Rexel first appeared in the FTSE4Good index series in 2011 and has remained listed ever since thanks to the Group’s continuous work to improve its corporate, social and environmental standards, namely; helping its customers optimize their energy consumption, improving the environmental impact of its operations, engaging with its employees on a daily basis to ensure their well-being, and focusing its community involvement on helping people to win the battle against fuel poverty.
In the latest assessment, Rexel received the highest rating possible for the criteria of climate change, labor standards and corporate governance. The Group also scored highly on health and safety.
Commenting on the good news, Rudy Provoost, Chairman and CEO of Rexel Group, said:
“The benchmark for ESG standards is constantly moving as socially and environmentally conscious investors become increasingly discerning in their investment choices, with growing demand for ever greater transparency. Rexel’s approach to corporate social responsibility is based on a continuous improvement process and we are delighted that the Group’s efforts have been recognized for the 6th year running and we remain a constituent of the FTSE4Good Index.”
Rexel is also listed in the Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI) Europe, Euronext Vigeo Eurozone 120 Index, Ethibel Sustainability Index Excellence Europe, as well as several STOXX indices (Global ESG Leaders series, EURO Sustainability and Europe Sustainability). Rexel discloses its CO2 emissions reduction strategy annually to the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP), a UK based organization which works with companies to publicly disclose their greenhouse gas emissions and is supported by 820 institutional investors globally.
