Globally, the ICT industry is responsible for around two percent of all CO2 emission. This is on par with the aviation industry. Our CSR policy is aimed at reducing our share of this pollution as much as possible. Through our services, we can also help reduce CO2 emissions. Working closely with our customers, we can guarantee them a socially responsible solution. In the form of Green ICT, we deliver concrete energy and cost-saving ICT solutions, enabling our customers to also achieve their environmental objectives. For example, we can transfer customer servers to our energy-efficient green data centers. And through our workplace services, we can offer flexible ICT applications which are not dependent on time or place.
We strive to contribute to a more sustainable ecosystem
We’re driven by our commitment to living in a sustainable society and being a sustainable business on a sustainable planet. Through internal awareness programs, the efforts of our people, and by harnessing technology, we are reducing the energy, carbon, and resource impacts of our business. We can power down our systems overnight and at weekends and use virtualization to share servers in our data centers. We make “Smart Work”, using collaborative technology to reduce commuting and business travel. And we’ve switched to more sustainable sources of electricity.
Our commitment to sustainability is broader than the environment. For example, our community program enables us to support local and international communities by giving them access to education through the Information & Communication Technology (ICT) skills of our people.
Our transformation journey is underway, but there is a lot more that we want to do. We look forward to sharing lessons learned and playing a pivotal role in driving positive change within our ecosystem.
