Carbon dioxide emissions are the primary driver of global climate change. It is widely recognised that to avoid the worst impacts of climate change, the world needs to urgently reduce emissions. Tratos is eager to participate in and contribute to the outcome of the COP26, which will bring parties together to accelerate action towards the goals of the Paris Agreement and the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change.
Since 1980, Tratos 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 works to bring greener, cleaner and accessible solutions to every industry sector it manufactures for, from ports and marine to mass transit and communications. It also recycles.
It is also active in reducing its own carbon footprint and operates a large-scale tree-planting programme to off-set impacts.
Most recently Tratos has secured ISO 14067 accreditation for reducing its carbon footprint. The company had plenty more to offer in terms of other measures to make its own and customers’ businesses greener and cleaner. The new standard builds on the existing ISO standards for life cycle assessments (ISO 14040/44) and environmental labels and declarations (ISO 14025).
Tratos strategy to reduce CO2 is made of 4 pillars:
The first pillar of Tratos’ CO2 strategy is about measuring the carbon footprint that a product has throughout its life cycle. Tratos believes that the first step to promote sustainable development and to positively impact the environment is to become aware of the level of emission that a company itself brings into the environment with its products.
The second pillar of Tratos’s CO2 strategy is the reduction pillar. This pillar builds from the measuring pillar and goes a step further. Indeed, within this stage, Tratos, by recognising the environmental impact of its cables emerged from the measuring operations, attempts to reduce the carbon footprint emission of its cables.
Measuring and reducing CO2 are strategies that are not enough for a sustainable-oriented company like Tratos. That is why Tratos is working to introduce new materials and new cables to reduce CO2. Tratos is attempting to innovate to support renewable energy sectors with its product in order to achieve an environmental revolution. This is why Tratos is working with ENI to collect and store the CO2 emission produced by our factories.
