Rexel has developed procedures, tools, and resources with the goal of better managing and controlling its environmental impact
This approach is organized in three levels:
An Environmental Charter is disseminated among the Group’s subsidiaries and is regularly updated. The document explains Rexel’s three major commitments in this regard: Improve the environmental performance of its buildings, reduce the environmental footprint of its operations, and develop and promote energy-efficient solutions.
In order to quantify its environmental impact and progression, Rexel has a centralized reporting system. This precious management tool fosters continuous improvement of the Group’s performance as well as information sharing between subsidiaries.
The reporting reference document relies on internationally recognized standards, such as those of the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) version 4 or of the Greenhouse Gas Protocol (GHG Protocol). The reporting procedures and results are audited and validated every year by an independent third-party organization.
Reporting comprises a series of key performance indicators that provide a comprehensive vision of Rexel’s environmental footprint. These data enable the observation of changes and progress in every area of activity, subsidiary by subsidiary. A synthesis is then sent to each country to allow the Group’s entities to situate themselves with respect to each other.
