Reducing carbon footprint
Although cable manufacturing is not an energy-intensive process, Axon’ Cable strives to reduce its carbon footprint on the environment. The company has implemented an action plan which aims at decreasing greenhouse gases by 3 % from 2012 to 2014. The plan is based on the following actions:
- Change of the lights
- Reinforced insulation of the buildings
- Installation of condensing boilers
- Installation of heat pumps
- Optimised use of compressors (weekends, bank holidays, variable speed).
- Automatic switch off for non used machines.
Being located on the countryside makes Axon' particularly aware of the environment.
Axon' Cable is engaged in the management of waste production and optimization of waste sorting: waste sorting, green waste, battery recycling. Less waste for the environment!
In 2012, Axon' recycled the equivalent of 25 tons of steel.
By enhancing the value of 30 tons of cartons in 2012, Axon' saved 510 trees.
The company also invested in a machine which transforms cartons into material for packaging.
In terms of sustainable development, Axon' gives paper to sort to a local organization which employs disabled people. The paper is then sold to a local company.
