Journey to zero waste

We are committed to eliminating waste and have a strong focus on the reuse of cable scrap and other materials.  Across the organization, people are reducing the use of the landfill and current state is that use of landfill constitutes only 4% of the total waste treatment processes of NKT. Efficient material utilization has been a long-term focus enabling a high utilization. 

Eco-design and innovation

The need for new technology is essential for a low carbon future as the global power grids are constantly expanding, driven by megatrends such as urbanization, decentralization and a growing demand for electricity produced from renewable energy sources.

As a technology leader in the power cable industry, we are continuously developing new technologies to enable more efficient, reliable and sustainable power transmission based on environmentally friendly materials.   

Materials development

The environmental impact and carbon footprint are core considerations when we develop new products and solutions. A key focus in this development is to design for sustainable manufacturing processes, efficient material usage, long product lifespan and potential for decommissioning and recycling.

We are investigating, developing and testing new materials on an ongoing basis with constant focus on minimizing the environmental impact of our products and solutions.
