Document Industry Guide to CSR Reporting

The CSR Department at Legrand forms part of the Strategy and Development Department. It is responsible for managing the Group's CSR strategy and deploying it on all organizational levels in the Group.

 

CSR Management and Governance

The aim of the CSR Department is to stimulate and federate the CSR initiatives conducted in all Legrand entities all over the world. It is a central structure based on several expert functional departments (Legal Affairs, Human Resources, Group Purchasing, Quality and Environment managers in the Strategic Business Units, etc.), which in turn are in charge of coordinating networks of representatives located within each subsidiary of the Group, and operating directly on the four areas constituting the Group's CSR strategy (Users, Society, Employees, and Environment).

A CSR steering committee , which includes all the functional Departments and the main Country Departments, meets three or four times a year to approve and track the actions of the Group CSR strategy.

Within the Group's Board of Directors, the Committee on Strategy and Social Responsibility, consisting of four administrators, guarantees that the Group's strategy remains compliant with the rules of CSR.

This organisation ensures the consistent management of all Legrand CSR actions. It allows the Group CSR strategy to be adapted and deployed all across the Group, and in particular within acquired companies.

 

A network of more than 300 representatives

The Legrand CSR Department is based on a network of CSR representatives, allowing it to remain in constant interaction with its entities and subsidiaries all over the world. These CSR representatives are tasked with deploying the CSR strategy, tracking the projects on the sites, and reporting the results. The network of representatives is made up of about 300 persons all over the Group.

 

International standards

Legrand applies the main international standards concerning Corporate Social Responsibility. In particular, the Group is a member of the United Nations Global Compact. It also complies with the following reference standards:

  • The Universal Declaration of Human Rights,
  • The GRI and ISO 26000 guidelines, which are also tools used to evaluate the Group's strategy,
  • The obligations under Article 225 of the Grenelle 2 law.

In addition, all Legrand entities share a Charter of Fundamental Principles specifying the rules applicable to behaviour and how business is conducted. A network of more than sixty ethics representatives ensures that these rules are observed. The Charter of Fundamental Principles is supplemented by the Fair Competition Charter and a guide to good business practice focused on preventing corruption and fraud. The Group has also implemented an Environment Charter and a Prevention Charter.
