TELECOMS SUSTAINABILITY

If sustainability is a strategic focus our support and insights can help

Why telcos are embracing sustainability

Tackling climate change has moved to the top of everyone’s agenda. This includes the telecoms industry. Operators and their partners are committing to reduce their carbon footprints over the next decade: in many cases to net zero. Furthermore, operators are increasing their carbon ‘hand-print’ by supporting their customers to transition to low-carbon business and society.

Realising this vision comes with many challenges and requires more than goodwill. It requires new practices, metrics, governance, skills and investment. However, the incentives for doing so are becoming clearer…along with the risks for not doing so.

Sustainability is a key component of the Co-ordination Age: STL’s vision for the future of telecoms. Through our research, consulting and participation in telco sustainability events we share best practice, insights and supporting rationale for the industry to accelerates its transition.
