Our Corporate Commitment to Sustainability

 

As a leader in the broadband industry, we have made a corporate commitment to also become a leader in industrial sustainability. We believe our partners, their customers, the community and our employees deserve a safe workplace with minimal impact on local and global ecosystems.

We’re constantly implementing innovative ways to minimize our environmental footprint through energy efficiency, waste reduction, recycling and conservation, and we encourage our partners to commit to sustainable practices as well.

Recycling Practices

We are DEC certified as a low-quantity waste generator at our headquarters in East Syracuse, NY.

  • We generate fewer than 500 pounds of waste per month – which is 1,500 pounds fewer than the DEC requires – thanks to our recycling programs.

  • We've implemented an on-site oil recycling program to cut down the amount of oil we use by 96.5% per year.

  • Our scrap metal chips are spun in a centrifuge to achieve a moisture content of less than 2% by weight.

Energy Efficiency

  • We're improving energy efficiency through HVAC by automating all HVAC controls, and installing new equipment to balance air flow and optimize ventilation.

  • We decreased our energy consumption by installing external LED lighting, motion-controlled lighting systems and low-energy consumption air compressors.

Waste-reducing Products

We offer sustainable packaging options like our reusable reel and cable bags. Since we launched the cable bag, we’ve eliminated more than 1.7 million cubic feet of cardboard and 802,000 pounds of plastic.


ISO Certifications

Quality and safety are also paramount to us. Each of our plants around the world are ISO certified, ensuring your quality products are manufactured to the highest standards in the industry.
