Tratos Joins Industry Charter

Tratos has joined a group of European and worldwide cable manufacturers by becoming the newest member to sign the Europacable Industry Charter.

Europacable represents cable and wire manufacturers throughout Europe and pledges to uphold high quality, sustainable and ethical cable manufacturing and development.

The Charter’s members include some of the largest producers in the world, along with highly specialised small and medium sized enterprises across the continent.

Tratos Group Vice President, Ennio Bragagni Capaccini, said that they are proud to be adding their name to the Industry Charter, as its principles are in line with those of Tratos, adding that the group will fully uphold its commitment to the delivery of continuous improvements throughout its business activity.

The Charter was launched in November last year and sets out the shared objectives and principles of the industry.

It also aims for signatories to play a proactive role in the evaluation and monitoring of emerging issues, while coming up with innovative solutions that produce cables that exceed the minimum requirements.

The association’s energy and communication cable manufacturer was founded in 1991 and currently employs approximately 70,000 throughout the world, more than 50% of which are based in Europe.

In 2015, members of the group generated a turnover in excess of 20 billion Euros.

Tratos manufactures its products primarily in the UK and Italy, but also has bases worldwide and, as a member of Europacable, will receive relevant information about developments in EU policy, as well as being represented at EU level and engaging in policy processes.

The Europacable Charter acknowledges the requirement of meeting business stakeholders’ demands, while also supporting the interests of the environment, the wider community, customers and employees.

Charter signatories have pledged a commitment to continuous achievement in innovation and product compliance, social responsibility and business ethics, climate change and environment and health and safety.
