LIMOGES, France — Legrand has obtained ISO 50001 certification for its Energy Management System. This certification covers Legrand’s head office as well as 21 manufacturing plants and 3 logistical facilities located in France, Hungary, Italy, the Netherlands, Poland, Spain, and the UK. Legrand is the first European manufacturer to achieve multi-site ISO 50001 certification across a wide European scope.
The achievement of ISO 50001 certification is consistent with Legrand’s CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) strategy, as its 2014-2018 roadmap already includes a target of reducing energy intensity by at least 10%. It also illustrates Legrand’s determination to respond to the major challenges inherent in the energy transition by promoting solutions and services for greater energy efficiency in buildings.
Legrand’s European Energy Management System (EnMS) builds on its energy policy (itself perfectly consistent with the Group’s Environment Charter), on its existing ISO 14001 environment management systems—close to 90% of the Group’s sites are certified ISO 14001-compliant, as well as on the various initiatives and feedback reported by its sites. The EnMS constitutes a tool of structural importance for the Group, which will enable an ongoing improvement in its energy efficiency by harnessing Legrand’s offerings to help measure and analyze site energy consumption patterns so as to reduce their energy intensity.
At a time of lively debate around the issue of the energy transition and the COP21 climate conference, achieving this certification demonstrates Legrand’s firm commitment to the struggle to curb climate change.
