we recycle 85% of what we remove/take down, materials such as copper, aluminum, paper/cardboard, ballasts, light bulbs, light fixtures, styrofoam, batteries, smoke alarms, thermostats, etc
our workvans are small and compact and require much less fuel than full size vans or trucks
we schedule our jobs so that they are all near the same area in a day to reduce our carbon footprint. As the world is facing an environmental threat. Various industries are trying to control the carbon emission generated by them. The electrical manufacturing sector such as the wire and cable industry is taking numerous initiatives. They are trying to use bio composite plastic. They also increased the focus on the recycling of non-renewable resources. But, there are merits and demerits attached to every effort towards sustainability.
The industry has taken initiatives such as:
New manufacturing techniques have enabled the production of “Green Cables” and wires. So now we can transform regular electrical cables into green cables. There are two ways to do it. One is to focus on its material, and the other one is its manufacturing process. The demand for green manufactured materials is increasing due to the increase in the number of green buildings. Therefore, the green cable is the rising trend in the electrical manufacturing industry.
The materials used for manufacturing are usually climate-friendly materials. They are biodegradable and modern materials such as halogen-free jacketing. They are also not made up of the ingredients labeled as ‘hazardous’ towards the environmental authorities. The European Commission for the Environment and U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is generally referred to as identifying its sustainability.
These materials also help in getting the Canadian and U.S. listing of LHSF. As they create minimum smoke being halogen-free.
