Le Point magazine published its ranking of the most sustainable French companies.
Le Point joined forces with Statista, an independent German institute, to conduct this survey based on a panel of 2,000 companies with more than 500 employees, headquartered in France. The final score corresponds to the average of the scores obtained on three themes: environment, social and governance. The scores are calculated from surveys (of 5,000 citizens) and around 20 indicators such as the quantity of waste produced, carbon emissions or the equal pay index for men and women.
As a result, among the most responsible companies, Rexel ranks first in its sector of activity (retail and distribution) and 25th overall. These results confirm the relevance of the Group’s strategy, which places corporate responsibility at the heart of value creation for all its stakeholders.
As part of this proactive approach, Rexel committed during its 2022 Capital Markets Day to reducing by 2030, in comparison to 2016:
- 60% in absolute terms of the GHG emissions related to the use of energy by the Group’s operations (scopes 1 and 2) ;
- 45% in absolute terms of the GHG emissions related to the use of sold products (scope 3).
These objectives have been validated Net-Zero standard by the SBTi.
Rexel was also included in the CAC 40 ESG index on September 16, 2022.
Finally, in 2022, Rexel was awarded the title of “Diversity Champion” and ranked 3rd in its sector in the Capital – Statista list, following a vast survey of 25,000 employees working in companies with more than 250 employees. Representative of the active population, they were able to rate the attitude of their employer and its competitors in favor of diversity, respect for parity, non-discrimination of people according to age, origin, sexual orientation or disability. The level of the gender equality index in the company studied and the proportion of women on the Executive Committee and Board of Directors were also taken into account in the evaluation.
Rexel’s performance in terms of environmental, social and governance responsibility is thus regularly recognized and reflects the Group’s continuous efforts to implement the best practices in this area.
