General Cable's Green Initiative Green

New Green Initiative symbol recognizes General Cable's role and responsibility in promoting sustainability. The symbol also reflects our commitment to achieving industry-leading standards and responding proactively to environmental global issues.

Environmental, Health & Safety (EH&S) Policy:

General Cable is committed to producing and marketing products in an environmentally sound and responsible manner.  We will manage our facilities, processes and materials in a way that meets or exceeds regulatory requirements and that minimizes risk to our associates, the public and communities where we operate.

We will work to continually strengthen our Environmental, Health and Safety (EH&S) performance by:

• Defining and developing a company culture where a concern for the environment, health and safety are established through example, involvement, recognition and training;

• Measuring EH&S performances against effective management systems, regulatory requirements and established annual goals and objectives;

• Analyzing the EH&S aspects of all new processes, materials and equipment;

• Improving our management systems in order to respond promptly to the findings of regularly scheduled internal and third-party EH&S audits;

• Controlling and reducing environmental impact through material selection and use, implementation of best management practices, process improvements and recycling.

NEW 17 FREE Halogen-free Riser Cables

GenSPEED® 5000 with 17 FREE™ Category 5e Cable

GenSPEED® 6 with 17 FREE™ Category 6 Cable


GenSPEED® Brand's new line of 17 FREE UL-Rated Category 6 and 5e riser cables will be offered at competitive pricing and feature substantiated green properties, and may qualify for LEED credits under the U.S. Green Building Council's new LEED Pilot Credit 2 program.

With the removal of halogens, which fall into Group 17 of the Periodic Table, this revolutionary 17 FREE line of GenSPEED Riser cables does not contain any chlorine, fluorine, bromine or iodine, reducing the overall toxicity of the cable and truly resulting in a more environmentally-friendly “green” product.

Hubbell Sustainability Initiative




The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency defines sustainability as "meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of the future generations to meet their own needs." In 2010, Hubbell announced HSI – the Hubbell Sustainability Initiative – which is an enterprise-wide commitment to develop sustainable products and business practices.

The HSI mission is to:

Achieve an ongoing culture of environmental responsibility with our employees, community, and industry implementing educational programs and sustainable practices.


Hitachi Green Initiative

In 2008, HCM released its ECO™ Category 6 cable. Using knowledge gained while developing its Supra 10G™ Category 6A cable, HCM was able to engineer a Category 6 cable that would significantly exceed the TIA/EIA- 568-B.2 performance requirements, yet did not contain the internal pair separator, or filler, typical of Category 6 4-pair cables. Removal of the internal filler resulted in a number of environmentally beneficial characteristics. Although some of the environmental benefits were predicted, some were mere by-products of the change.

At Corning Cable Systems, we proudly recognize our responsibility as a global citizen. We continually leverage our financial and human resources to engage in meaningful acts that support community development and improve the quality of life for everyone in the communities we call home.

Our mission is to support "green" initiatives through every aspect of our business, including our product offerings, manufacturing processes, packaging initiatives and industry leadership, and to help our customers achieve the same. Optical fiber solutions, such as Corning Cable Systems’ LANscape® Solutions for premises networks and Evolant® Solutions for carrier networks, are inherently environmentally friendly, requiring less energy for powering and cooling than copper systems.

However, our commitment to the environment goes beyond products. For example, Corning Cable Systems employ a variety of packaging and manufacturing process initiatives with the vision of a healthier environment for future generations. We also educate customers on the relationship between structured cabling systems and the LEED® certification program.
