Superior Essex Awarded for Excellence in Sustainability Industry

Superior Essex has again been recognized for leadership and quality products in the sustainable building industry. Ahead of our exhibition for Greenbuild 2018, we’re proud to announce the following awards we’ve received over the past few weeks, including:

  • Recognition as a 2018 Waste Fit Champion from Rubicon Global and Sustainable Brands
  • A 2019 Top 10 Product award from BuildingGreen
  • The 2018 Manufacturing Visionary award from the International Living Future Institute

Rubicon Global is a technology company that provides waste, recycling, and smart city solutions to businesses and governments worldwide. Rubicon partnered with Sustainable Brands to judge Waste Fit award submissions. The award winners were judged based on their emphasis in waste reduction practices implemented in their respective organizations, circular economy practices and the impact these solutions are having on their business. Phil Metro, of Superior Essex’s Hoisington, KS manufacturing facility was recognized for his amazing contributions to execute Hoisington’s Zero Waste to Landfill program. The Hoisington facility is still the only zero waste to landfill certified site of its kind, and with this award, continues to be recognized as a model for sustainable manufacturing practices. For more information on these awards, see press release and announcement from Rubicon and Sustainable Brands, here.

Superior Essex’s Red List Free Products and Digital Building Technology application were recognized as a Top 10 Product by BuildingGreen, the leading resource in sustainable architecture and design. This award grants Superior Essex Communication Cables this prestigious distinction as a best-in-class trendsetter, and sustainability leader for 2019. For more information on these products, see

Finally, the International Living Future Institute, creator of the Living Building Challenge and other leading sustainable product certifications, has awarded Superior Essex with the Manufacturing Visionary Award for 2018, citing our commitment to the ILFI’s mission and our leadership as a manufacturer of products that contribute to health and wellness in the environment. Superior Essex led an effort to collaborate a group of 40 leading building product manufacturers to challenge the architect and design industry to prefer sustainable products in their specifications and purchasing.

Superior Essex is honored to be the recipient of these prestigious awards, and will continue to grow and develop products for the sustainability market now and into the future.
