HSE Organizational structure
In 2016 Europacable underwent an internal organizational restructuring to better address the EU policy and cable and wire market developments. The then Environmental Committee took the name of HSE Team and saw its scope extended to cover also safety, social and other sustainable topics. The team has a dedicated Secretariat, operates horizontally and supports the business-oriented teams: Industrial Policy, Energy Union and Digital Single Market Teams. Like other Europacable Teams, the HSE Team has set up a Leadership Team representing member companies of various sizes and National Associations.
