In past decades, organizations of varying sizes brought ideas of sustainable enterprise to public discourse. Initially, some propositions appeared conceptually vague. Could a technology organization of size and scale measurably demonstrate continuous, yet thoroughly efficient change? The answer is a resounding yes. Superior Essex is leading sustainability as a business imperative in many significant ways. We are the only communications cable manufacturer with certified Red List free materials in our products. This means they are devoid of the 800 chemicals listed as most harmful to humans and the environment by the International Living Future Institute, creators of the Living Building Challenge.
Red List chemicals include well-known toxins, including Bisphenol A (BPA) and chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs). Our Red List Free products can contribute to your Living Building Challenge, LEED v4 and WELL building projects. By choosing Superior Essex, customers are choosing sustainability in action. From lighting, to AV, to full Digital Building solutions, Super Essex communications products are leading the way. A clear example: the PowerWise®, Power over Ethernet cables are the most energy efficient on the market. Additionally, Superior Essex is the first telecommunications product manufacturer to publish extensive findings on environmental impact in independently verified Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs) and Health Product Declarations (HPDs) – in reports and case studies.
Product development and implementation are also brought to life more resolutely by sustainable manufacturing. Being the first and only communications cable company to be certified in Zero Waste to Landfill is a clear testament to the Superior Essex commitment to the use of recyclable and renewable materials.
The goals of achieving continued technological development with environmental balance are critical for both ecological and human capital. Sustainability is not just good for business, it’s a guiding principle for meeting the needs of partners and customers – now and the distant future. Environmental harmony and continued innovation are not disparate concepts. Indeed, a true vision of technological advancement is steered by wellness.
