Environmental Commitment

At Belden, we believe that responsible stewardship, managing our climate impacts, and driving sustainability through innovation is critical to the success of our business and our planet.
We seek to embed sustainable practices into our operations and to minimize our environmental footprint where possible. As we progress toward the goals we’ve set, we’ve built on old initiatives and explored new technologies to reduce our greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, waste sent to landfill, and water consumption. Additionally, we are addressing the impacts our suppliers and products can have on the environment. From introducing new renewable energy projects, to expanding our recycling initiatives, to assessing the environmental impact of our products, we have many sustainable efforts underway to minimize our environmental impact.
