Nexans launches ‘green drum’ programme

Cable company Nexans has increased the scope of its commitment to sustainable development by implementing its new ‘green drum’ programme.  

In this initiative, Nexans is working with its wooden-cable-drum suppliers to become the world’s first cable manufacturer to upgrade to drums holding the Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification schemes (PEFC) certification.

The drums are designed to be reused a number of times and, according to their age and condition, be replaced each year.

For all replacements from 2010 onwards, Nexans is deploying only green drums produced with PEFC-certified wood and carrying the PEFC logo.
