Tratos carries out environmental and social initiatives with a particular focus on forced or compulsory labour, health and security, freedom of association and the right to collective bargaining, discrimination, disciplinary procedures, working hours and wages. It is Tratos’ belief that ethical business conduct is also a condition for a firm’s success. Tratos already has a strong environmental policy in place and works with customers to find more environmentally friendly solutions to their cable requirements.

Tratos is fully committed to providing protection both for people working with its cables and for the environment.
