Vodafone announced it has reduced its carbon footprint by 25,000 tonnes in a period of three years.
That was the result of the deployment of energy-efficient measures to its business operations, a move that resulted in a saving of 100GWh of energy.
The telecoms giant estimates the energy saved could power a town with a population of 65,000 people for a year and represents a financial saving of around £10 million.
The energy savings were achieved by optimising heating and cooling systems in offices and managing airflow to keep technical sites cool in the most energy-efficient way.
Scott Petty, Chief Technology Officer, Vodafone UK, said: “Combined with our commitment to power our network with 100% renewable electricity by 2021 and helping our customers reduce their own carbon footprints with our connectivity and Internet of Things (IoT) technology, this will ensure we are helping to build a more sustainable future.”
Vodafone has pledged to power its network using 100% renewable electricity by July 2021 and to help its customers save 350 million tonnes of carbon dioxide by 2030 through its connectivity and IoT technology.
