For several years now, Sonepar has given priority treatment to sustainable development, with concrete action as a primary focus. The Group’s approach spans four crucial themes:
- Staying abreast of the energy transition and population trends
- Reducing our environmental impact
- Serving local communities
- Promoting Corporate Social Responsibility to take good care of the men and women who work for the Group
Sonepar encourages creativity, adaptability and process improvements—without losing sight of specific local conditions.
Since 2011, Sonepar has been holding an annual Group-wide sustainable development event called Energy & Sustainability Weeks (ESW, formerly Energy Saving Week). In the course of those two weeks, Group companies in different countries implement a variety of initiatives to promote energy-saving products and solutions, raise awareness and educate customers and associates about energy efficiency, recycling and more.
