Building Worth

Our success depends on our customers’ success. We build worth for our shareholders, customers and other stakeholders by achieving the highest quality and best service in our industry, and delivering it with a culture of excellence.

Our Building Worth goal is to grow revenue from our portfolio of innovative products, solutions and packaging that drive sustainability to $1 billion in 2025.
Delivering success means responsibly evolving our company in a sustainable manner that provides unparalleled products and services. At Southwire, responsibly evolving also allows us to exceed stakeholder expectations and flourish as a company.

Climate Change & Zero Carbon Transition

To maintain our leadership status in the wire and cable manufacturing industry and help drive the clean energy transition, we must address the risks and opportunities of climate change – now and in the coming decades.

Southwire is working to integrate a climate change scenario analysis into our Enterprise Risk Management process to identify and prepare for climate-related risks across our business.

We are also working to diversify our business and create resilient solutions through our recent acquisitions of Topaz Lighting, OBI Partners and Novinium, as well as continued product investment. In 2021, approximately 61% of our R&D spend included products with sustainable attributes.

Delivering Shared Value

Southwire is invested in developing new solutions to help our business and our customers reduce their carbon impact. In 2021, we became one of the first companies globally to establish a sustainability-linked Asset Based Loan facility, aligning our strategic growth initiatives with our Carbon Zero goal.

Last year, we also collaborated with BHP, a global resources company, to successfully trace emissions from copper mining to rod production in the pursuit of a carbon neutral product offering.
