Green Drums certificat

  • Certified wood for Nexans drums

In 2010, Nexans became the world’s first cable manufacturer to upgrade to drums holding the PEFC certification. Now Nexans’ Green Drums initiative holds both PEFC (for Europe) and FSC (Worldwide) certifications. PEFC (Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification) and FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) are organizations dedicated to promote Sustainable Forest Management through independent third-party certification. They work throughout the entire forest supply chain to promote good practices and to ensure that timber forest products are produced respecting the highest ecological, social and ethical standards.


  • Drum return Programme

On customer’s request, empty drums are picked up on site by a logistic provider selected by Nexans. The returned drums are repaired and cleaned up and re-used (or in some cases recycles).
