Prysmian Group announces the launch of its Eco Cable label, a green product label for the cable industry, to support utilities and distributors strengthen their green supply chain.
The Eco Cable label can be cross-referenced and paired with additional certified sustainability protocols like the EPD (Environmental Product Declaration) and the EU Ecolabel (the environmental excellence label for products and services meeting high environmental standards throughout their life cycle). The Eco Cable label assignment is based on an automatic calculation system using recognized and measurable criteria derived from the EU Ecolabel Regulation no 66/2010 and in line with the main regulatory frameworks and requirements, with a very specific focus on cable products: carbon footprint, absence of substances of very high concern, recyclability/circularity, recycling input rate, environmental benefits and cable transmission efficiency. Prysmian Group has committed to have 20% of the product range subject to the Eco Cable criteria assessment by 2022. Eco Cable labelled products for the Energy business will be available in Italy starting from early May and will be available in Q3 in France, Spain, Germany and by year end in the Nordics region.
