Rexel is 1st in its sector and 11th worldwide in the new “Global 100” Corporate Knights ranking of the most sustainable companies
Rexel ranks 1st in its sector and 11th worldwide in the “Global 100” ranking of Corporate Knights, a media and research center specializing in CSR. Every year, this ranking rewards the top 100 companies in terms of sustainable development that succeed in reconciling social responsibility and financial performance.
This ranking recognizes the Group’s ongoing commitment to CSR. Rexel was also recently recognized as a “Diversity Leader” by the Financial Times and ranked 1st in its sector in the CSR Le point – Statista ranking.
According to Toby Heaps, CEO of Corporate Knights: “The companies in the ranking, at the time of the Covid-19 crisis, understood that environmental performance was going to be a success factor for future recovery and economic recovery strategies”. This applies to the Rexel Group, which further strengthened its environmental commitments at the height of the health crisis, notably by announcing new industrial and R&D investments, alongside a hundred or so companies united within the French Business Climate Pledge. Overall, companies will spend at least €73 billion over the period 2020-2023 to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
To develop its 2021 Global 100 ranking, Corporate Knights followed a rigorous assessment of 8,080 companies with more than US$1 billion in revenues. The assessment is based on up to 24 environmental, social, financial and governance key performance indicators.
