Our aim is to save energy, water and other resources, reduce greenhouse gas emissions and protect the environment. This means improving the performance of our own operations, but also helping customers do the same. We have set challenging targets to cut greenhouse gas emissions from our operations and our base station technology leads the market in energy efficiency.
There are three strands to our strategy:
- Operating more efficiently
- Designing products and services with the environment in mind that help telecoms operators reduce energy consumption in their networks
- Delivering solutions that facilitate a net positive impact.
All of these are important. But the biggest impact will come in applications beyond the ICT sector, where around 98 percent of energy is used globally. To realize the potential, we are working with customers to provide smart applications such as electricity grid management that will help to create a low carbon economy.
