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.

2019 equal pay index for men and women

In accordance with the September 5, 2018 «Professional future and equal pay for women / men» law, companies with more than 50 employees are required to publish gender pay gap index.

The index is based on the following 4 to 5 criteria:

  • the wage gap,
  • the distribution differential of individual wage increases,
  • the distribution differential of promotions (only for companies with more than 250 employees),
  • the number of employees benefiting from a wage increase upon return from maternity leave,
  • parity among the 10 highest-paid employees.

The minimum required score is 75 points out of a maximum total of 100 points. If it is not achieved, corrective measures should be implemented. Regarding the French subsidiaries of the Rexel Group in which the law is applicable, the index calculation (out of 100) yielded the following scores:

 

  2020 2019
Rexel Développement SAS, the Group’s Holding 90 89
Wage gap between women and men 35/40
Distribution differential of individual wage increases 35/35
Distribution differential of promotions N/C(1)
Number of employees benefiting from a wage increase upon return from maternity leave 15/15
Parity among the 10 highest-paid employees 5/10
Rexel France 89 89
Wage gap between women and men 39/40
Distribution differential of individual wage increases 20/20

Distribution differential of individual wage increases 20/20
Distribution differential of promotions 10/15
Number of employees benefiting from a wage increase upon return from maternity leave N/A
Parity among the 10 highest-paid employees 0/10

 

These scores confirm the credibility of the Group’s commitments towards inclusion and diversity, in line with the Equal Opportunities Agreement ratified with its social partners in 2019, both for Rexel Développement SAS and Rexel France.

Moreover, although the scores obtained are encouraging, they should not be considered as an achievement but as a first convincing step towards attaining equal pay. For the subsidiary whose score is below the minimum required by law (75 points), corrective actions will be implemented in favor of men because, in this entity, the parity gap favors women.

Thus, Rexel wishes to reaffirm its objective of excluding all discrimination and continues to work for inclusive diversity by promoting equal opportunities at all hierarchical levels.
