Our Current Environmental Performance
The Group measures and reports the environmental impacts that are the most significant in terms of responsibility towards employees, local communities and as a competitiveness and value factor for the Group.
The indicators used to keep track of the environmental performance of the Group are the consumption of energy and water; the quantity of hazardous and non-hazardous waste produced and the greenhouse gas emissions.

Our Environmental Performance Targets
We have set clear goals and targets for company-wide improved environmental performance. Our environmental targets focus on two main areas: facilitating access to sustainable energy and infrastructure; and pursuing responsible consumption of resources. In the first , of annual revenue coming from low carbon products. In the second , we have set targets to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and energy consumption, and are working to meet those goals. Furthermore Prysmian has fixed a target to recycle of its waste in 2020.
What We’re Doing to Reach our Targets
Re-lamping with LED and smart metering.Toggle Details
In particular, between 2017 and 2018 we launched a project for the installation of LED lighting systems in eleven operating units located in Italy and the UK. The LED project was already completed and tested in ten of the eleven units, and by mid-2020 the installation and testing of the new lighting systems are planned to be completed in the last British unit. IN 2019, the RE-Lamping with LED project was also started in two additional Asean sites, to be completed by 2020.
Energy consumption measurement systems – already installed in some Countries, are planned to be installed in all the Group operating units, starting in 2020.
