Siemon's Ongoing Commitment to Sustainability

Siemon's Ongoing Commitment to Sustainability

The Siemon Company ensures implementation of environmental policies through a global environmental management system certified according to ISO 14001. The ISO 14001 environment management system is a management cycle consisting of planning, implementation, controlling and management review including corrective actions.

Siemons_Ongoing_Commitment_to_Sustainability_1"Siemon is committed to protecting and preserving our environment through continual improvement in the design and manufacture of high quality copper and fibre network cabling system components. 

Siemon’s Environmental Management System ensures compliance to applicable laws, regulations, permits, pollution prevention practices and company policies in the selection, use and disposal of all materials used in the office areas and production processes. The Siemon Company will establish ongoing environmental objectives and targets and will continue our waste minimization efforts in all aspects of our business.”


Environmental Initiatives include: 

  • Environmental management programs, focusing on energy efficiency and lean manufacturing at all global operations
  • Waste reduction program – featuring progressive recycling and waste management
  • Responsible sourcing of materials and ROHS (reduction of hazardous substances) compliance
  • Active support of community initiatives including greenway development and forestland conservation
  • Sourcing power from renewable and sustainable sources for business initiatives


Siemon's Commitment to Packaging Efficiency

Siemon maintains its ongoing effort to ensure that all product packaging is designed to use the minimum amount of materials necessary to protect product in shipping and installation. You may not have realized that all materials used to package Siemon products are recyclable. Siemon sets the example for the industry- it is possible, and feasible, for all packaging materials to be recyclable or biodegradable. Recent changes include elimination of styrofoam packing on all Siemon cabling products, reduction of excess material in poly-bagged product and more efficient bulk-packing options for project orders. Very impressive! 

To further add to Siemon's commitment to the environment, all Siemon packaging can be returned by the customer to Siemon’s North American headquarters for fully documented recycling. Where transport logistics make this an inefficient option, Siemon will work with Siemon Certified Installers and suppliers to identify local recycling options and provide guidance on handling packaging waste.
