Sustainability as a strategy: our contribution to a more eco-friendly world
For LEONI, sustainability is an integral part of Group policy. We were the first cable manufacturer in the world to develop a holistic concept for “green technology” with regard to our strategy for products and services. Our goal is to be an innovative manufacturer of cables for environmental technologies.
Dwindling resources and climate change are making sustainability one of the most immediate challenges of our time. We need energy-saving and environmentally friendly processes, products and applications. LEONI’s “green technology” strategy is a pioneer in the field of sustainability. The concept covers all developments, products, system solutions and services that make the use of energy more efficient and easier on resources, thereby reducing emissions and pollution of the environment.
The strategy itself encompasses three dimensions across the entire process chain, extending from the use of environmentally friendly raw materials through highly efficient processes to specific products for green applications.
Our aim is to further increase the proportion of low-emission, environmentally compatible raw materials in our cable products as well as to raise the ability to recycle the processed materials and components.
We are continuously working on optimising resource efficiency in our manufacturing processes by deploying energy efficient machinery and implementing heat recovery measures. More and more facilities in our global production network are environmentally certified to the ISO 14001 standard.
