Nexans work for sustainable development
2010-06-22 – Sustainable development drives economic growth and is also a powerful vehicle for progress. In order to describe our approach to sustainable development we are today opening new pages on the web.
Access to energy is necessary worldwide for development and quality of life. The rise in population, urbanization, industrialization and economic growth experienced by many countries will cause global energy consumption to double by the year 2030.
Meeting this very high demand whilst at the same time avoiding waste and controlling the impact it has on the environment is a major challenge. It means accessing increasingly deeper deposits, promoting access to energy and making energy supplies more reliable, securing electricity supply, optimizing energy infrastructure and telecommunications networks and developing sources of renewable energy.
Nexans sees this as an opportunity to help our customers face these challenges by providing them with safer products and solutions with improved performance and which are more respectful of the environment.
Sustainable development drives economic growth and is also a powerful vehicle for progress. Our responsibility to the planet and generations to come through the development of cleaner and more economical production procedures, the improvement of quality control to reduce the amount of scrap material produced and the recycling end-of-life cables stimulates innovation, continuous improvement and competitiveness.
In order to describe our approach to sustainable development we today open our new pages on the web under the heading About Nexans / Sustainable Development. Welcome to read more.
