Minimising our carbon footprint – Performance in 2014/15
As we grow our business and extend voice and data services for our customers, we are expanding our network and handling more data. To minimise the resulting increases in energy use and carbon emissions, we continue to roll out energy efficiency measures and new technologies across our network. These include smart metering, hybrid generators and tri-generation (combined heat, cooling and power) systems.
At the same time, by extending our carbon-reducing services, we can enable more of our enterprise customers to achieve significant carbon reductions in their own organisations. We have set a new goal for our business, which links our aim to minimise our own carbon footprint with the savings we can help our customers make: within three years, we aim to enable our customers to reduce their carbon emissions by twice the amount of carbon we generate through our own activities.
