Legrand’s Vision for a More Comprehensive, Ethical Business EcosystemLegrand's ethics are at the heart of all its economic relations, all along the value chain. As a global specialist and market leader, Legrand is committed to the highest levels of ethical interactions with all stakeholders, distributors, installers or end customers, and the overall economic environment in which the Group operates daily.
The Legrand Group global headquarters located in Limoges, France, aims to provide users with sustainable solutions and to ensure sustainable purchasing. In our Corporate Social Responsibility Roadmap, we’ve outlined the areas of action which will deepen our commitment to a strong business ecosystem.
Providing Sustainable Solutions
Protecting the health and safety of users:
Legrand is committed to protecting the health and safety of the users of our products and, in turn, reducing the possibility that our finished products could create risk to the user. That is why we take great care to manufacture quality products. However, we acknowledge that there are occasions when it is necessary to issue a recall on our products. When that happens, our product risk quality policy outlines steps to quickly and responsibly identify and record product quality issues, evaluate the potential health and safety risk to users and communicate with users as necessary. Our goal is to ensure that 100% of turnover is covered by a product risk quality policy.
Stimulating innovation thanks to partnerships: Legrand’s success is highly dependent on our ability to develop and market new and unique products and services in the markets we serve. We are committed to both organic innovation and innovation through partnerships to identify new opportunities to advance safety, security, performance, efficiency and sustainability within high performance buildings. We prioritize partnerships with universities, consortia, associations and with researchers. Our goal for this roadmap is to seek new innovation partnerships on behalf of Legrand Group.
Ensuring sustainable procurementLegrand’s suppliers are important external stakeholders within our organization’s value chain. We work to ensure that our suppliers operate in accordance with policies and practices that meet our global standards for health, safety, the environment, and human rights by conducting risk assessments and by guiding our suppliers to develop action plans to improve their performance as needed. We monitor and document their progress in the field to have confidence that the components, materials and products we source are consistent with our commitment to sustainability.
Promoting awareness and training for even greater integration of CSR into purchasing practices:Our goal is to train 1,000 employees on the life cycle cost decision-making process globally and for the approach to be implemented for identified purchases.
We mitigate social and environmental risks throughout the supply chain by:
