Sustainability innovator and independent cable manufacturer Tratos has been awarded a Silver Medal, placing it among the 25% of highest-placed companies scrutinised by the eco-ratings platform.
Ecovadis is the world’s largest provider of business sustainability ratings, with a global network of more than 75,000 rated companies.
Cable manufacturer Tratos launched its sustainability strategy earlier this year, the result of years of innovating greener business practices; from manufacturing longer-lasting, greener and recyclable cable to ensuring packaging is made from recycled materials. The company offsets its own CO2 and operates sustainable delivery and inventory practices through its supply chain to offer clients sustainability advantages.
Since 1980, Tratos Italy has used clean, renewable energy from its own hydroelectric plant. In 2001, the company started producing Tratos Green, a cable made using only hydroelectric energy. The company goes beyond compliance with its environmental policy and holds ISO 14001 for its environmental management systems.
Now a global business, Tratos works with a number of other environment-focused innovators. It has partnered with Spanish agency Aenor to help companies measure, and so manage, their own carbon footprint and is working on a UK project to recover land-based CO2 and put it into a deep store under the sea bed.
Tratos continues to produce greener cable to afford its clients environmental, social, and ethical performance advances every time they choose Tratos cable.
Industry and services are under immense pressure to improve transparency and sustainability practices. Tratos has signed up for the UN’s 17 Sustainability Goals.

Towards Net Zero Emissions
Carbon dioxide (CO2) is the main greenhouse gas, accounting for 81% of total UK greenhouse gas emissions in 2019, while 87% of all human-produced carbon dioxide emissions come from the burning of fossil fuels like coal, natural gas and oil. Tratos has in place standards and policies to reduce the CO2 emissions as well as to calculate the CO2 emissions and to mitigate their impact by planting trees, as well as using clean energy sources.
