The much sought after ISO 14001 certification for Environmental Management Systems has been awarded to cable manufacturer TRATOS CAVI SPA of Italy across its entire array of factories.
The certification is for the management and control of environmental systems at Tratos’ sites throughout Italy and follows the recent announcement of the same award for Tratos’ UK site. The various sites provide design, manufacture and supply of flexible cables and cords, instrumentation and control cables and power cables, as well as insulation and sheathing materials used on these cables.
Tratos is committed to reducing its impact on the environment and has implemented a number of procedures to affect this, including keeping the packaging carbon footprint as low as possible through, for example, the use of recycled material and local sourcing. The awarding of ISO 14001 is further proof of its ‘green’ commitment.
Tratos is one of the major European manufacturers of Electrical, Electronic and Fibre Optic cables with clients including electrical contracting and manufacturing organisations, regional electricity distribution and government departments. Tratos has earned an enviable reputation for product innovation and quality with, for example, its Tratos Firesafe range of Fire Resistance cables designed to meet the latest standards for fire detection, alarm systems and emergency lighting. In addition, Tratos owns complimentary business Modular Wiring Systems, which produces rapidly and easily installed modular sub-circuit distribution systems prefabricated off-site, using quality Tratos cable.
