SUSTAINABILITY

RESPONSIBLE PRACTICES IN DAILY OPERATIONS To reduce or minimize General Cable’s impact on the environment, we incorporate responsible practices into our daily business operations around the world. For many years, the company has been committed to meeting or exceeding environmental regulations worldwide.  We continually strive to reduce our environmental impact and to respect and protect the environments where we live and work, from our neighborhoods to our planet.

Preserving the environment — whether by reducing our energy consumption, eliminating or substantially decreasing our use of hazardous materials, or increasing recycling — is part of our continuous improvement culture, from how we design our products to how we operate our manufacturing sites. All of our 47 manufacturing plants have facility-specific waste reduction objectives to address areas such as energy usage, greenhouse gas emissions, water usage and recycling, as well as waste and packaging reduction.  For further information, visit our new CSR website, www.generalcablecsr.com.
