ECO CABLE, green inside

We manufacture environmentally-friendly products that bring energy to homes, infrastructures and cities worldwide.


We are strongly focused on sustainability and that is why our business strategy is consistent with the UN Sustainable Development Goals. We express this through products that make these just as green inside when installed in homes, infrastructures and cities around the world.


ECO CABLE is the first green label in the cable industry.


ECO CABLE uses the same measurable and recognized assessment criteria as established certification labels, namely the EU Ecolabel and is a complement to the net-zero Scope 3 target, paving the way for a specific extension to the cable industry.


We aim to share the same green language as our customers, bringing to their supply chains products that meet measurable and recognized criteria, in a perfect fit with a circular economy.

Six measurable and internationally recognized criteria

To be ECO CABLE-labelled, each cable family has to pass a rating process based on the following criteria: Carbon Footprint (calculated according to “cradle-to-gate” approach and combined with other parameters to achieve full “cradle-to-grave” carbon footprint); Substances of Very High Concern (absence of substances that are carcinogenic, mutagenic, toxic for reproduction, or hazardous for the environment); Recyclability/Circularity (materials used in cables are potentially recyclable or products themselves are potentially fully recyclable); Recycling Input Rate (presence of recycled material in a cable, both purchased from external suppliers and reused by Prysmian Group itself); Environmental Benefits (low-carbon enabling products, CPR compliant cables and cables used for green energy sources); Cable Transmission Efficiency (the more efficient the cable, the more sustainable its performance).

ECO CABLE is our pledge to provide transparent and clear indications and information, using recognized criteria, on the greenness of our cables based on our three key drivers: SUSTAINABILITY, RELIABILITY and QUALITY.


Prysmian Group Sustainability Scorecard indicates 20% of total products assessed using ECO CABLE criteria by 2022.
