12/18/2009 02:12 The Legrand Group confirms its commitment to addressing climate change by signing the Copenhagen Communique

The Copenhague Communique is calling for a robust and equitable global deal on climate change that responds credibly to the scale and urgency of the crises facing the world today.
Legrand has signed this Communique and already acts towards a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions via its "Climact" project which focuses on three key areas: energy efficiency at industrial facilities, eco-design for new products, and transport of people and goods.
The Group's goal for 2010 is to cut CO2 emissions from industrial plants by 10% as compared to 2006. By 2008, they were down 6.4% on a like-for-like basis on this 2006 level, as a result of the various measures taken by the Group.
A key element of Legrand's comprehensive approach to addressing climate change is therefore its ability to provide consumers with solutions allowing them to reduce power consumption and environmental impact, while improving the quality of electricity.

12/07/2009 12:12 Legrand South Africa achieves renewal of its "Black Economic Empowerment" certificate with an improved rating.

Having first been granted BEE (Black Economic Empowerment) certification in 2008, Legrand South Africa had its certificate renewed in 2009, moving from grade 8 to grade 7. This improved rating was due to various measures including the use of local BEE providers, the reinforcement of coloured people among management staff and an increase in the entity's welfare expenditure.
BEE is a South African national scheme that aims to speed up the economic integration of historically disadvantaged population categories in South Africa, especially black people, women, young people, the disabled and inhabitants of rural communities.
This achievement means Legrand is now considered a BEE value-added partner, and its client companies receive points for their own certificates, thereby contributing to increasing the overall impact of the scheme.
