Our commitment to a more sustainable future

Commitment to preserving our planet and the well-being of our people is central to our values.

And the real beauty is that each of us in any function is able to contribute to a more sustainable society and a more sustainable company by using our skills and driven by our own intrinsic motivation.

Powering the planet, and protecting it too

The United Nations ‘Decade of Action’ programme has defined tangible solutions to the challenges posed by its 2030 Sustainable Development Goals.

The first and most important objective is to make electrical energy production clean. A transition is required, from the current model — which is based on fossil fuel use, contributes to around 60% of greenhouse gas emissions, and is consequently the main cause of climate change — to one based on generating energy from renewable sources. This will preserve our ecosystems for future generations and can be made accessible to an ever-greater number of people in all regions of the world to support their civil and economic progress.

Prysmian Group is committed to supporting the achievement of the global agenda goals by contributing to building and upgrading infrastructures for energy transmission and distribution, and for telecommunications — the essential drivers for the transition to a new development model for civil society.

It is for this reason that we are engaged in continuous technological innovation with around €107 million investment in R&D in 2021, over 50 partnerships for innovation and about 5,600 patents filed.
