A new ambition

Beyond its direct relationships with its suppliers and clients, Rexel is firmly establishing its approach as part of its ecosystem as a whole, taking into account the expectations of all of its stakeholders, both external and internal. This global approach guarantees the longevity of the value co-creation process the Group is committed to. In regard to environmental performance, Rexel is working on developing new carbon emission reduction goals aligned with the IPCC s* guidelines for limiting the average increase in temperature on the planet to 2°C by the end of the century. Concerning the development of energy management solutions, partnerships with suppliers will be strengthened in order to offer products and solutions that deliver a constantly improving environment, health, and safety performance with the ultimate aim of establishing a responsible, certified offering.

To achieve this new ambition, the Group wants to turn its 27,000 employees into corporate social responsibility ambassadors. Numerous tools are available to help involve them in the Group s sustainable performance:. The Ecodays initiative is a key tool for raising awareness of sustainable development issues within the company, as well as a means of conveying information about the Group s sustainable development policy. This collaborative platform contributes to reaching a goal set by Rexel: inform and raise awareness among all of its employees by 2020. . Sustainable development or energy efficiency training programs are offered to all employees via the Rexel Academy in the form of e-learning modules. These training programs will be enhanced to support the Group s ambition.
