companies worldwide according to a series of criteria related to their greenhouse gas emissions and their disclosure on this issue.
Legrand, which applies 10 categories of analysis enabling to detail the origin of its Scope 3* greenhouse gas emissions, was ranked 3rd by EIO in this year's "ET scope 3 disclosure leader award", a result that provides recognition of the in-depth efforts made by the teams in charge of these evaluations.
Legrand has been committed for many years to limiting the environmental impact of its activities.
*Scope 3 covers the Group's indirect greenhouse gas emissions, i.e. those emissions which are generated by its operations but beyond its organisational scope. Scope 3 thus covers a wide range of contributions including especially emissions related to raw materials and logistics.
