Sustainable development


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.


Sonepar Group entities around the world market energy-saving and energy efficiency products under the BlueWay label. Those products are carefully selected to meet needs in lighting, heating, ventilation and air conditioning, industry, home automation and other areas.

Helping to reduce our environmental footprint, enhancing energy efficiency and cutting back energy use are central to the program.


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.

Every year, our country organizations have taken a growing number of initiatives. In 2016, several hundred were carried out.

The last edition of the Energy & Sustainability Weeks took place in May 2017 (1-12).
