CommScope's COVID-19 Customer & Partner Hub Visit
CommScope’s commitment to sustainability is one of our core values and is demonstrated through our efforts to help customers meet their own sustainability goals with the use of our products and solutions.
As part of our commitment to product sustainability and our 2021 objectives, CommScope has conducted life cycle assessments and developed environmental product declarations for our Ethernet cables. The life cycle assessment is a methodology for quantifying the effects of a product throughout its entire life cycle—from the extraction of the raw materials used to make a product through the end of its usable life.
We can report the environmental effects measured through a life cycle assessment in a standardized and verified way by using environmental product declarations. Understanding the environmental effects of different products helps customers make better decisions about which products to use. Our environmental product declarations incorporate the materials categories of sustainable building programs like Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) and the Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method (BREEAM), as well as meet regulatory requirements for material transparency.
We also offer our Product Compliance online tool to obtain the part-specific Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) and Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) compliance status for many of our products.
The energy consumption of products during their “use” phase is one of the most significant environmental impacts. As such, CommScope takes a leadership approach in our industries by actively participating in a broad array of energy efficiency initiatives worldwide. CommScope helps to shape product energy efficiency voluntary agreements in the U.S., Canada and Europe. We’re proud to have always been compliant with the relevant set-top box and small network equipment energy efficiency voluntary agreements, also facilitating our customers’ compliance, where we have a reporting responsibility.
CommScope continuously looks for ways to reduce the environmental impact of our products. Our 2021 Sustainability Report provides specific details and achievements related to product sustainability.
