An important part of our purpose as a company is providing unmatched attention to our customers' known and anticipated needs through innovation.
That innovation extends to how we view our role as a socially responsible business. For us, corporate social responsibility encompasses three key areas:
We ARE transforming spaces
Every day Legrand is committed to bring power light and data to millions of spaces around the world while investing to transform the customer experience. We are driven to design products, systems and services that provide better form, better function and better experiences.
We ARE Sustainable
Supporting our associates, customers, and the environment.
At Legrand, we build sustainability into everything we do. We're committed to developing solutions that enable high performance buildings, reducing the environmental impact of our own operations and transforming how people live and work -- more safely, more comfortably, more efficiently.
Believing actions say much more than words
At Legrand, we do more than set goals, we set examples. We're committed to operational excellence because we believe that optimizing the way we manage energy, water, and waste is not only good for the environment, it's good for business.
Reaching new heights in High Performance Buildings
Legrand's innovative products and systems enable buildings to reach exceptional levels of performance, integrating and optimizing on a life cycle basis attributes that include energy conservation, environment, safety, security, durability, accessibility, cost-benefit, productivity, sustainability, functionality and operational considerations.
Along with high performance, we're committed to transparency - holding Product Environmental Profiles (PEPs) for hundreds of products - and to helping our customers attain LEED certification, offering a wide range of products that contribute to that goal.
Transforming the way people live and work
Legrand works to enhance both employee and community welfare through programs that help people enjoy healthier, more productive and more rewarding lives. Our initiatives range from building new homes for people in need to inspiring employee involvement.
Our Better Communities program supports employee volunteer and philanthropic efforts in the communities where we live and work. In order to produce the greatest possible impacts, we’ve focused our efforts on three specific causes:
By partnering with organizations like Habitat for Humanity, Building Homes for Heros, and Rebuilding Together, our volunteers help low income families, disabled individuals and veterans build and improve their homes.
By partnering with the U.S. Green Building Councils Center for Green Schools, this initiative focuses on the environmental impacts of the schools in our communities through water, water, and energy management and helps transform them into more sustainable learning environments.
By supporting non-profit organizations like the American Red Cross, we are committed to helping provide emergency assistance and disaster relief to communities in need.
We ARE Global Minded
Global experience shapes our design, innovation and performance. We are committed to the following practices:
- Ongoing focus on Operational Excellence
- Optimizing our manufacturing footprint
- Lower cost by moving products to lower cost regions
- Improve responsiveness to customers by lowering lead times
We ARE Inventors
Driven by innovation, we help bring to life spaces that meet our customers’ needs.
Our global IoT program, Eliot, brings together Legrand’s worldwide expertise to advance connectivity and intelligence in the built environment, mobilize Legrand’s capabilities around the world, speed development of Legrand connected devices and amplify communications wherever the Internet of things can enhance value for all users.
Ethics & Compliance Program
Legrand's employees and supplier partners are expected to be familiar with the tenets of this program and to be vigilant and active in complying with them.
Compliance Commitment Letter
Compliance is a core value of Legrand. Complying with the rules of business ethics is one of the Fundamental Principles of Legrand’s social responsibility. Leadership is determined to establish a culture of compliance.
