The Product Environmental Profile (PEP) is an environmental standard created by suppliers for their electric, electronic and HVAC (heating, ventilation and air-conditioning) products. Based on reliable, quantified, multi-criteria data (impact on climate change, total energy consumption, impact on the depletion of natural resources and freshwater use), Rexel teams establish the environmental impact of the distribution, installation and use of each product. Rexel encourages its suppliers to create PEPs so that it can inform customers and guide them to the most environmentally efficient products.
