Track Legrand's CSR performance

 

Document The full 2014-2018 CSR roadmap

In 2014, Legrand published a new CSR roadmap for 2014-2018. This new roadmap sets out the Group's CSR commitments for the period. In particular, it specifies the 21 priorities the Group has set for itself to work on between now and 2018. The annual tracking of indicators relating to these 21 priorities provides a measure of the Group's CSR performance.

A progressive process

The 2014-2018 roadmap was presented and approved by the Group's Board of Directors in March 2014. It follows on from the previous Sustainable Development roadmaps, but also introduces some important advances, such as:

  • increased interaction with the Group strategy and business,
  • major involvement of stakeholders,
  • determining the issues that are relevant to the Group,
  • deployment of the CSR strategy in all Group entities,
  • implementing consolidated indicators to track Legrand's CSR performance,
  • strong accountability of those who contribute to the results.
