Nexans, a long-standing player in the world’s sustainable electrification, intends to be carbon neutral by 2030, the company said at its inaugural Climate Day event on Sept. 22.

Nexans plans to achieve carbon neutrality through a clearly defined roadmap which includes a 4.2% average annual reduction of company greenhouse gas emissions; 100% of production sites certified ISO 14001; 100% of production waste to be recycled; 100% of R&D projects to be dedicated to energy efficiency and energy transition, promoting eco-design and low carbon offers; optimization of logistical flows by using multi-modal transport and shorter delivery routes; 100% of Nexans cable drums to be connected using IoT technologies and recyclable; 100% of Nexans employee automobile fleet to switch to either hybrid or electric vehicles; use of renewable energy via local production or the purchase of decarbonized energy for all locations; and deployment of energy efficiency solutions at all sites.

In light of the commitment set out by the European Green Deal and the Paris agreements to set a limit of 1.5°C for global warming by 2030, Nexans said it is more committed than ever to taking concrete action to fight global warming.

“Our commitment to carbon neutrality concerns all aspects of our company, from manufacturing products, developing innovations and solutions, managing daily operations, to the use of raw materials and working habits. All Nexans teams are mobilized and fully engaged, both individually and collectively, as the success of our commitment is at the heart of our corporate management philosophy of 3P’s: people, planet [and] profit,” Christopher Guérin, CEO of Nexans, said.
