A structured process of improvement

Legrand's sustainable development approach is a commitment covering three areas: social responsibility, environment and governance. These three areas comprise eight priorities, which are major concerns for the Group, and are built into the activities of the Group's teams on a day-to-day basis, with a continuing desire for progress and improvement.

3 areas, 8 priorities


Working in an ethical, transparent way, and communicating with the stakeholders, to ensure sustainable growth, Legrand applies its commitments to all its activities. One aim in particular is to involve the Group's suppliers and customers in its sustainable development approach.


The Group's environmental approach aims to incorporate environmental protection at all levels within the company. It concerns not only the sites and logistics flows but also product design. Central to all these concerns is the constant endeavour to improve the energy efficiency of buildings.




The 2011-2013 roadmap has 28 targets, for which the Group publishes an annual progress report. The roadmap was presented and approved by the Board of Directors at its May 2011 meeting. Progress towards these targets will be published annually
