In another push to reduce its carbon footprint and meet increasing demand for sustainable and environmentally friendly cable solutions, Hellenic Cables has entered an agreement with Enel Green Power to ensure that 100% of its power supply needs in Greece originate from renewable energy.
The agreement includes all of Hellenic Cables’ industrial facilities in Greece, including its flagship submarine cables plant in Corinth and the high-voltage cables plant in Thiva. Enel Green Power guarantees the origin of renewable electricity through its large renewables portfolio in the country.
