Respecting the Group’s commitment on human rights
We are committed to respecting the basic human rights and dignity of all our employees. As societies around the globe are struggling to find the right balance between economic prosperity and the common good, it is more important than ever that as a global enterprise, we at Legrand observe the highest standards for employee welfare and equity while pursuing our business goals. In some cases, this means going above and beyond local laws and social norms.
To that end, in this roadmap, our goal is 100% of Legrand facilities respect human rights.

Practicing community involvement
In the 2019-2021 roadmap, Legrand Group expanded its charitable giving strategy into each region. Specifically, the goal is to deploy a sponsorship strategy in local communities in 75% of countries where the Legrand Group is present.
The Better Communities program launched in North and Central America in 2014 has been a core inspiration for this priority and has met and exceeded the expectations for this goal three years early, but that doesn't mean our work is complete.
Our Better Communities program, which is focused on Better Homes, Better Schools, and Better Recovery, provides unique opportunities for our employees to get more involved in our local communities. Our program encourages employees to take paid time off (up to 16 hours) to volunteer with one of our community partners, and encourages our businesses to donate products and funds.
Our better communities committee members, site captains and volunteers make this program a success and they take great pride in the homes they have restored, the schools they have improved, and the disaster recovery assistance they have provided - all in quest to better lives in the communities where they live and work. It is anticipated that the program will continue to gain momentum and achieve greater impact aligning with our core competencies as a company.
