A recognized sustainable performance

Each year, numerous organizations recognize the efforts made by the Group as well as its sustainable development performance.


Social, environmental and societal information related to Rexel’s activities is assessed by an independent third party. It decides on the presence of CSR regulatory information as well as on its accuracy.
Since its arrival on the stock market in 2007, the Group’s efforts to consolidate its sustainable development approach have been recognized by independent organizations, and have enabled it to be included in several SRI (Socially Responsible Investment) indices.
