The Legrand Group confirms its commitment to combating climate change by signing up to the 2°C Challenge Communiqué
In line with various other initiatives it has taken in this field, Legrand now confirms its commitment to acting against climate change by signing up to the 2°C Challenge Communiqué. This appeal was launched by the Corporate Leaders Group on Climate Change, a workgroup sponsored by the Prince of Wales's Foundation.
Legrand already acts towards reducing greenhouse gas emissions through an in-house project entitled Legrand Climact which is focused on three main areas of action: control of energy consumption at industrial facilities, product eco-design, and transportation.
For the last 4 years, Legrand has also been a participant in the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP), which aims to ensure the disclosure of reliable information on action to be taken to counteract global warming.
For the first time this year, Legrand calculated its carbon footprint according to the GHG (Green House Gases) Protocol, publishing the results in the context of its commitment to the CDP.
Another key aspect of the company's overall approach to climate change involves providing solutions for energy consumption management in buildings and enhanced energy quality.
