Sustainable
products

Our cabling provides superior quality while minimizing environmental impact.

Our aim is to continue to set the industry benchmark for product sustainability in the telecommunications industry

We achieve this both by continually improving our products’ energy efficiency, and by providing transparent information about the environmental and health impacts of our products.

Energy-efficiency

Our products are designed to help customers reach their sustainability goals. Superior Essex Power-over-Ethernet cables are the most energy-efficient on the market, saving money by reducing power loss and overall energy consumption by up to 97%*.

* Compared with a traditional AC system.

Transparency

Superior Essex is the only communications cable manufacturer with certified Red List free products. This means they contain none of the 800 chemicals classed as most harmful to the environment or people by the International Living Future Institute. Our Red List Free products can contribute to your Living Building Challenge, LEED v4 and WELL building projects.

We were the first communications cable manufacturer to publish detailed information about these impacts in independently verified Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs) and Health Product Declarations (HPDs). Currently 55 of our products have HPDs and EPDs. Our CAT 6 LSHF product was one of the first products in the market to achieve third-party verification status on our HPD, proving our continued commitment to integrity and assurance.

Both EPDs and HPDs contribute to LEED v4 Building Product Disclosure and Optimization credits (EPD Option 1 and Material Ingredients Option 1). HPDs can also contribute to projects achieving the WELL building standard.

Our goal is continuous improvement. Stay tuned for how our our products have reduced their total life cycle impacts and optimized in 2019!
