Legrand wins a 2013 Business and Environment Award
At the Pollutec trade show, Legrand received the 2013 Business and Environment Award jury’s grand prize in the "Innovation in eco-technologies" category for its building energy controller.
The Business and Environment Awards are organised annually by the Ministry for the Ecology, Sustainable Development and Energy in conjunction with ADEME(*) to recognise companies for their noteworthy achievements in the fields of sustainable development and the environment.
The building energy controller is a simple tool enabling active energy management. It lets users view their consumption, which encourages them to change their behaviour. This results in a saving of up to 30% in energy consumption and a smaller carbon footprint for the building equipped with this system.
