Our approach

Legrand has long been committed to an initiative to protect the environment. This responsibility involves the Group's sites as well as product design. The challenge is to innovate to limit the environmental impact of Legrand activities, particularly by favouring the implementation of a circular economy. Only by protecting the planet can Legrand progress and help move its business sector forwards.

 

Reduce the Group's environmental footprint

Legrand's environmental policy is a continuous improvement initiative that has been deployed on the Group's sites through ISO 14001 certification. Legrand intends to obtain this certification for all of its industrial and logistics sites all over the world, and by the same token it is committed to reducing the energy intensity of its activities.

Innovate for a circular economy

Protecting the environment also involves promoting the principles of the circular economy with the Group. This means innovating to build a virtuous ecosystem based on better utilisation of natural resources (in connection with the Group's eco-design initiative) and more complete recycling of waste, both for the purposes of Legrand's manufacturing activity and for the electrical sector, in particular by setting up systems to process Legrand products at their end of life.
