Superior Essex Communications Achieves Certification Milestone of 8 Years Zero Waste to Landfill
ATLANTA, GA — For the eighth year in a row, Superior Essex Communications...
We’re proud to be a company that is leading by example, and we’re honored to have achieved a Gold Level rating within the Telecommunication Industry Association’s (TIA) Sustainability Assessment, the highest level a company can achieve. And as we look toward the future, we will continue to raise the bar on our sustainability efforts to make a positive impact on our environment, customers, stakeholders and employees.

The TIA’s spider diagram below shows a company’s performance against best practices in each area of the model. This diagram should helps companies identify areas of strength and areas which may need developing in the future.
The TIA then compared our company’s scores to those of other best-in-class suppliers (as seen in the outer ring of the spider diagram above) and against their intermediate scoring levels, and the overall result that Superior Essex received was:
Gold: Excellent performance level. Congratulations! You are in a strong position to deliver bottom-line commercial benefits and competitive advantage to the organization and are approaching best practice.
Silver: Solid performance level, good breadth of performance, good understanding and capable of delivering financial and commercial benefits and competitive advantage.
Bronze: Entry level performance, some understanding, some demonstration of competence but not systematic or widespread across the organization.
Below Bronze: Not reaching entry level performance
We are true believers in teamwork, and we could not have achieved any of these efforts alone. That’s why we’re proud members of the Sustainable Leadership Forum organized by the Cymplx Group.
Superior Essex is a member of both the Atlanta and Philadelphia chapters, and we are elevating our corporate sustainability program through peer-to-peer learning. We are joined by numerous Fortune 50, 100 and 500 organizations like The Home Depot, Comcast, Cox Communications and Campbell’s Soup to collectively evolve our sustainability platforms for the greater good.
We are also proud to have our own Brad R. Johnson, President of Superior Essex Communications, serving as a corporate board member of the Global Enabling Sustainability Initiative (GeSI). He does so alongside an equally impressive cohort of corporate members to drive the organization’s strategy and direction, as well as continue their ambitious sustainability work across the ICT sector.
