ECO CABLE, green inside

We provide products that are the green life blood that brings energy to homes, infrastructures and cities around the world.

With a business strategy consistent with the UN Sustainable Development Goals, we strive to be green inside. We express this through products that when installed in homes, infrastructures and cities around the world, make these just as green inside.

ECO CABLE is the first green label in the cable industry and vouches for the greenness of our cables.

The first in the cable industry

ECO CABLE uses measurable and known assessment criteria to summarize the contribution that cables can provide in terms of climate change effect, paving the way for the cable industry to be included into eco or green labeling systems.

On the same page as our customers


We aim to share the same green language as our customers, bringing to their supply chains products that meet measurable and recognized criteria, in a perfect fit with a circular economy.

ECO CABLE, Green Inside

Six measurable and known criteria

To be ECO CABLE-labelled, each cable family has to pass a rating process based on the following criteria: Carbon Footprint (calculated according to “cradle-to-gate” approach and combined with other parameters to achieve full “cradle-to-grave” carbon footprint); Substances of Very High Concern (absence of substances that are carcinogenic, mutagenic, toxic for reproduction, or hazardous for the environment); Recyclability/Circularity (materials used in cables are potentially recyclable or products themselves are potentially fully recyclable); Recycling Input Rate (presence of recycled material in a cable, both purchased from external suppliers and reused by Prysmian Group itself); Environmental Benefits (low-carbon enabling products, CPR compliant cables and cables used for green energy sources); Cable Transmission Efficiency (the more efficient the cable, the more sustainable its performance).

Our Target


ECO CABLE is our pledge to provide transparent and clear indications and information, using recognized criteria, on the greenness of our cables based on our three key drivers: SUSTAINABILITY, RELIABILITY and QUALITY.
