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. In 2020, we successfully developed of mechanical recycling of cross-linked polyethylene (XLPE) as the first company in the power cable industry. The recycled materials from production is given a second life in new applications and products such as flowerpots, cable drums and construction material.
