WORKING CLOSELY WITH TRANSPORT COMPANIES Today, most of Rexel s logistics flows are outsourced to transport specialists. Therefore, it is impor- tant for Rexel to select and col- laborate with carriers that comply with certain environmental guide- lines concerning their vehicles performance (engines, EURO stan- dards, particle filters, fuels, etc.) and maintenance, as well as driver training and regular reporting of performance indicators.

MANAGING THE CAR FLEET The business travel inherent to Rexel s commercial activities rep- resents another area of improve- ment in the Group s environmental

policy. Most of the subsidiaries have a fleet of cars, either owned or leased, whose long-term man- agement allows the limitation of fuel consumption and its associat- ed emissions. For the past sever- al years, the Group has been im- plementing framework contracts to streamline the company s fleet of vehicles and improve its envi- ronmental performance. Thanks to partnerships signed with two leasing companies and five au- tomotive manufacturers, Rexel supports its subsidiaries in ap- plying this policy and encourages the monitoring of environmental performance indicators such as fuel consumption and CO2 emis- sions per kilometer. Employees are asked to choose their vehi- cles from a limited number of models selected for their perfor- mance. The goal is to reduce fuel consumption by 5% every year. In 2014, 24% of the European fleet was renewed with vehicles whose average rate is 105g CO2/km. In addition, hybrid vehicles are now a growing part of Rexel s fleet.
