Our relationships for the future

Collaborating with other industry members on technical and regulatory solutions makes the entire sector stronger and more innovative and strengthens Prysmian’s leadership.

“Collaboration is essential when it comes to sustainable innovation in the energy and telecommunications sector. Prysmian Group is an active participant in facing new challenges,” said Chief Sustainability Officer Maria Cristina Bifulco.

Prysmian Group's leadership in the cables sector means it needs to play a proactive role in dealing with new issues as they come up and finding solutions by sharing best practices across the entire sector. Prysmian actively participates in major trade associations and industry groups to take part in setting policy guidelines along with partners and competitors. Reaching sustainability goals requires industry-wide teamwork. Membership in trade groups aimed at improving the industry’s sustainability is therefore strategic for Prysmian.

In 2022 total contribution and other spending mainly related to industrial and trade associations amounted to approx. 3.5 million euro.
