In partnership with the Rexel Foundation, Legrand is supporting social entrepreneurship projects aimed at facilitating access to energy
On October 2nd, 2013, the exel Foundation for a better energy future and Ashoka presented the 2013 IMPACT Energy Efficiency Programme awards to 2 of 9 social entrepreneurship project leaders who had been selected for support by the IMPACT Energy Efficiency Programme.
To maintain the momentum generated by the IMPACT programme, Legrand and the exel Foundation have combined their efforts and declared their intention to set up a joint skills platform in support of these entrepreneurs. More generally, the partnership between Legrand and the exel Foundation aims to allocate resources (equipment, trade skills, etc.) to speed up the development of initiatives to act against energy poverty in France.
