A Greener Network

Hey everyone, 

 

We’re committed to building a greener network. Here’s how we are doing so far…

Renewable Energy:

67% of our estate is powered by renewable energy. We are working with Landlords to encourage them to switch to more renewable sources.

 

Supply Chain & Low Carbon Purchasing:

We’re working with our suppliers to reduce emissions by 30% by 2025.

 

Energy Efficient Infrastructure:

We’re using more energy efficient technology within our network, including: Smart turn-off within our self-organising networks, when demand is low. Remote radio heads which reduce loss of signal strength by up to 50%, increasing base station efficiency.  Single RAN which consists of multipurpose hardware that supports 2G, 3G, 4G and 5G technologies – cutting down the need for excess hardware. We’re also trialling reducing the footprint of base stations and centralising them in 2020.

 

Carbon Trust Level 3 Certified:

Carbon Trust, Level 3 Certified recognises organisations that take a best practice approach to measuring and managing their environmental impacts. We were the first business in the world to achieve this certification level and today are one of only three businesses to have done so.

 

Remember, all of the images we share on this board can be shared with the wider customer community, so feel free to use these as an aid to your network conversations.
