Superior Essex, a leading manufacturer and supplier of communications cabling products, announced that its PowerWise Cable and Digital Building Application products received Top Product of the Year in the Environmental Leader and Energy Manager Today Awards. The annual award recognizes excellence in products and services that provide companies with energy and environmental benefits.

One judge said of PowerWise Cable and the Digital Building Application, “The Superior Essex product is well thought out and reduces energy while enhancing the user experience. Bonus points for manufacturing in a zero waste-to-landfill plant.”

The built environment is smarter, more adaptive and unified like never before, and requires cabling that is just as efficient and versatile. To meet these demands, Superior Essex developed PowerWise, the leading-edge Power-over-Ethernet cable suite. This solution helps customers optimize, customize, and unify their enterprise space while offering improved energy efficiency, occupant health, safety and productivity. A leader in environmental performance, Superior Essex products contribute to all green building standards, including LEED, WELL Building and the Living Building Challenge.

“We are honored to be recognized by Environmental Leader and Energy Manager Today for the environmental performance of our PowerWise Cable and Digital Building Application products,” says Eric Perry, Superior Essex Vice President – Engineering Services and Quality. “These technological solutions reflect Superior -Essex firm belief that the products which interconnect the world must also respect it.”

With rapid advancements and a continuous rate of change in the field, sustainability and energy professionals have a notoriously difficult time knowing what products to choose to help their companies increase energy, environmental, and sustainability performance. The Environmental Leader and Energy Manager Today Product & Project Awards give companies a solid base of products, vetted by experts, from which to choose, as well as a variety of successful projects to illustrate how sustainability and energy management is helping companies improve.

"With a highly respected judging panel and a strict set of judging criteria, entrants faced an extremely high bar for the level of product or project to qualify for an award," says Tim Hermes, publisher of Environmental Leader parent company, Business Sector Media.
