Fossil fuel emissions have created significant public health issues globally, in particular for underserved communities. According to research from the Centre for Energy-Efficient Telecommunications (CEET) and Bell Labs, emissions from information communications and technology account for more than 830 million tons of CO2 annually – approximately 2% of global CO2 emissions.
Our vision is for a world sourced by clean power, without air pollution from telecom infrastructure.
As the telecom industry makes carbon neutrality a key priority, our customers are proactively transforming tower sites to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and increase the use of renewable energy. Carbon neutral emissions are no longer a distant goal, it is a guiding principle to doing business across all six continents.
Our products and Energy-as-a-Service (EaaS) solutions significantly help our customers reduce their carbon footprint to achieve net zero or carbon neutral emissions. Carrier and Tower companies implement our intelligent energy storage batteries and clean energy systems at cell sites, HUB sites, fiber Nodes and NOC centers – allowing cleaner, quieter and healthier air for all.
By facilitating access to clean and reliable communications, our systems improve air quality for communities historically affected by air pollution from telecommunications.
As part of our commitment to improve air quality for all, we aim to take our technology and resources a step further by integrating a philanthropic 1:1:1 model in 2020. It is vital that we give back to the communities in which we serve while engaging our employees in the services that are intrinsic to the community.
