Each one of Rexel’s sustainable development pillars is translated into specific actions guided by the appropriate tools.
The Rexel Environmental Charter
Rexel has developed an Environmental Charter whose goal is to specify the Group’s environmental commitments and involve employees. The Group also encourages the deployment of environmental management systems (EMS), defining procedures designed to control the environmental impact of its activities, and assists local teams with their certification procedures.
In the social and societal fields, an Ethics Guide regroups the Group’s requirements regarding ethics, transparency and the fight against corruption. In each country and banner, an ethics officer has the task of answering requests or questions from Rexel’s stakeholders, employees or partners. A Community Involvement Charter has also been implemented to build the Group’s and its banners’ approach around a unique shared commitment: improve access to energy efficiency for all.
Environmental and social reporting
As a responsible company, Rexel conducts annual environmental and social reporting, which is an essential tool for monitoring its sustainable development policy. This reporting, whose results are published on a yearly basis, covers up to 100% of the Group’s sales.
Awareness raising initiatives
The Group conducts many awareness raising and training initiatives on sustainable development issues (environment, ethics, safety, etc.). Since 2015, the campaign “Our safety. Our responsibility.” has been implemented throughout the Group’s sites. Promoting ten safety principles shared with all employees, it calls for individual as well as collective responsibility.
