West Hartford headquarters announced as Better Buildings, Better Plants “Showcase” site.
Legrand announced a more than 20% reduction in energy intensity as the result of its first year as part of a Department of Energy (DOE) program to promote energy efficiency, realize energy and cost savings and spur job creation for communities across the United States.
In its role as a manufacturer of electrical and data networking products for residential, commercial and industrial buildings, last year Legrand committed to be among the first of a select number of industrial companies to join the Better Buildings, Better Plants Challenge. The company pledges not only aggressive efforts on energy conservation and efficiency, but to report and share its results with the DOE and the public.
The Challenge was announced by President Obama in February of 2011 as part of the Better Buildings initiative. +
