Customer Centric solutions that don’t cost the earth

Quality and innovation are the hallmarks of everything we do. Why? So we can fulfil the needs of our customers today and anticipate their needs for tomorrow. We’re committed to being at the customer’s side at every stage: from understanding their specific needs, through to execution completion and delivery of a project.

But it doesn’t end there. We believe the future of cutting-edge cable technology is sustainable. How will we achieve this? Through a commitment to developing products and processes that minimise environmental impact.

Environmental responsibility in action

Every day, we champion efficient use of natural resources, we optimise our logistics flows and we practise responsible waste management. Wherever we operate in the world, we create close relationships with local communities to help us understand and mitigate the impact of our projects.

We participate in the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP), an international initiative aiming to help meet the Kyoto Protocol's targets for worldwide reduction in greenhouse gases. See our 2015 Sustainability Report for more details. Or, for a quick overview of our environmental progress, download Prysmian Group Environmental Indicators.

But we don’t stop there.
Significant investment is made in the search for, and development of, sustainable products. We want to make tomorrow’s world better. Starting today.

Our HSE strategy is leading the way

And we’re succeeding. How do we know? Our Health and Safety Executive (HSE) routinely checks our compliance (at both international and local level) with legislation covering health and safety at work standards, energy consumption, waste management, water usage and greenhouse gas emissions.

Local organisations are able to implement their programmes of improvement and investment with regard to the specific nature of their manufacturing sector and geographical area.

Not only does this help us guarantee the wellbeing of employees and respect for the environment but it also allows our senior management to analyse and assess our achievements in this area and define objectives for improvements at Group level.
