Legrand has a long-standing commitment to an initiative to limit the environmental impact of its activities. This historic commitment is reinforced by its membership of two international initiatives to combat climate change: Science-Based Targets and the Global Alliance for Energy Productivity. Legrand also takes the price per tonne of CO2 into account in its operational considerations, particularly in its investment decision processes.
Moreover, because buildings worldwide account for 35% of energy consumption and 20% of CO2 emissions, enhancing the energy performance of buildings is a major challenge for Legrand. The installation of Legrand equipment and solutions for better energy efficiency in buildings will contribute to CO2 emission reduction and to containing climate change.
