We are creating  an Innovation Ecosystem that is capable of generating a constant flow of innovation through a network of clients, suppliers, and the world’s top universities.

Creating eco-friendly products that have an increasingly lower impact on the environment is at the core of our activity. This is how we guarantee that our continued effort in being sustainable towards our business, the environment, and society will carry on into the future.

 

 

 

Our team of technicians for research and development apply the principles of sustainability at all levels of a project, from the design of cables to their production, from technical assistance to the establishment of innovative solutions.

Our engineers use advanced tools to validate the performance of our cables by simulating their behaviour in various applications before even proceeding to the prototyping phase.

This process helps to maximize the effectiveness of the work executed in our labs, avoiding unnecessary repetitions in the production line and therefore also achieving a reduction in the consumption of material and energy.

 

Our E3X Technology received the Gold Innovation prize at the Edison Awards in the energy and sustainability category since the technology uses a new coating which lowers the temperature of the power line, leading to less power loss and dissipation.

Our fibre optic cables are becoming denser as we pack more fibre into a smaller space. This saves on installation costs.

Alesea is our just-launched IoT solution that offers near real-time information on cable drum location, drum use and the amount of cable available, keeping cable waste and scrap at a minimum.

Our aramid-armored submarine cables have been redesigned to be lighter than their predecessors, enabling installation ships to reduce the number of voyages for each project.

Our targets for a more sustainable product

Designing and manufacturing sustainable products is  the concrete action through which we can meet our own targets and do our part to protect the environment . Here are some tools used in order to achieve our sustainability goals :
 
Analyse the carbon footprint of our products in order to measure the improvement in terms of environmental impact starting from the design phase. Until 2018, 60% of our product families were assessed in terms of environmental impact (CFP and potential recyclability) , we are now working towards 100%
In order to support circular economy, we monitor the percentage of  production materials that are potentially recyclable at the end-of-life phase of the cable. . The percentage is consistently around 85%
We are committed to re-using drums in order to lower our impact on product packaging.

We analyse the environmental impact of  existing products and consider the CFP contribution due to  materials and processes used.

We have also developed an offline method to optimize cable design to adhere to environmental parameters.

This feature allows the product designer to evaluate various alternatives to the materials normally used and assess the impact that these different versions might have on the  cable CFP and  its potential recyclability.
