2014-2018 Group priority Aim to enable 800,000 additional people to benefit from access to electricity, whether directly or indirectly. Key performance indicator : the number of people with direct or indirect access to electricity under the partnership with Électriciens

W entire villages, to improve the daily lives of families through sustainable access to electricity using renewable energy. Since 2007, Legrand has contributed to the action by Électriciens Sans Frontières in more than 200 projects for access to electricity or emergency aid in Africa, Asia and Latin America, in roughly 38 countries (including Argentina, Benin, Bolivia, Burkina Faso, Cambodia, Central African Republic, Chad, Congo, Ethiopia, Haiti, India, Indonesia, Laos, Madagascar, Mali, Mauritania, Nepal, Niger, Pakistan, Peru, Senegal and Vietnam). In 2018, Legrand continued its support for Électriciens Sans Frontières through 25 projects across 15 countries in Africa, Asia and South America, including help developing vocational education for electricians working in the installation and maintenance of domestic and industrial equipment at the Diofior vocational training center in Senegal, providing electricity to a primary school, clinic, ice-cube production facility and mobile phone recharging unit in Nazoumé, Bénin, and providing electricity to the health center in Fégui, Mali. In December 2017, Legrand signed a partnership agreement at the French Ministry of Europe and Foreign Affairs, in the presence of the Minister, Chairman of Électriciens Sans Frontières Hervé Gouyet and nine other companies, for the management of humanitarian emergencies in association with the French Crisis and Support Center. The involvement of the 10 industrial partners, whose financial, logistical, material and human resources will be mobilized by Électriciens Sans Frontières, will make it possible to conduct emergency relief operations in the best conditions and to strengthen emergency response capabilities. The Group’s partnership with Électriciens Sans Frontières relies particularly on the sales teams of the Group’s French brands, who take action to raise money for the “Electricity for Health and Education in Africa” program. Since 2011, no fewer than 73 initiatives have been organized by the teams in support of these programs, including the sale of products where a percentage of the proceeds go to the NGO, promoting Électriciens Sans Frontières at trade fairs, sporting events (tournaments, marathons) and gala dinners, as well as concerts and a Haitian craft fair. All the proceeds go to Électriciens Sans Frontières. This has helped to pay for electrification projects in schools and clinics, mainly in Burkina Faso, Togo, Senegal and Madagascar. In 2018, three operations were organized involving some 450 people from Legrand’s sales teams and from the Group’s distributors and installers.
