The impact of climate change, pollution, water shortage and other resource use issues will become more significant, particularly for emerging economies, and especially those vulnerable to drought, flooding and other weather extremes.

Environmental issues are prominent in the UNGC Principles and we are reporting on our programs to reduce our main impacts.

Managing environmental issues makes good Resource business sense in:

   
Cost

Reducing cost

Resource efficiency generally means cost efficiency.
Risk

Managing risk

By helping to address global environmental issues we can help reduce impacts on customers and infrastructure.
Innovation

Innovation

It can lead to products and services which use mobile technology to help people reduce their impact.
Reputation

Reputation

Improving our reputation with customers, communities, employees and government.

As well as focusing on reducing our own environmental impact, we know there is a growing recognition that technology is a key component of the fight against climate change, and that mobile technology can help people and businesses reduce their carbon emissions.

    Mobilink saves 39.5 million liters of diesel since 2013

    With power outages often lasting up to 16 hours a day in Pakistan, Mobilink’s base stations run on diesel when the grid fails. In 2015, the company continued to adapt base stations to use hybrid battery systems, meaning they only revert to diesel once the batteries run down. In this way, diesel use dropped from 67 million liters in 2013, to 41 million liters in 2014, and now to 27.5 million liters.

    WIND meets emission reduction targets

    In 2015, WIND achieved the emission targets defined as part of the WIND-WWF partnership on energy and climate, reducing emissions per unit of traffic by 34% compared to 2013 on the basis of energy efficiency measures. This was supported by an increase in renewable energy purchased, from 30% to 70%.

    In March, WIND was the main partner of ‘Earth Hour’, the worldwide WWF event for raising awareness of climate change, supporting it with an online campaign. In December, WIND was supporting the Christmas WWF campaign ‘save the humans’ through a mobile and social media campaign
