Working to help deliver the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals

Tratos does more than simply ‘support’ the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals, it is working to deliver them every day.

It has adopted the UN’s goals as its own values within a framework for the company’s growth across product development, working practices, CSR and corporate focus.

Tratos aims to be greener and cleaner, stay people-focused and innovate across every element of its business to deliver the promise.  It aims to offer better choices for its customers, to make it easier for them to deliver them too.

Here are the United Nation’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals – and Tratos’ response:

Since 1966 Tratos’ mission has been ‘to create jobs in deprived areas’ to reduce poverty, and bring hope and prosperity.  Tratos puts people and health first.

Tratos operates The Tratos Academy and supports Esharelife Foundation which exists to fund education and vocational learning for children and young people in some of the most disadvantaged communities.

Half of Tratos’ Holding Board are women, half Tratos’ shareholders are women.  In common with most family businesses, Tratos has gender equality.  The majority of Tratos’ shareholders are women.  The company actively promotes women to senior management roles and operates a pro-gender bias.

Since 1966, Tratos makes innovative, advanced cables that connect people worldwide.  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.  It has partnered Aenor The Spanish Association for Standardization and Certification to develop technology to help companies measure – and so manage – their carbon footprint.

Tratos supplies superconducting wire for the world ITER reactor.  It is a partner within an international Fusion4Power team recreating the power of the sun to generate green energy and is active within the wind energy sector.  It is the only cable maker to power its production lines (in Italy) using its own Hydro Power Station.  Tratos has developed a range of environmentally-friendly products and operates a series of measures to promote affordable and clean energy.

Tratos is a member of the ICAS Consortium.  ICAS’ involvement in global sustainability networks and forums ensure that it and its members are as effective and influential as possible, and connected with the right stakeholder organisations.  The Committee works with, or exchanges view with these organisations to share ideas, information, research and other resources in order to develop the area of environmental sustainability in business.
