The Legrand Group confirms its commitment to addressing climate change by signing the Copenhagen Communique
The Copenhague Communique is calling for a robust and equitable global deal on climate change that responds credibly to the scale and urgency of the crises facing the world today.
Legrand has signed this Communique and already acts towards a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions via its "Climact" project which focuses on three key areas: energy efficiency at industrial facilities, eco-design for new products, and transport of people and goods.
The Group's goal for 2010 is to cut CO2 emissions from industrial plants by 10% as compared to 2006. By 2008, they were down 6.4% on a like-for-like basis on this 2006 level, as a result of the various measures taken by the Group.
A key element of Legrand's comprehensive approach to addressing climate change is therefore its ability to provide consumers with solutions allowing them to reduce power consumption and environmental impact, while improving the quality of electricity.
