Tratos has become the newest member to sign the Europacable Industry Charter, joining an elite group of European and worldwide cable manufacturers that have pledged to uphold ethical, sustainable and high quality cable development and manufacturing.
Europacable represents wire and cable manufacturers in Europe. Members include the world’s largest producers, as well as highly specialised small and medium-sized businesses from across Europe.
Ennio Bragagni Capaccini, Vice President of Tratos Group, said: “We are proud to add our name to the Industry Charter. Its principles mirror our own and we are fully committed to delivering continuous improvement in our business where we can.”
Launched in November 2015, the Charter sets out shared industry principles and objectives.
It aims for signatories to play a proactive role in monitoring and evaluating emerging issues and finding solutions that produce cables that exceed minimum requirements.
Founded in 1991, the association’s energy and communication cable manufacturer members employ around 70,000 people globally, with more than 50% based in Europe. In 2015, group members generated a turnover of more than US$22.7 billion.
As members of Europacable, Tratos, manufacturing in Italy and the UK and with bases worldwide, will receive information about relevant EU policy developments; representation at EU-level and engagement in policy processes.
The Europacable Charter acknowledges the need to meet the demands of business stakeholders, while at the same time supporting the interests of employees, customers, the wider community and the environment.
Charter signatories are committed to continuous achievement in product compliance and innovation, business ethics and social responsibility, health and safety and environment and climate change.
