The net-zero enablement use case directory

About the Telecoms Net Zero Enablement Use Case Directory

This telecoms net-zero enablement use case directory highlights a selection of sustainability use cases that telcos could offer to their customers to enable them to reach net zero.

  • Assess the value of different enablement services through our methodology for categorising them based on their level of customer impact.
  • Drive alignment within the organisation on the proposition and requirements of use cases.
