Legrand is awarded the Ecoproduct Award for Sustainable Development
Legrand has been awarded the 1st Ecoproduct Award 2007 for Sustainable Development for its Céliane scenario switch. The award, which is attributed by the French Ministry for Ecology and Sustainable Development aims to reward companies that offer products whose design takes on board the goal of reducing environmental impact throughout their life cycle.
The Céliane scenario switch by Legrand ensures optimised energy consumption in a building. By its combined action on appliance standby mode, lighting, roller shutters, heating and water boilers, it effectively permits to reduce energy consumption in a dwelling by between 6 and 10 %.
The environment is a constant concern for the Group. Legrand takes action every day in this field, both in its industrial plants and by its offer of “responsible products”.
