Prysmian Group continues to lead in sustainability
Thanks to positive results achieved in 2017, the Group has confirmed its position in the main international sustainability indices and assessments, including FTSE4Good, Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI) and CDP (Carbon Disclosure Project).
Over the past year, emissions of ozone-depleting substances decreased by 5% in 2017 (649 Kton compared to 684 Kton in 2016). Prysmian’s sustainability-related activities included continuing research into submarine cables that can be installed at depths up to 3,000 metres, development of technology for eliminating lead from energy cables and 525 kV HVDC cable systems with P-Laser technology, which allows for the creation of recyclable and eco-sustainable cables. Within Telecom, FlexTube cable set another industry record with 3,456 fibres, reducing the impact of civil engineering works during installation.
