As the crucially important COP26 approaches, Legrand has decided to join the "We Mean Business" coalition committed to lowering greenhouse gas emissions. The Group has signed a letter addressed to the governments of G20 member states reminding them of the need to intensify action towards reducing global emissions.
On this occasion, Legrand underlines its own commitment to cutting its C02 emissions and achieving carbon neutrality by 2050, a strategy in line with the most ambitious objective of the Paris Agreement aimed at limiting the rise in temperatures to 1.5°C.
Benoît Coquart, Legrand CEO, stated: "Signing this letter sends a strong signal to the G20 to take action, while providing a reminder of Legrand's long-standing pledge to respond daily to environmental, societal, and technological challenges."
