In Part 1 of the this GreenChoice blog, we discussed how choosing low smoke zero halogen (LSZH) cables can offer a much safer industrial cabling alternative. Now, we will discuss the business arguments for GreenChoice LSZH cables and offer an opportunity to download the new Belden GreenChoice white paper for the complete argument for LSZH cables.

Today, even though standards in North America do not require non-halogenated cables, incentives are in place. For example, builders can get Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) incentives for using LSZH (green) wiring; it is possible to get LEED Pilot Credit 54 for up to 2 LEED points per installation. LEED is intended to provide a standardized framework for recognizing and actualizing practical and measurable green standards in design, construction, operations and maintenance for building professionals.

“Green” means different things to different people, but overall “green consciousness” is a trend that is being embraced globally to improve consumer safety and to protect the environment. One major government initiative has been to remove the use of halogens from a number of products—including electrical and electronic cables.

Although awareness of—and demand for—green products in the wire and cable industry is still emerging, it is never too soon to become cognizant of the capabilities and benefits of halogen-free cables. In particular, it is possible today to purchase cable that meets the current environmental standards (using a low smoke zero halogen design [LSZH]) that also demonstrates the reliability associated with traditional cable products.
