In its CSR strategy, Legrand identifies, structures, and prioritises the main issues on which efforts should be focused. For the best possible response to the expectations of stakeholders and the strategic objectives of the Group, these key issues are re-evaluated on a regular basis by updating the materiality matrix. These constitute the basis of Legrand's CSR roadmap.
Key issues and CSR roadmap
A new roadmap for 2019-2021
Legrand defines and manages its CSR strategy via multi-year roadmaps. These CSR roadmaps are based on the priority CSR challenges and their measurement indicators. The current roadmap, which covers the period from 2019-2021, is Legrand's 4th CSR roadmap. It reasserts the Group's commitment to the sustainable development of its activities while presenting significant progress and ambitions compared to the previous roadmaps.
This 4th roadmap is based on a materiality assessment conducted internationally for the first time.
For better agility and reactivity, the 2019-2021 roadmap covers a period of three years. The 22 numerical targets are calculated with respect to the level achieved at the end of 2018, and are intended to be reached by the end of 2021. The annual tracking of indicators related to these priorities provides a measure of Legrand's CSR performance.
The 2019-2021 roadmap contributes even more strongly to value creation by the Group and participates fully in its integrated performance.
In addition, Legrand has set ambitious targets for 2030: raising the share of its sales generated with sustainable products, increasing the number of women in the Group's management positions and reducing the carbon footprint of its activities.
