Sonepar Publishes its Human Rights Policy


As the world leader in the B-to-B distribution of electrical products and related solutions and services, Sonepar is an influential player throughout its value chain. 

Sonepar is committed to providing a working environment that ensures all associates are treated fairly, equally and decently. Sonepar is a responsible stakeholder in society, a good neighbor and a concerned citizen, committed to the communities in which it conducts business. 

The Group has drafted its first Human Rights Policy to further detail its commitments.  

“As a member of the UN Global Compact and consistent with our Code of Conduct, Sonepar is committed to respecting human rights and protecting the environment. We believe that everyone has the right to be treated with dignity and respect. It is everyone’s responsibility everywhere, every day, in everything we do,” stated Philippe Delpech, CEO.  

Olivier Catherine, General Counsel added: “Sonepar commits to uphold internationally recognized human rights standards throughout its operations. We expect and require our business partners to do the same.”. 

Earlier this year, Sonepar also published a Conflict Minerals statement, outlining our commitment to responsible sourcing, as an important part of the Group’s CSR strategy.
