Project objectives

Legrand is committed to reduce global Scope 1&2 emissions by 10% per year between 2022 and 2024: the project objective is to reduce emissions related to electricity consumed in our headquarters.

Detailed project description

Installation of 550 kWp photovoltaic panels on the roof of the carpark of Legrand headquarters in Limoges.

Emission scope(s)

on which the project has a significant impact

Scope 1

Direct emissions generated by the company's activity.

Scope 2

Indirect emissions associated with the company's electricity and heat consumption.

Scope 3

Emissions induced (upstream or downstream) by the company's activities, products and/or services in its value chain.

Emission Removal

Carbon sinks creation, (BECCS, CCU/S, …)

Avoided Emissions

Emissions avoided by the activities, products and/or services in charge of the project, or by the financing of emission reduction projects.

Scope 2 -Installation of solar panels.

  • Quantification : 34 tons CO2 avoided per year

Legrand headquarters consume yearly 4700 MWh in average. Solar panels will generate up to 572 MWh (12% of total electricity consumed). Taking into account a French national emission factor of 60 gCO2/kWh, it will represent a reduction in CO2 emission of 34 tonnes per year.
