Sustainability: report and responsibility


Our commitment to a low-carbon future

We’re powering a truly sustainable future for ourselves and for our customers, without compromising on quality. Together, we can take charge of innovation, to find, create and deploy solutions which build a better tomorrow for everyone.


Every day, we are committed to ensuring the sustainability of our production processes and to safeguarding the environment. We work alongside local communities to ensure that the areas in which we operate are protected and to guarantee workplace safety.

To further increase the credibility of our ambition of being a global leading player in the challenges of decarbonisation, we are increasingly committed to promoting sustainable growth for the environment and individuals. The significant progress achieved in 2022 across nearly all ESG areas confirms we are on the right path.

Our social and climate change ambitions

We seek to become a global leader in sustainability. That’s why in 2021 we set challenging new climate and social goals that promote the transition towards a low-carbon world and a more equal and inclusive working environment.

Our Climate Change Ambition seeks to position Prysmian Group as one of the main technological players in the transition to low-carbon energy.

We have adopted science-based targets aligned with the requirements of the Paris Agreement, which calls for net-zero emissions between 2035 and 2040 for those generated by internal activities (Scopes 1 and 2) and by 2050 for those generated by the value chain (Scope 3).

These targets have been approved by the Science-Based Target Initiative (SBTI).

Our Social Ambition concentrates on new 2030 commitments to improve our performance in diversity, equality and inclusion (DE&I), digital inclusion, the empowerment of communities, employee engagement and upskilling. By adopting a pro-active approach, the Group is evolving into an organisation that recognises diversity, inclusion and gender equality at all levels, committed to facilitating the empowerment of women.

Prysmian Group adheres to the UN Global Compact, the principles and spirit of which are reflected in the culture, values and practices of the group. Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) values are deeply embedded in the Group’s DNA, inspiring its strategic priorities and influencing day-by-day behaviours.

Prysmian Group is highly committed to supporting the development of greener and smarter power grids. Submarine cables are, and will be, an essential part of this development.


Prysmian has been involved over the years in many milestone projects across the globe, contributing to the development of entire communities. The focus of the new campaign – realized in collaboration with Bloomberg – is to showcase the work of organisations such as Prysmian Group, who are leading global thought and action on the critical climate issues of our time. We aim to become a thought leader in our industry and a positive contributor to solving environmental challenges.

This is the sixth year of our Sustainability Report, a consolidated disclosure of facts and stats, with specific reference to environmental, social and staff-related issues, respect for human rights and the fight against bribery and corruption. The document is prepared in accordance with GRI Sustainability Reporting Standards; we have reported our efforts in several fields, from the protection of the environment and health and safety at work, to business ethics and integrity.
